Office/Library Progress

After poking around for weeks with removing items from the office

and filling up the living room

finding toys I'd totally forgotten about

just in time for this sweetie

hubby and I seriously tackled the task over the weekend.

We aren't getting bogged down sorting anything until we are putting things back into the room.


 Everything was removed from the room including the built-in closet shelves.

The bookcases had to be removed through the window and the desk/bookshelf taken apart in order to even fit through the window.

We tore up the carpet and padding, tossing them out the window, too. But now I have a bazillion staples to remove from the floor.

We left the TV stand/tv plus the two extremely heavy recliners.

Hubby got busy patching & mudding. 

And by mid-Monday he had the ceiling painted!!!

 Then I had a celebratory glass of wine while hubby went golfing. 

Perfect ending to our birthday/Labor Day weekend :)


  1. Wow - what a lot of work you guys got done!

  2. It looks like you were very busy over the weekend. Can't wait to see what color you paint it. -Kristi

  3. It will get done, it will get done! The prep work IMO is the hardest! (And the work I hate the most!)

  4. Good for you guys! It looks like it's coming along! I wish I could loan you my fourteen yr old- I had him take out all the nails and staples after we removed our carpet! I SO love teenage boys! ;)

  5. You've really been busy, Barbara! Hope your library project is going well. It will be so nice to have a cozy, new space to spend time. Happy Autumn days! ♡

  6. Hello I am from Wa. I live in Bothell, what island do you live on? We are battling a ground beaver that has destroyed our back yard this winter. He just will not go away. Several yrs. ago that happened and we had to haul in dirt the backyard was so caved in. Nice pictures thank you
