I am back with another episode in my Home Office Makeover series. In this
video, the hubby and I finish taking all the shelves down and I spackle and
prep the walls for painting! The decluttering is officilally over! #cleaning
#organizing #diy #hoarder #makeover
Your hubby is a hoot! ^_^ great entertainment value – love your DIYing
and love his seeming irreverence during the process…LOL
I would remove the carpet first due to all of the sanding dust and the
grime and dust that is always under an old carpet. If you paint first
you’ll feasibly need to let the walls cure for at least a week
Its getting there so exciting. I would use the carpet to catch the possible
You two are so funny now that is a marriage I would have loved to have. xx
The hubby’s sentimental buckets is exactly why I try to declutter right
after the stage or phase is over so I don’t get super sentimental with an
item that has hung around for far too long. Like my box of stuffed animals
from when I was a child…had I gotten rid of them at 17 or 18 it would’ve
good job sophia,,, it looks so much better and bigger,,BTW your husband is
sooo funny bless your little family my dear,,xoxo
I like the look of crisp white built ins and moldings against blue…very
clean, crisp and bright. Staining would be cozy but it would feel heavy
and closed in, imo. Go ahead and remove the carpeting now Sophia….you
absolutely hate it as you have said, time to say bye bye to it. Why keep
it around to depress you every time you walk in to do more work. You will
be so happy when it is on the curb!! XOXO you are doing a great job.
LOL! I love your kids! I have an eleven year old grandson so I know this
age group!!! They are oblivious to their surroundings when with adults. I
finished doing the organizing today. I cleaned the closet and hall doors
too. I will paint them tomorrow. Only one wall to spackle so I will do it
tomorrow also. I am fighting to keep up aas I just began few days go.I did
the files about a month ago and cleared most of the clutter to our guest
bedroom. I had 5 bags of charcoal unopened in my office!????? What??? weird
stuff I am finding. Loved this video. YOur family rotates around you but
you try to guide them. It is hilarioussss!(slow down so I can catch up~)
Sophia Ive seen in other videos you have an Emmy at your house. when Scott
held up the letter today it has the Emmy logo on it and kinda confirmed
it. What an accomplishment! What did he get it for if you don’t mind me
asking? I’m excited to see how you get the office to be a workable space
for both of you. I need help in that department too. Keep up the great
work! I absolutely LOVE your channel!
Looking forward to seeing the finished project…paint first that way you
can move your husbands desk, but cut up the carpet before you move is so
then you can just pull it up…
Aww Scott has to keep some stuffs… You have cupboard full of Scrapbooking
I forgot to tell you. I am anxious to see what color paint you will use.
You are both SOOO funny! I am watching this at 12.06am and I am laughing so
loud at you both, and that husband of yours….LOL LOL
I also liked the way your hubby loaded your arms up with the boxes from his
Men are seriously like big kids!! I have one just like yours right
Whenever I want to get things done, I start cracking the whip to get my
husband shifted to sort his things out and he always tells me that if I had
a business he would NEVER work for me!
Have to ask, how do you have so much energy all the time??
Love your video’s!!
YAY!! I have been waiting…lol somewhat impatiently. Is it weird that your
office makeover is like Days Of Our Lives for me. Maybe I am losing my mind
but I love watching the process. That, and knowing I am not the only one
going through it.
Husbands are such little boys! I love your family. Oh, and the work that
you’ve done too! ;)
LOL……I thought I was the only one with silly boys and hubby. Why is it
that they seem to act more silly when it is time to do some work around the
house……and they are always content with the way the rooms are and never
want to make any changes. Which makes me think…..why do we always want to
redo things….oh yeah….because at the end of the day we are the ones
cleaning up!! Lol……all kidding aside, I can imagine how tired you are
but your doing a great job. YOU’RE ALMOST THERE!!!
You guys are too cute! Looking good! Anxious for the paint!
I just looked at the Behr color on the internet. They had several other
samples of paint that went well with the color you selected. There was a
very light gray called “River Veil” that might look good for your
bookcases. They also had “Balsam” which is a bright green. Or “Free
Spirit” which is a minty green. I also seen a color called “Honey Mist” a
light yellow that would look very pretty with the blue.
I say the same thing in every video, but I adore your family! You all have
such wonderful personalities! And I knew what William was playing – I love
playing games. LOL
Just paint first…..this way any mistakes can just spill on to the carpet.
Plus, you won’t have to worry about moving your husbands desk. At least for
Great work Sophia! It’s all getting exciting now. Can’t wait for your next
Omg I’m dying! Five minutes in and your husbands trash can of computer
paraphernalia is JUST LIKE MINE. I worked as a motion graphics designer for
broadcast TV. I even have the AC adapter for our mini-DV that has tapes I
haven’t transferred! Ah hahaha. Don’t be harsh on him Sophia!
Loved this vid with you and Scott. You guys are hilarious. I always have
to fill a bin full of computer stuff and drag it right in front of the
hubby to go through. At least Scott is in there helping. Can’t wait to
see the paint. It’s going to be beautiful when you guys get done with it.
I’d keep the carpet on the floor until you’re done painting if you’re going
to rip it out. It’ll protect the floors until you’re done. Wish I had
hard wood under mine, but I’ll have to keep something on it until I can get
the floor redone in there.
We will usually pull or cut the carpet away from the skirting boards so as
they can be glossed, but leave the main area down to catch any drips
(taking shoes off when going out of the room!). You don’t what to damage
the wooden floor underneath – it doesn’t matter how careful a painter you
are, there will always be some that goes where it’s not meant too!! You are
nearly there keep going, don’t worry about the quest room, it will be
sorted out soon. Every single room usually gets affected when you are doing
a project like this. Lorna UK
Whew, I’m tired just watching all the declutter & prep work!
And I thought, before this project, that your staircase makeover was a ton
of work! AndI know it was! Lol
Your attention to details always yields a successful end project!
PROUD OF YOU GIRL!! <3
