UPGRADES (& DOWNGRADES) IN THE OFFICE

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen me mention my love for this dining table at World Market that would make a killer desk.. There are so many things I loved about it. The iron legs, real-wood plank table top, the depth and, of course, the fact it was marked down from $329 to $260. It was THE desk I’ve been looking for.

SEAL VS. DARK GRANITE

This weekend, we’re painting… again. When we spent 2 entire weeks painting every room in the house before we moved in. At that point, we were in love with the colors, and thought we’d be in love with them forever. Well, apparently “forever” for paint is about a year. We’re changing it up this weekend in Greg’s office. Before I get to all of that, let me back up a second. Here’s what Greg’s office is looking like these days……
