After weeks of this room being the "holding place" for boxes and things in transition, we've finally pulled it all together. The office - which is the 3rd bedroom in our house (I think some people thought we only had a 2 bedroom home) - is actually an office / craft room / guest room / den.
Besides the kitchen and bathroom, this room had the most work and biggest transformation. Here is the before.
Why yes you are correct - that is TWO different types of paneling in the room originally. I had to beg Paulo not to demolish it - I thought it was unique and made a statement. NOT!!! When we pulled all that off (by we I mean Paulo of course), there was wall paper underneath. I stripped/peeled the paper (see, I did do some work here!). Then we had the walls skim coated and painted.
Here is the cozy room now.
