Miles's new room & my new office (pic heavy)

Here's some pics of my work this weekend. Didn't think to take before pics.

My office was the "nursery" that Miles never slept in (hence the colors - I didn't paint).

From the door:
P1020694
(the other door opens into the master bedroom)

My desk from the other direction (bought and put together the filing cabinet)
P1020696
(The pictures are in odd places because I just used the holes that were already there).

Looking straight when you walk in the door. Obvously the bed will go eventually and I'll probably find stuff to put on the bookshelf - like I said, I think I bought too much storage so closets are full but nothing on shelves now, lol.
P1020695

Oh, and hanging above the bookshelf is my super tacky Royal Wedding dish towel, lol - really it's just there to hide some brackets on the wall.

Miles room:
I'm super proud of this one!!
Looking straight in from the door (found the stars on clearance at Target. Also have shelves that I was going to put across the wall under the stars but I don't think I need them quite yet and I needed another pair of eyes (at least) to hang them.
P1020697

Found the clouds on clearance, too and was super excited since Miles has told me several times that he wants clouds on his wall like Andy (from Toy story)
P1020698

The bookshelf was my other big Ikea purchase.
P1020699

And the last part of the room (even though it's a bad picture). So, the ugly driftwood lamp on the floor (family heirloom, lol) was just supposed to be there temporarily because I didn't have any other light in there. Well, I asked G to help me secure the wardrobe to the wall and he left the lamp plugged in (with a timer) and I can't get to it to get it out! So I'm not sure about the lamp right now.
P1020700

I obviously didn't swtich blinds either (so there's a lot of light coming in). I did get curtains, too but they're pretty sheer and I don't think they'll add much darkening so I'm stll not sure about windows.

I consider it a successful weekend though! Thanks for baring with me all weekend!
