Half way through July already???

I can't believe how time goes by so fast. Life is crazy! Jared and I have been busy doing all kinds of things this summer. From the chaos of everyday life to camping up at Bear Lake, getting in shape and running 5K's.
Its also that time of year again to start some small projects with the house. I decided that my office was a little too dark and dreary and needed some lightening up
a bit. I don't think we posted any pictures but we remodeled one of the bedrooms into an office in October last year. We painted it a deep reddish purple color, added new baseboards, ceiling fan and a few decorations. I loved it but lately it seemed a little too dark so the past two weeks we have added bead-board/wainscoting half way up the walls and a large mirror. I think it looks pretty good. I want to add some family pictures in the room as well but that will have to wait for when I'm skinny again :)

Please note that the horrid orange carpet was replaced before we moved in!!

Wow that is really nice! It is amazing how much the wainscoating lightens up the space! Great job!
