The Oval Office Gets a Makeover

Ad Feedback

The Oval Office was recently redecorated while the first family was on vacation.

The most notable change is the rug that covers nearly the entire office.  Gone is the yellow sunburst rug that George W. Bush had, and in its place is a wheat, cream and blue oval-shaped rug.  The rug has the presidential seal in the middle and some of President Obama's favorite quotes around the edges.

There's also new wallpaper and paint in the Oval Office.  The chairs that former President Bush had in front of the fireplace have also been reupholstered with leather.

Some new additions to the Oval Office include the president's desk chair, coffee table and couches.

But the iconic desk, known as the "Resolute Desk" remains in place.

The cost of the makeover wasn't released, but the White House said the price tag was in line with what former presidents have spent when they redecorated.

The new look was paid for from money left over from Obama's inaugural committee and funds from the White House Historical Association.
