Before/After

Over the holidays, someone silly (me) thought it might be a good idea to paint my office floor.  With only hazy-slash-repressed memories of our renovation nightmare, I figured it might be nice to start the year feeling fresh.  But obviously I'd forgotten the meaning of "disruptive."  As in, "you will want to rip the hair from your scalp."  Told myself, it only takes a couple hours to paint!  It's so easy!  Little did I know.

And you know what they say about paint drying.  It's totally true.

Here is my office during the move-back-in madness.  Thinking it's time to make good on that resolution to de-clutter.

And here is where I managed to create some semblance of order.  Notice that half the room is not in this shot.  It's no accident, believe me.
