Extreme Makeover: Office and Hallway Edition

Well, we just couldn't take it... our last white room HAD to be painted.  Hub's office is seriously the coldest room in the house for some reason (I'm becoming increasingly convinced that our apt has no insulation whatsoever), and the stark white walls made it feel even colder.  Given that he spends at least 25 hours a week in this room, he deserved a nice paint job in there too.  Here are the before and afters.

Opposite wall after (we moved the hope chest into here to make room for the rocking chair in the bedroom, and hubs rearranged several things on his walls to simplify):

Hubs says it makes him crave coffee and chocolate.  :)  Then, we had just enough left to tackle the very last bit of white wall in the apt... the bottom of the hallway.  It looks even better than I thought it would!  Before:


After (the dresser is going to be the baby's changing table):



  1. Very pretty! You've been nesting for awhile :)

  2. I just discovered your blog and I really like it, had to add you onto my frequent read list! I'm getting excited, we are going to be Moms soon!

    Love all your painting! I wish we could paint our apartment, maybe you can do a segment on how to decorate a yucky colorless wall.
