Day 3 – The Great Office Makeover

So far so good. I’m trucking along according to the plan. It hasn’t all been easy, the desk wouldn’t completely come apart and the shelf supports in the closet were attached with nearly 3 inch “nails.” I quotation mark those because they look like a hybrid of a nail and a staple and are freakin’ hard to get out of the wall. It didn’t help that there were an excessive number of these “nails.”

This corner isn’t going anywhere

Because of the “nails” the drywall on the wall got kind of damaged so I’ll have to fix that before painting.


I wouldn’t have called this the sexiest part of the project. I’d better start spicing things up.

Sexy or not, this has actually been quite a bit of work already. Here is where we started at the kickoff of this project.

Here is how it looks this evening.

Frankie does not approve of what I’m doing to his room. Yes, he has always considered this his room and the futon his bed. I may actually be making over a dog’s room.
