Two more rooms...I'm on a roll!

I'm trying to update the blog a little more frequently.  The next rooms to show are our office/computer room and school/craft room.  We have the Naples floor-plan so these rooms are immediately when you come in the house (the formal living room and dining room by floor plan).

We didn't have much use for a formal living room and we use the morning-room as our dining area.  So to make these rooms functional for us; we changed them up a little.

And Selections you can see:
Flooring- Base-Initiator carpet, Upgrade-Armstrong Illusions Sedona Cherry Laminate
Oil-rubbed bronze fixtures
Paint Color-Olympic One Weeping Willow

Pic time!!!

This is to the right when you first walk in the house (our Naples is reverse floor plan)

Computer desk and book-shelf area.  We refinished our old computer desk and bought this shelf for $30 and refinished it too!

The book-shelf-some of my favorites on here are the old car-factory part drawers, the Encyclopedia G (cut into a G) and some of the kids favorites at a level they can reach. 

Here you can see the antique pie-case (still waiting for pretty stuff to go inside) and our window-bench area.  My grandparents made the barn in the corner and the kids love playing with the animals inside.

Little window-seat with storage.

Looking into the school/craft room from the computer room.  You can see the old school desks to the right (I played with these as a kid).  They still even have little hand-written things wrote by my cousins and I.

Our school table and china cabinet full of crafting supplies!  I love the little frames with chicken wire and clothes-pins for the kids art work.  You can also see the pantry to the left where there is a walkway into the kitchen.

And here are the rooms from the front of the house!!!
And there you have it:)  Hopefully we will finish the morning room window coverings and I can show that room next!
