Office Makeover

Welcome to 2012 everybody! I am really loving the start of this year so far! I’ve begun with some good, simple routines for a healthy, happy year… and a clean house! Speaking of cleaning, I thought I would show you guys our office project that took place over the last year. This is where I make it all happen at J.Grace Photography, so I thought you might enjoy a look!

A year ago my office looked like this. Disaster, no?

And now, now it looks like this:

<sigh of contentment>

While it is not totally done yet, its definitely happier in there. A goal for this year is to add a screen on the wall and more seating so that I can have all of you, my lovely clients, in to view your photos, big and beautiful, and consult about how and you’d like to display your lovely photos in your home.  The shelf above my computer usually contains one more white photo frame, but it was, for the Christmas season, taking up residence on my mantle downstairs to display this subway art.

This frame contains a little something I whipped up one day on the computer.


The photo on the left is some art I made! It’s been in the hopper for awhile to make a blog debut. I thought about giving it its own DIY crafty post, but this will have to do for now. Basically, I took some old fence boards (we got a new fence this fall), had the hubs cut them to my specifications, and glued them on another piece of random board we had laying around. The backer board is about an inch thick, which is nice, because it gives the piece the look of standing off the wall a bit. I glued the boards on with wood glue and then clamped them. Then came the part that took the longest. I was going to stencil the words, but when I couldn’t find a stencil of my liking, I printed out an alphabet of a font I liked and then freehanded the letters while looking at the font. I used some white craft paint that I watered down a bit so that the paint seeped in to the wood a bit and didn’t look so stark.


Thanks for stopping by and viewing the office. Next you should drop me a comment or an email and tell me what you would love for me to photograph with you this year!
