White House Renovations 2017

Whoa! The Oval Office Is Unrecognizable Right Now

We've been speculating as to exactly how Donald Trump would personalize the White House since even before he was elected. And it wasn't long after moving in that the president began to add signature gold updates to the Oval Office and First Lady Melania announced she would be embarking on a home redesign with luxe-meets-traditional interior designer Tham Kannalikham. Well, it seems we'll only have to wait a bit longer to see what the makeover entails as the White House has officially begun renovations.

White House Correspondents' Association President Jeff Mason just tweeted a telling picture of a bare Oval Office, naked but for sheets of plastic and painter's tape protecting the walls. "This is what the Oval Office looks like under renovation," Jeff wrote. Based on another tweet featuring a row of pods outside the White House, presumably filled with furniture and decor, captioned, "Pods outside the White House as renovation goes on for a couple weeks while @realDonaldTrump @POTUS is away," we can assume that the renovations are set to align with the president's scheduled vacation.

As for what exactly they will entail, we can only speculate. Given the walls are protected but the floor exposed, we're guessing the simple striped paper will remain but the bold, geometric floors will be given an overhaul and the furniture in the room refreshed — with the exception, of course of the president's historic desk.
