~Mr. AGPMAN'S OFFICE~
One of the side projects my hubby and I tackled this summer was a mini makeover for his home office. Once the dining room of our 1960's era home, unless you were wise to the original floor plan of the house you would never know the area was once a gathering place for special meals and entertaining.
~POCKET DOOR on RIGHT/OFFICE SIDE~
As we continue to work on remodeling our kitchen the office couldn't help but be affected by all the changes. The office is now accessible from both the front door entryway (office door barely seen on the left in the top photo). A new pocket door, just to the right of his leather sofa, makes for an easy entry into the kitchen.
~KITCHEN SIDE POCKET DOOR~
Here's the view of the pocket door from the kitchen side. This was taken a few weeks ago.
~LOTS OF PHOTOS~
We decided to wainscot the office walls, repaint and re-decorate just a bit. Because we are on a strict budget (and because I hate wasting money!) I opted to shop second hand and thrift stores for old frames to create the collage of memories.
~PAINTED FRAMES in BLACK~
For only $20 I purchased almost all the frames you see as well as the spray paint to paint them all in soft satin black. Love the cohesiveness of the frames all painted with the same color. The different shapes and sizes add interest and the painted mats add a little texture. I printed off some of our favorite photos in black and white and I pretty much love how they all look except the large oval on the far left. It's out of spec with the other frames, but for now it's staying put!
~A FAMILY IN THE MAKING~
My favorite finds in the office include the century old GLOBE File Cabinet I scored early this past spring at Goodwill. A couple of weeks ago I purchased the vintage Remington Typewriter at an estate sale. Scored BIG on both purchases!
I'll share the remainder of my Mr. AGPMan's office with you once he gives me the go-ahead. Presently he's working on installing the flat-screen TV of his dreams on the wall behind his desk... Looks amazing! All the wires are hidden because the other side of the wall is the garage! How wonderful is that? Watching football this Fall is going to be fabulous!
You only thought my house was all white...
Hope your weekend is wonderful!
Love to you...
