And I 100% agree! He needs a nice quiet place to focus and work.
So, Robert's moving downstairs!!!! BYE BYE upstairs office! Papers EVERYWHERE!
(side note: I heard someone talking about organization the other day and she said papers were "nothing but delayed decisions"! I look at my papers a lot differently now!)
So we have these 2 rooms downstairs that we have painted and carpeted over the years (they were cement and paneling before). One is completely closed off and the other is a big room leading out to the laundry room and garage. The big one is the "playroom". And could use some major organization. We can't seem to find anything that works really well for us yet. It gets a lot of use though!
Here is the room cleaned out. Before, it had a couple of desks, a full size bed, pack n play, old tv, stuff....basically it was a junk/storage room. No purpose.
NEW PURPOSE.....Robert's home office!!!
Hey Robert, do you mind if we store some stuff in here too!?!?
Ok...we'll let you have this space all to yourself! Sorry, that was a crazy idea of mine!
He thought painting the walls stark white would brighten things up since there aren't any windows.
That was fun. The kids enjoyed helping a little!
Of course, I wanted in on the action too.
Robert trying to teach me. Doesn't he know that I can do this!?!
See!???!!!! I mean, come on, I'm married to a painter! I should know a little something about painting! ;-)
I rolled out the walls while Robert cut in!
And I would not advise anyone to let babies play in the room while you paint. They might get into things, and they just MIGHT lean up against the wall. Maybe.
But I will say that it kept him busy for a while.
He took off ALL the little pieces of paper that held the threads together. It's Olivia's friendship bracelet kit! YIKES! Little Destroyer.
We knocked it out pretty quick!
He works SO fast! Love watchin' my man work!
Get it done baby!
Perfectionist....he's probably going over what I did. :-)
Moving the office downstairs meant re routing internet too! So we drilled a couple of holes in the house, ran it through the downstairs, and VOILA! Internet re-routed!
Clean new white office! So as of right this second, 1/2 of it is downstairs and 1/2 is still upstairs!
After Mr. Perfectionist decides where he wants all his furniture (he's been measuring), and can go offline long enough to re-setup his computers (yes, 3 of them) he'll be rockin' and rollin' downstairs!
Oh, and what are we doing his old office?????
Glad you asked!
It's going to be my Mom Hub! That's what I'm calling it. My space to spread out, get organized, clip coupons, ad match, read, study, craft, home school....WHATEVER I WANT! :-)
I will be moving out of my tiny corner in the kitchen!
