When I got to the church, somehow the walls in the pastor's office had never received the coat of paint that the rest of the office area got, so I'm fairly certain the walls only had primer on them. Maybe it was just really white paint...
Anyway, I picked out a color that I thought would go nicely with the photograph that Kristi Foster took and the staff at First Congo Webster Groves gave me. The photograph is bold, but I chose a color that complimented it in a calm and warm way-- it's called Natural Wheat (but it's kind of pinker than it sounds). A member of the congregation came painted and did a fabulous job.
I also ordered a new desk, because the one that was in there already took up approximately half the office, and I really wanted to have space to meet with people without having to sit at the desk. So, with a new desk and new paint, and some furniture that was already there and some that I borrowed from the Christian Ed rooms, we created an office! Voila!
|There's a built-in closet for my robes and stoles, a whiteboard that I got on clearance at Target, and a bookshelf waiting for more books :)|
|Seating area. Working on getting some pillows or something.|
|Desk, temporary file cabinet, and a chair the size of Manhattan. The top of the desk is glass and then the underside pulls out all the way with little compartments for organizing office stuff.|
|I have a giant picture window! It really just shows the back of someone's garage and the parking lot, but I love the natural light it lets in.|
So that's it! I love it. It's definitely a work in progress, but I like it quite a bit. And as for everything else...it's going great here!
