put a bird on it

jesse’s office was looking pretty sad at work, so of course he let me come in there and help him out with some things.  i wish i would have gotten some “before” pictures to show, but unfortunately we forgot to do that.  but seriously, the room contained a desk and pretty much nothing else, so you’re not missing much.

i took these pics after we brought in all the office furniture and moved his desk to the other side of the room.

we found an awesome futon on craigslist and added it to the room, and we brought in the shelving units and end table from an unused office in the building.  bam.

we put together some acoustic panel looking things (think: minister of worship) and hung them up on a few of the walls.  on the accented wall, we couldn’t think of anything better to do than — that’s right — put a bird on it.  …or birdS, i suppose.  on another wall we hung the three music albums that the worship team put together (check them out here) as well as some corkboard to make things look office like.  the wall opposite the desk features this cool guitar wall piece (what do you call it, becca?) that his cousin made for him.

to complete things, i got some cool knickknacky things at goodwill that i spray-painted and found some candles, fake grass stuff, and three coat hanger things from hobby lobby.  done.

no.  we’re not done, actually.  there are two blank walls yet.  we’ve got something stirring in our minds, but it’s going to take a while to complete, so…. more later!
