The Motherscribe office makeover...an unveiling

Waaay back in early July WE took on a major project here at Casa de Motherscribe. It was scary. It was intimidating in its vastness. The feather boa and fishnets were ABSOLUTELY required to get the job done. You may recall that the challenge of taking on this project caused my nostrils to FLARE and my pinkish lips to PURSE. Indeed. There was no succinct way to describe this job. It was called...PROJECT: Annilation & Creative Reconfiguration.


However, there was excitement in the air because...a task that had long been avoided was being tackled. ...

It is only fitting that I show before and after photos so that you may get the ultimate sense of satisfaction and yes, JOY, that I now feel when I sit in here. Although the chairs could be improved...Not all of us have le bottom OH lushness like E. A fanny able to perch, shall we say...for long periods without apparent continual flattening...as is the case for Madam Motherscribe. Alas, it is not to be in this lifetime. Perhaps in my next life my fanny will be not only roundISH, but colorful - as in a BABOON. But, I digress...

Previously...upon entering the Motherscribe office, once your buttocks had stopped clenching rhythmically in horror, THIS is what greeted you...



And let's not forget this... Now you look into the office and see this... And this...
E made the desk above with his own HANDS. Good GOLLY MISS MOLLY...I LOVE those HANDS.

This corner of former bedlam... Has become... a reading nook.This used to be JCK's work area.
Her husband E thought it was his as well. And it was...

Now JCK has her own work space. And E has his...This corner was a mish mash of things.

We now have books organized in sections. This is the theater & film section.

We also have various other sections in our library. We will never be bored...

And so...there you have the...Motherscribe Office REDO...

*********************
Please note that no fishnets were harmed in the making of this project. However the use of "WE" was used irresponsibly. The HE did all the work as the SHE fanned herself continually with her feather boa, barricaded BOY & GIRL from entering, and kept herself upright only with the help of paint fumes.

Kalynne Pudner said...

I am visually impressed. But...do you still smell the cow manure? That's the real test.

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

It's gorgeous. And organized. I love organized.

Lisa Milton said...

I'm so in love with the color.

Post-staging, and house hunting, I am getting myself a red room.

It's dreamy.

ShannanB aka Mommy Bits said...

WOW> The space looks great. Organizing can be such a dreadful "adventure" but it's always worth it in the end.

Can you come to my house now???

Lisa@verybusymomwith4 said...

That looks awesome--and I knew the red would work :)

Cheri @ Blog This Mom! said...

I am pea green with envy!

Your creative energy will be FLOWING like crazy in that environment, if it is possible for it to flow any more than it already flows!

Manager Mom said...

Whoa! I'm not sure which color appeals to me more...the sex-ay red of the office, or the flirty pink of the lips. Both look fab!

mountainmama said...

OMG...excuse me while I revive from a swoon! How gorgeous! Looove the colour, the library, the too-inviting reading nook chair...

Actually, since it's been a while, I'm not sure what I'm more impressed by, the glorious office renovation or the stunning new masthead! My dear, you have absolutely redecorated since I last visited...and I love it.

Love all your work, as always!

Thanks so much for dropping by - I've been otherwise occupied for a while, and it's nice to think I might have been missed... ;)

It's absolutely fabulous. Actually I was jealous of it even in the before state. A whole room dedicated to all things office? And now? I am drooling on my keyboard. Time for a room addition.
