A few weeks ago, my husband and I came to the sudden conclusion that our two small children needed to share a room so that my husband could have a designated office. Before he acquired this much needed room of his own, he shared the loft with me, which is my crafting space. Just so you know, my husband is almost 6' tall and the loft, which has a vaulted ceiling, is only about 5.5' at it's highest point. Needless to say, he bumped his head A LOT. Hence, the need for his own (with proper ceiling height) work space.

So after moving our baby into our toddler's room (while the toddler was at pre-school... you should have seen the look on his face when he came home that day), we set about re-decorating the space to make it Marc's office... or as Luke calls it, "dada's oddice".

This first picture is of the one and only small little decorative moment that occurs in the room.
The nursery for our baby was originally a sky blue and orange. We kept the orange, but changed the blue to a soft grey called Rhino by Behr. All the furniture we already had combining some of the nursery furniture with a desk and floating shelves we already had from Ikea.

And here it is...

Notice in this next picture my small decorative moment on the dresser and my husband's beer koozie collection on the bottom shelf, that he INSISTED needed to be there.

This cedar armoire is now my closet. It's hard to believe that once upon a time, in a different time and life, my clothes could fill an entire walk-in closet...

So there it is, and it is working out GREAT!! My husband loves it. He can go in there, lock the door and get a lot of important work accomplished.
