About Me

My photo
I live in the beautiful city of Portland, Oregon. I am a work at home mom and meeting planner, who loves what I do in every way. I think I get the best of both worlds; a little travel and some home time with my little chicklets. In my spare time I enjoy hosting parties, art, cooking, crafting, re-doing furniture, wogging, tennis and shopping. I am going through a journey that I wanted to share. I hope in some small way it helps you.

Small Office-Big Decor

My husband Ben recently got a new job!  He works downtown and they gave him his own office.  It needed a little pick-me up in a bad way.  And it was pretty much a blank slate, which makes me happy!

So off I went to Home Decor, Marshalls and Craigslist.  I love a good reason to shop!  Here are the after pics...

He needed some better lights in a huge way.  Every knows those translucent lights can suck the life out of you.  The picture on the back wall is actually from Ikea, awesome deal.  He evaluates commercial buildings so the NYC sky scape works well for him.  The art on the rights is something I put together from some old fence wood.  I put three together and painted a flag on the wood.  I got the wood on craigslist.  You could actually paint anything you want on the wood. 

I just love the old wood, isn't it yummy!
