I am sure the Oval Office redo is already old news, but I feel I need to throw my two cents in anyway. First, I must say that I DO understand it is the Oval Office and therefore needs to be somewhat restrained. And I also understand we are in the greatest recession since the Depression and no one wants to see Obama spending a fortune on an elaborate Oval Office redesign. However, why bother at all when you end up with this? And I hear the cost is equal to any other Oval Office redesign.
