Closet Office Space

My spring/summer home improvement project this year is to turn the walk-in closet in our extra bedroom (Lucy lives there now) into a home office. Right now I basically work on the kitchen bar, the couch or bed. I figure this could be a great little space for just me, so I'm gonna make it pink and really girly!
Here's an inspiration/idea board I put together that I thought I'd share with you all. I managed to put this together for under $200.00 and everything is available online. I'm thinking of painting the walls a soft pink as well (Where else can I have pink walls with two boys in the house????) I have shelves in there already, so that would provide additional areas for storage. Now, I've just got to find something to do with the junk currently filling the space (yard sale anyone?)

On another note, Lucy the puppy is doing much better - thanks to everyone for your comments and suggestions - they really helped. I think hubs is tired of me saying, "well, one of my blog friends said..." We've been trying to walk her longer in the evenings and she seems to be settling down a little. She's actually at the vet today getting her little girl surgery, aww....poor puppy....

  7. You should blog your process of the re-purposing! Before and afters and in-progress would be fun to watch from beginning to end! (I would never in ONE MILLION years post a picture of my closet, though, too embarassing!)

  19. Hey great post. Helped me a lot in my thinking of whether I should get a virtual office. I think it’s a much cheaper alternative for this moment of time.

Madder than a Wet Hen

Sunday afternoon, I went to the grocery store, came home, left the car unlocked for hubs to get the groceries out (hey, I buy, he puts them up) and I forgot to lock the car back . Monday morning, I get into the car and everything has been pulled out of the glove compartment, middle console and backseat pockets. Unfortunately, the little guy left his Nintendo DS Lite in the back because he was playing it at the yard sale this weekend. It's the only thing of value I left in the car and they got it. It just makes me so mad. Now I feel like an idiot - I haven't reported it to the police yet because I don't want a lecture about locking my car doors at night - I know I'm supposed to, just forgot!!!! Hubs is now obsessed with catching the criminals, sleeping with one eye open at night . I'd heard that the economy has caused more crime, but why did they have to steal from us, from my little guy?

The Power of Prayer

I wanted to update on a previous post about my uncle ( you can read it here ). In September, he was diagnosed with late-stage lung cancer. He has undergone numerous rounds of chemo and radiation and received results back from his latest PET scan this Monday. Of chief concern was the tumor in the lower lobe of the right lung and the lymph nodes in the center of his chest. The scan showed that there was NO cancer activity in the lymph nodes! All in all, it was a great report! My aunt and uncle, with their grandkids. My prayer list is long for friends and family members struggling with disease and lately, I hear of so many children struggling as well. It's so hard not to question God during these times, but to put complete faith in him - which is much easier said than done! Isaiah 40:31 But they that hope in the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall take wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Another wonderful praise that happe

Pretty Women

I think I've seen the movie Pretty Woman about 100 times and it will always be my favorite. My husband thinks it's the cheesiest movie he has ever seen, but hey, he's not the target audience. So, my tour of Rodeo Dr started at the Reg Bev Will (Pretty Woman fans, you know what I'm talking about). Walking through it, the lobby looked so much smaller than in the movie. We ended up at the back entrance, and plopped down on a bench and acted like we owned the place for a bit while watching for anyone famous. We saw numerous $100 thousand+ cars, and one chick with long blonde hair (only from the back) that had to be famous, but we didn't see her face. Then, we walked down Rodeo, into a couple of stores that I couldn't afford to buy a keychain in, tried on a $1,200 pair of shoes, and walked right into a celebrity sighting. One of my goals while in LA was to see someone famous. And, she may not be on the A-list, but it was still pretty cool. Meet the beautiful Cam
