Here is a sneak peek of my office during its pre-almost-final stages. I know showing you this photo kind of wrecks the surprise, but I decided not to go with a huge grand reveal after a lot of hush-hushiness because that might get your expectations too high.

And I can’t bear the pressure of high expectations.

And here is a pile of stash I still gotta work into the design.

Work into the design I say, like I’m some kind of professional or something. Like I had created an idea board ahead of time or something. Like I hadn’t scrounged my stash of wedding presents and yard-sale castoffs for something—anything—halfway decent to hang on the walls.

Like I had any clue what I was doing.

    Is that a giant bomb or a giant white apple on the file drawers? Either way, giant things are neat so I like it.

    You talk like one of those professionals on HGTV. Good luck with the rest of the remodel!

    My favorite rooms are the ones that evolve from stuff that you find. Too much planning is just a guarantee for disappointment.

    Wow that is a very large apple.
