My office rennovation project went very well, and today for the first day I tested it out by working from home. I have identified a few minor modifications required, but I'm still absolutely thrilled with how it came out.

Here I have FINALLY posted some pictures, so everyone can be as amazed by the new look as I am (these were taken a couple weeks ago, it's slightly different now but not very - primarily, I have added a couple more computers). We did one "highlight" wall with a rich orange color, and left the other walls as-is. (this may change soonish) We bought nice dark furniture from Ikea and got rid of a whole bunch of junk and extra desks. I think it looks lovely! I really enjoyed working there today.

Check out the Scary Before Picture. Seriously, we could have gone on TV with this makeover!

I would invest in a better chair since you are going to be sitting in it alot more.

A new chair would be a business expense too.

Maybe an Aeron

Nice, you might see that the desk is too high to typing on your laptop.

Looks really pleasant. And I also love the orange wall.

You are right, this is an HGTV-worthy makeover! LOVE the orange impact wall. And the cozy seat in the corner by the window is a great idea. Happy working from home-

Very nice! Do you contract out your decoration skills?

I agree with the chair thing. Before it was fine, but now it looks weird. One more thing for the list for Phase II!

Your renovation deserves a Rennie-ovation.

yes, I know, I'll crawl under a rock now.

Wow! Love the whole look and that orange wall... Yummmmm!

Very nice!

Only one recommendation. You need three heated cat beds and maybe some additional heat lamps. That's the best way to keep the kitties from walking over the keyboards while you're working from home.

Trust me...I know. :)
