This is how the office began, and roughly how it stayed for almost a year. Then we decided to paint all the rooms upstairs.
At this point, it was still the guest room. By “guest room” I mean a futon, a couple dressers with our extra clothes and electronics, and the elliptical.
I took only two pictures at this stage, but it stayed like this for a year or so. It was functional, but not excellent. Once we got rid of the elliptical, we moved the desk to where it was and moved in a chair that hand been floating from room to room downstairs. We added more bookshelves, floor lamps, curtains, and wall art for the final look.
Even though the layout changed a lot, the only real renovating in this room was paint!
