My wife designed the vast majority of my new home office and I did all the work. She named it "David's Island Paradise"

A few before shots -





I took out the closet and made it into a bookshelf area -




The T&G paneling was old. I sanded it and it has 4 coats of primer and 4 coats of paint. My wife chose colors of corals that are in my 110 gallon salt water aquarium -

Installed the desk back lights and painted the desk






My wife added some detail by painting waves on the desk.

And the complete project, where I go to work everyday -

The main work area



The printer and scanner (lower center) are on glides that allow me to pull them out -



Secondary work area -



Back wall -



And the bookshelf area. Each shelf gets progressively wider, starting at 12" and ending at 30", top to bottom.

Woah.. when I first saw your color scheme I wondered what sort of work you did to have walls like that. But, the finished room looks great! I personally wouldn't get much work done in there, though. I'd have the urge to sip daquiris all day. :)
