Office Before and After

Hello Bloggy Friends. Today, I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Met Monday.
Please hop on over there for more fabulous "Before and Afters"

Here's how the office looked when I bought the house in Feb. 2009.

Here's how it looked after I painted the walls and moved my stuff in. And before I got my new, Wireless computer.

Here's my desk top now with NO WIRES and no speakers. Wireless keyboard and mouse, too.
Love it!

I added a few Fall touches for the season. :)

My printer used to be on the floor along with all those other ugly wires.

Now the printer fits nicely behind the cabinet drawers, and I only have one cord to deal with.

I still have more to do in here. I want to add a rug and also add some more things on the wall.
Pssst........................see that picture behind the desk..........................

Look closer. When I saw this picture, I fell in love and knew I wanted my office to look like that....

I bought the oak desk from my friend, Lisa. She also had given me the lamp, and I added the lace curtain.

I found this similar bird cage at my favorite flea market, but so far have not found a stand for it.
Also, I LOVE the book case in the picture, but they are WAY out of my price range, so I'm going to have to come up with something else. :)

Hey! I caught two little munchkins on the puter! heheheheheh

Thanks for stopping in, friends. I love it when you do.
I'm also joining Marty at "A Stroll Thru Life" for her fun Tabletop Tuesday party.

WoW. . .
I'd say you're on your way to achieving your heart's desire in your home office! Little~by~little it will all come together. I check tag sales, classified ads and local estate sales. One just never knows what might be available and the price is sometimes negotiable.
Happy hunting!

Be a sweetie,

I love your inspiration picture and your room is matching it perfect! A wireless computer, I had no idea that was possible! Will need to look into that!
Your header photo is just beautiful, it really captures Fall :)
