The office a work in progress

The office still has many things to come but so far it has two key pieces that I love.
I found them in a local store new made to look old. Both of them are really meant to be used for something else but I really thought the would work well in our office.

Next up is to buy some filing cabinets. So hard to find wood filing cabinets that are old looking.
I have a plan just need to put my mind to it.

Pics Feb 1

Finally got the chandelier hung just in time for Christmas

I already had the metal Indian cutout but thought it needed something more so I found someone to make me the buffalo and now it just looks more finished

Still undecided on what picture to hang above the fireplace but for now it is a painting of my dad.

Planning on changing out the coffee table for something more rectangle. I don't like how this one gets lost in front of the big couch. Also still not happy with the area rug in this room. But there was a rush to get things done before all the family arrived for Christmas.

I have ordered custom curtains for the patio doors. Hopefully to arrive soon.
It will help finish off this space and hopefully deaden some of the sound.

That's it for the main room.

Sept. 15 beams and front door

Hi All,
The end is in site. Thanks goodness. Things are getting a little tense in the old fifth wheel. The weather has been cold and rainy not giving us much to do except sit around and get on each other nerves. The front door was installed today and it is so pretty. Unfortunately you will not get to see it fully because it is covered with plastic to protect it from the workers. The beams have all been stained as well. All the stain basically matches the kitchen cabinets as well. All the wood is Knotty Alder. The walls are not painted yet but all the trim has been painted. Painting is next and then the floors will be installed first the tile and then the hardwood.
