Our 1970's House Makeover Part 9: The Office Makeover

Hey ya'll! If you've been following along lately, you know I've been spending most of my free time* finishing the office. And I finally feel like it's decent enough to share. Kinda.
*Free time = that one weekend in August when I wasn't traveling to visit family/friends or traveling with Jesse for his work. For those of you who've been curious, Jesse is part of a media startup and the more it's grown, the more frequently he travels. And I go with him because it's just a great opportunity to spend time together, travel, read books (a passion I totally forget I have unless I'm stranded in a car), stay in a comfy hotel room, and eat multiple breakfasts at Cracker Barrel. 
Plus, I just kinda hate being home alone, which I fully blame on Macauley Culkin, circa 1990.

How To Make Gold Leaf Art (Round Two)!

Hey ya'll! 
I just got back from Michigan on Tuesday (more on that later), and I was finally able to put the finishing touches on a little art project I've been working on.

This isn't my first attempt at gold leaf art (you might remember this one or this one), but I really wanted to make a larger piece with some hints of pink and purple for the office.

How To Paint Furniture the Easy Way!

Hey ya'll! So, I've been traveling around like a crazy person all summer long. I've been home about three out of eight weekends, and my projects have totally taken a backseat. I have a very obvious pattern that repeats itself each year: I see ALL the people and do ALL the things all summer long, and then every winter I hermit myself until the sun comes back out...leaving me plenty of time to do all the things I avoided all summer.
So, we're not freaking out about the summer slump. Lassie WILL come home. Eventually.
