Diversions


We have been very busy revamping a spare bedroom into an office.  Stripping out old carpet, repainting the room and getting new furniture.  It sure has been a lot of work, but now I am having fun with a few accessories.  The unit above was actually made a few years ago by my husband.  I added some feet and painted it.


I'm too short to reach the upper shelf in the closet, so I bought a wooden foot stool from the thrift shop to assist me ... and of course I painted it.


I also made and painted a wooden box to hold scrap paper.  It's 5" X 7" and 4" tall.  Just the perfect size for 1/4 sheets of used printer paper.  We always seem to have tons of used printer paper and I write so many notes - I find it makes for great scrap paper.

How fun and beautiful. Every office should come with dots and stripes.
