Well it's done. I mean it's as done as a room can ever truly be. I'd like to maybe add a dog bed for Ranger in one of the corners and probably a different slightly more comfy chair for Brian and others to sit in while visiting. But you get the idea. I wish you could know how happy this room makes me. When I walk in I just smile and feel all giddy inside. It took awhile to paint and to move into it because I forced myself to really organize and throw things out as I moved in (so glad I did even though I was getting antsy to be moved in). Even though that was exhausting it was still so fun! I haven't gotten to decorate like that in a while and oh it just felt so good to nest. And to be nesting in a room that is so ripe with possibilities!!!!! I can't say how grateful I am to my Brian for willingly giving me this space. Truly being supported like this is such a gift, I hope I can pay him back someday (with a finished published novel perhaps).
The following pictures do not do it justice (the blue seems weird and you don't get the full effect). I probably need a fancy camera and special lens but this is the best I can do.
|My ironing board set up and not in my kitchen, Huzzah!!|
|My "new" sewing desk, new machine, and new chair.|
|I bought this old machine and table at the "Bible Thrift Shop"|
it was in terrible shape so I sanded and refinished it.
|My dress form, Gerti.|
|My book shelf. I wish you could see the|
mason jars filled with buttons and trims better
it's really cute!
|I made the valances from super expensive "sewing"|
themed fabric (that's why there valances and not curtains).
|This is the view from my sewing machine.|
Do you see my bird friend?
