ECU room re-do!

Last night my brother-in-law (Mr. ECU) came over to my house and took dibs on the new china cabinet I purchased on C-list.  I hesitantly surrendered it to him for his home office and after shedding a few tears (I looooved this cabinet) decided exactly what I wanted to do with it.  Mr. ECU definitely wanted the cabinet to hold his TV and the drawers and cabinets to be used for storage (something greatly lacking in the office).  We decided to take off the upper glass doors and the frame that held them up to so you could see the Pirate purple shelves. I painted the outside black and added purple detailing and the inside is PURRRRRPLE!  I also took his current coffee table and painted it purple and black.

Mrs. ECU and I took over and completely redecorated this room and made their space a place where Mrs. ECU can have quiet time and Mr. ECU can work without clutter.  Y'all, I cannot believe we didn't get a before of this office.  This was sooooooo much fun!

This is the before picture of the china cabinet.  Did I mention how beautiful this would have been in my house painted white with light blue on the inside?!?!?

These are the after pictures of the room!!!!

  3. I have been following Miss Mustard Seed for a year and was intrigued when I came upon all your purple...maybe because I am a Pirate fan as well...needless to say I will check back in with you regularly. I just started a blog myself. Great job from one Pirate fan to another!
