Coolest Kid on the Block

I know you all have been holding your collective breath to see the "after" pictures of my office. Before I get into the pictures, I just have to say how amazing my friend Jes is. You know your true friends when they give of their time and themselves without anything in return. First of all we spent about 5 hours on Saturday painting the circles. Tonight she came over to my office after she got off work and we worked for about 2 hours assembling, repainting, placing, drilling, measuring, and cleaning. (All while we were hungry! Didn't think ahead about dinner!oops! Thanks to Jonathan for having a yummy dinner ready for me when I got home!)

Everyone should have a friend like Jes! I'm pretty sure that everyone else in my office will want to hire her once they see my office:) I love that my office is so modern and "cool". I'm gonna feel like the "cool kid" and I love it! I felt like I could take some fun "risks" in my office that I couldn't really do in my house, so it doesn't feel like "me"... but on the other hand it does. Does that even make sense? Can I use any more "parentheses" in one paragraph?? I think not! :)

Here is the view from the doorway. I wish I could get the true color of green to show in these pictures. Try to envision a really really bright green! (If you want to see the correct color, go to Southland's website and look at the green in the logo. That is the color of the walls.) Here is the wall with all of our hard work! (Yes, the lantern lamp was not on because I need an extension cord and I went to the store on lunch to get one and totally forgot it till I walked back into my office!)

This is the view from inside my office to my other wall. Jes gave me this mirror from Ikea. She had it in her room when we lived together and wasn't using it now so she gave it to me! I think it's perfect and I love with the way that the circles reflect in the mirrors!

Here are some other views.

OK, seriously does this look like a church finance office? No? Okay good! :) I don't want to look boring. Jes said once people see my office they will want me to be on the creative team instead of the finance team... Well, lets just say that if they were to do that they would be sorely mistaken. HA! I will happily give them Jes' name and number because she won't disappoint:)

Very cool! And who would've thought all that nasty banking and teller and customer service junk would all come to good use! Congrats on your job.

That is amazing. I get to really enjoy it since I can picture you there daily now! Reminds me of all the neat decorations you and Jess came up with at your apartment and house. How fun for you to work together again. Tell Jess I said hi!

I read your comment about owning a pfaff and you being near a pfaff dealership. I was wondering if you would ask them if they would fix a pfaff if I sent them one. We are military and my pfaff isn't working and I need to get it fixed. I am not sure what to do with it. IF you don't mind asking the next time you were in the store I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks, Dawn
