The One Where They Finish the Office

A few weeks ago you would have thought you entered a messie’s room when you came into what was supposed to become our office.When my American twin and her family came to visit, we at least managed to haul up the heavy armoire to the guest bedroom but that is really as far as we had gotten to date – regarding the office.

Now it was time to find a home for the countless folders and lose papers and the homeless workstations rotting in the basement.

So this is how it started out (a contenter for “Das Messie Haus” or “Hoarders”")

We stored all of our tools in there and all the things that had not yet found a place where just thrown in.

Well the one and only hubby took two hours to clean out the office one day, when I was off lunching with the girls. And when I got back, I came home to this

A remarkable difference and no more hoarding or messiness.

On to the paint job.

Luckily we still had the Expedit shelves from the old apartment sitting in the basement. They’ll be making a nice new home for our paperwork and files.
