Continuing from the Office Closet Storage Post, the entire room had to be re-arranged.
This is how it looked empty and moving in.
I don’t have a before photo of the re-arranging but you can see that the bed is where the chaise was and Robert’s desk is on the left.
You can see how full and packed it was.
We found out we were getting a renter as we were finishing up the closet.
So I knew we had to change the room around because it was just so crowded.
I also knew for a while that I was going to have to sell my wonderful desk. 😦 It was just too big for the condo and I knew that I needed to get a smaller desk.
I bought the large desk for $550 (including tax etc.) and I sold it for $300. Which is about half, but since we were going to have a renter we would more than make up what I bought it for.
I bought this smaller desk a few weeks ago for $50.
The legs were a bit wobbly but I thought I would be able to glue it or something.
Fun story, I finally put it together a week after I got it (since we were re-arranging it was easier to leave it taken down), and I hated it…
It’s really pretty. It just isn’t for me. So I sold it for $40. Which is $10 less than I got it for but it was worth it for the experience.
It’s actually for the better right now since we have a renter for the next 1-4 months and it gives more room in the office/guest room.
Here is what it looks like now.
We have gotten rid of some books, completely re-arranged the room, bought a dresser, (soon a mirror and a clothes hanger), and new bedding.
I was searching high and low (I went to 12 thrift stores in 2 days) for a duvet cover of any size I could cut down. (Post coming soon).
Also, the dresser post coming soon as well.
