Computer "Room" Makeover

before
after

Our computer "room" is actually the closet underneath our stairway, this really works out well because the "room" is in the great room and we can keep a close eye on the children when they are online. However, being the pack rat that I am it tends to get a little messy (thank goodness for the door)! This was by far the hardest space that I painted during my makeover, I ripped out the nasty, stained carpet added the peel and stick parquet tiles, new trim and a new chair to give this little space a fresh new look. I really like how it turned out, now if I can only keep it tidy, wish me luck on that one, LOL!!
I have been a scrapbooking fool lately, I'm trying to complete three albums for my brothers by Sunday! Yes, I'm crazy but they are looking so good and it really isn't that hard to do three of everything when you are doing exactly the same design. I'll post pictures when I've finished.
We are celebrating Christmas with my family this weekend because my youngest brother leaves for Iraq in three weeks, please keep him & his family in your prayers. The last tour that he served he wasn't married and didn't have any children, this time he is leaving a wife, 5 year old son, two year old daughter and 4 month old daughter behind. It's going to be really hard on my SIL she is going to stay in Kansas with the children instead of coming home, so please say an extra prayer for her.
Take care and have a great day!!

What a great use of space, that is my kind of room!!!
I will be in prayer for your family as one of you all leave for Iraq-I pray God keeps His hand on him, and he is surrounded by protective angels-
