Here's What Happens When. . .

Here's what happens when you have a dad who watches Home & Garden Television! Recently he added several rooms to his house, and one was this: his new office. Windows face the waters of the Puget Sound and the morning sunshine streams in. Since dad is an amateur radio operator, a wealth of outlets is required for all his ham radio and computer gear. The ceiling is a dark blue with spotlights placed strategically. Crown molding will encircle the area between the blue and white of the ceiling and he has plans to put rope lighting under it's crest. The walls are white with a blue base. Note that the lower section is striped, an effect created by taping off the wall and painting with two different types of paint. It's all been done by dad --- from framing to electrical and the decor --- and it's a beautiful and serene room. I can hardly wait until it's all done and he's moved in his office furniture and art. I know he'll enjoy his time there!


  1. Wow!! That's quite a room!! I loved seeing your dad and his project.
    I miss my own dad so much; he was quite the handyman too......
    Thank you sharing this about your dad; I know he'll enjoy his room! :)

  2. What a wonderful radio room! I think your dad did great! It going to be a wonderful retreat for him.
