Office Space Mood Board

We'll have a small office nook upstairs, and here's my vision for it.

Would love to diy a parson's desk, not sure about the color yet but maybe something bright.

We'll be painting the area the same color as the entertainment room, but love the blue feather wallpaper. Could use wallpaper or fabric to cover a canvas to make a pinboard.

I have always loved the filing cabinet covered in wallpaper. Seems easy enough to do.

Lastly, some kind of industrial seating and lighting.

Throw in some pencil cups for a pop of color and there you have it. We won't need much in this tiny space.

Drywall: check.

And we're ready for plaster people. It's all taped up and ready for the guys to get to work. Dave decided not to do the plaster himself. Smart man. He deserves a break anyway. They were supposed to plaster today but with the 90 deg temps and humidity the plaster won't set.

Looking into the entertainment room
Our little office area
Looking into the bedroom
walk in closet (yay!!)
bedroom (sorry bad lighting.:-/
We kept the crawl spaces to store Christmas stuff and tupperwear bins of crap that we don't know where to put.

Then on to paint colors. Have a bunch of paint swatches from Benjamin Moore. Leaning towards gray of course. Just not sure which room should be the darker room, the bedroom or the entertainment room.
Rockport gray is a mocha-gray.
Vale-mist is lighter.

Ok, looks boring now that I look at the colors together. I'm scared of putting color on the wall and hating it and having to repaint. We're not the, oh I don't really like this color anymore, let's repaint it type. Once it's painted that's it! Who enjoys painting?

You think you're hot...

Dave has been insulating the second floor, aka attic, in 90 temps.

He just started dry walling, which is not an easy feat by yourself.

Time to start looking at paint colors. The drywall is the same color as our kitchen, maybe we should just forgo the plastering and leave it exposed. That would save some time and moolah.
