Our lobby

This lobby has been on our project list since before I started at IWU. We have talked and talked about what we wanted and who was going to do it and I finally did something about it.

Our lobby was seriously at it's worst right before everything came in that we ordered for the space. This is what everyone saw as soon as they entered our office.

The random tree in the corner is actually from when the women's bathroom got redone a few years back. Somehow it ended up in our office.

We ordered stuff from Ikea, Target, Crate & Barrel, and Pottery Barn and were so excited when it all came in!

We found a gumball machine in storage that isn't used very often and got to move it in to our space.

It took a few weeks for most of the stuff to come in. I had to go all the way to Ikea last time I was visiting Adam because Ikea shipping is ridiculous!

We needed to add dimension to the room so we put together a shelf today.

We still need to add the frames and shelfs over the couch but it's almost done ;) It's very exciting ;)

Looks like so much fun! Don't forget Overstock.com.... they're a great resource and their shipping is $2.95 flat rate. I ordered rugs and a table and paid $3 shipping. Can't complain about that. :)
