It's done!

Big sigh of relief...the office is painted.  This was the color I started with, a kinda yellowish white.  The lighting in the office does that color no favors.  Now, a boss owns the building and we share it with Dollar General.  DG may be expanding into our space, in which case we may build a new office.  This would be in 1-2 years so it's not easy to convince my boss to invest any money at all into revamping the office.  This was my first small victory!

It was ugly, plus you could see into the messy records room and I hated it.  It's dark, but you get the idea.
This was the after.  Where that big wreath was is going to be a big piece of artwork.  I haven't decided if I will use a 4ftx6ft abstract that my cousin Jud painted or if I will spend $30 at Hobby Lobby and do it myself.  I've not painted much abstract art. Mostly I paint intentionally wonky folk art and dabble in some cubism.  This will be outside the box for me, but I think I can do it.  If not, I've still got a big ol' canvas to turn into something wonderful.  
Subtle change but good.  Definately for the better.  Please ignore our sad stained carpet.  Unfortunately, there is nothing to be done about it yet.  We really do have to wait to see if we are moving before we invest in flooring.
A proper grouping of licenses and office policies. 

I just bought a curtain for the doorway between those two bookcases.  Somehow I was able to get curtains that were damn near the same color as the wall.  It's just so much cleaner, so much.  I was worried that if we painted then everything else in the office was gonna seem really outdated, but was thrilled that it seems like the opposite had happened.  Things seem newer and I am just so glad.  Hope you like really is subtle, but it's so much better now.
