The ugly duckling

Also known as our office.  I posted blogs showing the rest of the trailer from start to finish, but our office was ugly.  It served it's purpose, but it didn't look good doin it. 
 I hastily took this picture when I was moving in to show my husband where I'd put things (or was in the process of putting them considering there is still stuff all over, including the handy drill).  This, was clearly our wall of movies.  As you all know by now, my husband is a media hoarder.  It's his job and his obsession and it keeps growing.  Thus the need for ugly bookcase, well, moviecase.  
I, on the otherhand, hoard books.  My textbooks and references are mostly hidden in this little guy cabinet.  I hate it, and it will soon be replaced also, but that's not the point of my little post today.  Like I said, our office serves a purpose for us, it holds all of Zac's movies, my books and my adjusting table for my family.  The only problem was, it was full and Zac started stashing movies with my books and we simply needed more storage.  So....after a long week away on family vacation (which I will eventually blog about) we decided to build more shelves.  

We kept this guy mostly the same, but added trim and facing on all the shelves to make it look a little more finished.    
(and yes, I know, the amount of movies we own is beyond ridiculous)

We then built a matching, but narrower cabinet for the otherside.  After that was just a matter of building and installing 3 shelves in the middle to hold a few extra things, we painted it all, and done!  Now our office looks a whole lot better.  

And, I have have room for my table.  Now I just have to figure out what to do with the next degree I earn :)
