Office remodel, phase 1

Sorting books

Which was actually a much-needed nudge, since I ended up with a lot of books to discard once I pulled everything off the shelves.

Here's phase two --- shelves removed and only the items I use at least once a month returned to the office zone. Mark has promised to build me a storage futon to continue the renovation into the left side of the photo above, and I'm pondering that big bare wall on the right with its ancient floral wallpaper. Am I really to the point in my homesteading adventure where I'm considering adding a coat of paint?

I hope you "discarded" the books by giving them to your local library.
