Office Makeover Week 5: Casey Makes a Mess

This week is as much an update about my office makeover progress as it is about the patience my partner Chris has for me and these makeover projects. Weeks 4 & 5 always seem to be the time when “Casey makes a big mess” – and he just rolls with it! I send him photos like this while he’s at work and he says nothing:

He just comes home, moves the stuff I’ve inevitably piled all over his desk to a nearby armchair and acts like nothing has happened. Like…I haven’t just created chaos in a room that he already thought was “perfectly fine”. I am not nearly as patient, or forgiving. BUT I did also buy us both brand-spanking-new desk chairs so that helps make things a bit better…right?

BUT my big mess is looking a little more organized and I think I’ve settled on a layout:

I really liked the look of having my desk right next to Chris’ desk, but in real life it was a little too close for comfort. 


Speaking of which (were we? we are now) staining takes F-O-R-E-V-E-R. Especially when you screw up and don’t sand off all the wood filler and end up with a big ‘ole splotchy mess.

Who did that? Me? What? Nooooo. Okay, I did it and now I have to fix it. Womp womp womp. 


Is week 6 really next week? I’ve got a lot to do to make it in time for the reveal next week – wish me luck! Don’t forget to check out all the other Guest Participants and Featured Designers and all their amazing spaces!
