When you walk through the front door of our house, the first room on the left was very empty and very boring.
We decided to make it Dave's office, which meant that the first item on the to do list was to paint it a "legal color."
Recently, we started to furnish it. Dave really wanted cherry wood to go with his merlot walls, so we found a couple of small tables at some antique stores. We found a particleboard desk on Amazon for like $200...hey, it looks like cherry wood and that's close enough! Real cherry wood probably would have tacked a zero onto that price.
My favorite feature in the new room are these brass scales of justice that we found at a flea market.
The room still needs a lot of work. Since it's near the front door, it echoes a lot of noises from the dog
terrorizing greeting everyone who comes to our door. An area rug would be nice. Also, we'd like to create built in bookshelves along the long wall. We had someone come out for an estimate, but they suggested it would cost about $7K to do it their way sooo now we're investigating DIY Ikea options on Pinterest. I don't care how we get it done as long as it has a sliding ladder.
Does anyone else share the ladder obsession with me?
