Office Facelift

Since there is so much work going on in our house, why not do a project ourselves?

Dr. C's office is pretty dated. It's been these colors for quite a few years. It has had things done to it over the years like carpet, or reupholstered chairs and tables, but those have all stuck with the same color scheme. Dr. C is ready to make this place more current. Here are some pictures of different rooms in the office...

The waiting area:

Remember when verticals were so new and exciting?

The hall way:

Lots of oak. It's a good solid workable wood, but dated.

Therapy room:

And wall paper everywhere! Remember back in the day, going to a wall paper store and seeing rolls and rolls of wallpaper in shelves that lined the isles? There was so much to choose from.

When Dr. C and I took down the wall paper, it came off in sheets and I rolled them up just like when they were bought. It took me back to those days shopping for wall paper for my room when I was a kid.

This is what I pictured as I was rolling up the old paper:

We updated the massage room and Dr. C's office space as a start. Here are some pictures of what we have done:

It looks like someone stacked extra candles on the shelves, that looks funny. We will have to take care of that. But over the room is dimly lit an filled with soft colors. Its a place to relax, so we wanted it to have a relaxing feel. It's hard to get good pictures in the dim light with my phone which is all I had on me this day.

Now for our latest update. It only took us 2 days to remove the wall paper, paint and put all the furniture back. We also changed out a few decorative items and Craig would like to update the oak with a more modern stain.

Dr. C didn't want just simple solid walls, he wanted to give them some interest. Stripes are easy and add a lot of visual interest, but lots of stripes was too much for a small office. It also seemed more like a kids room. Maybe that's because our son has stripes on his wall.

The one stripe was enough, so he wanted to add a color that went well with his new decorations.

I love the way it turned out. Totally his style and it looks very professional. Opposite his desk is where the patients sit.

If you haven't been by the office in a while, you should drop by and take a look. Better yet, schedule an appointment with Dr. C and you can spend some time in this lovely office.

Stay tuned for the waiting area to be made over.
