I was pretty disappointed when I moved in my new office/studio and realized that the pretty little tile "shelf" that took up the whole side of the room made it really difficult to arrange furniture. Lucky for me, my shredder accidentally crashed into one of the tiles & broke it. While I was unhappily putting it back together, I realized that the tiles were just glued onto cement blocks.
THE MAN and I had been putting off taking out the shelf as it seemed a little daunting, seeing how the cement blocks were likely to be cemented in. Thankfully when we finally did tackle it a few weekends back, they came right out! In fact, I saved nearly all the tiles! Not sure what I'll do with them, but one never knows...
Here is what the floor & wall looked like after everything was removed.
I then painted the wall on the bottom, painted the floor a brick-ish color, and then we added trim! And spent an hour or two rearranging my office...Love my new layout!
I am still not settled completely, but it's a lot better of a layout than when I was first into the space during the summer. Plus, I can fit more furniture!
Here's the other side! THE MAN says we might redo that brown shelf at some point...I can't wait!
While we were messing around with molding, we added a really old yard stick to my black shelf.
All my little things are so much fun....and make me happy when I turn around from working at my desk!
Hope your Hump Day is fabulous! I'm back tomorrow with a preview to a project I'm tackling!
