Razorback Office Upgrade!

While I was working on the office curtains, I had an idea to rearrange the Razorback office.  Luckily, I had a day off work that week, and took it as an opportunity to rearrange the office while Nick wasn't there.  I moved the Billy bookcases (Ikea) to the lounge area, and moved his Besta unit (Ikea) to flank an Expedit unit (also Ikea), with the intention of buying another Besta unit if he liked the changes.
We usually have a 30 day let's-wait-and-see-how-we-like-this policy.  We move/change something and live with it for 30 days before we make a decision on whether we approve of it or not.  Most things don't make it the 30 days.  It takes about 7 days for us to decide if we like it, and we move on from there.
Well, last weekend Nick said the words I've always wanted to hear, "We need to go to Ikea".  He had decided that he liked the new arrangement, and wanted to pick up the other Besta unit.  After the other Besta unit went up, we realized that the 2x2 Expedit unit was awkward in the room, so we switched it out with the 4x2 Expedit unit we had in the guest room. 
 So here it is, the upgraded Razorback office:

 We have created more space for Razorback items, although we have limited the art space.  It looks a little sparse right now, but after our vacation to Arkansas in November, it should be looking fuller.  

We are still working on the countdown list, but I can guarantee that it will not be completed by my birthday.  We hit a big snag two weeks ago, and it's been slow progress since.  We have about two weeks left though, so if we get to a couple more items I will be satisfied. 

P.S. Happy Mother's Day!
