He took out the *credenza we had in the office/spare room, cutting it down to a much smaller size. Did some adjustments with that , as well as refinishing it in a Minwax dark walnut stain and covering that with a Minwax polyurethane.The he also reduced the size of the bulletin board and made it smaller as well, and built a shelf above the new desk/work area.
I think he did a wonderful job! Having him re-do the closet doors now in that room as they were white and yellowing, so he has to sand them and re-paint but going with a lighter brown to match or closely match the walls in that room.
* Credenza he originally got from his work as they were throwing it away and buying new furniture for the offices there.
