The 1st photo was taken to show the completion of a mission101 task from a couple of years ago, so doesn't actually show the office terrifically, but it does show the carpet and the paneling that came with this house that I've wanted removed since the day we moved in, which was accomplished in the 2nd photo.

and by the 3rd photo we have a sort of...semi-nearly done...but not-quite-completely-completed workroom for me. The wall you can't see is the color of the floor, all the rest are just a shade lighter than the gray of the furniture. Soon, there will be a twin bed against the floor-coloredwall and then, the room willl be more complete and then soon thereafter, there will be an organizing unit in the now totally empty closet making the room entirely complete.

This took sooooooooooo much longer than it should have...geez!!
