One of the MUST haves of our new home, was a functional office since I work from home! But 10 months into living in the house, the “Office” was my workplace… as well as the storage room, the “I’ll get to it later” room and the “just put it in there” room.

Can’t say we “love” the unexpected surprises and process of updating … Continue reading Another Day, Another Project!
