So, it's been more than 2 weeks since I posted anything. I must not be cut out for the blogging world, afterall :(
I guess my problem is in always wanting to have pictures to show you. And I prefer to show a finished project. I actually had some pics of the craft room a week ago, but never quite got around to putting them on the ol' blog.
Now I'm actually glad that I didn't as hubby and I spent some time cleaning up the room yesterday and now it looks MUCH better! :)
So, the walls are all painted, the shelves are back up and I have actually put a few books on the shelves on the right of this pic. (Please ignore the UGLY green couchy-thingy-- it will go bye-bye as soon as I can find something to replace it!)
This wasn't really the order I wanted these pics, but it is what it is-- I haven't had much luck moving them once I load them. This next pic shows that we have big stuff in store for this end of the room! The 2 closet doors used to be the same, but hubby cut out that wall so there will be open shelving there, also. I had thought we would cut out the entire wall, which is why I didn't paint it, but obviously, it didn't work quite like that. So, the remainder of that wall will be painted pale yellow, too.
This will be my sewing corner. I LOVE THAT! Being able to say I have an actual sewing corner! My sewing machine will sit on the desk (I will make a dust cover for it at some point), all my sewing supplies in baskets and jars on the shelves around me. *sigh of contentment*
The little window seat area will most likely hold a tv so that hubby and I can watch while I craft. The other desk area would be great for all of my scrapbooking stuff, or wrapping paper and ribbon, or a hundred other ideas that I have.
Sorry this next pic is so bad. I just wanted you to see that I even made up the bed so that it would not only look better, but it's also ready for company. These are not the colors that I have chosen, but it works for now! The quilt on the bed I originally made for our guest room. The embroidered pillowcase is courtesy of my MIL. It actually belongs to my daughter. The bear I made out of an antique quilt that was full of holes.
With the lovely warm weather we had earlier in the week, I took the opportunity to paint the window panes that I hadn't done yet.
Thanks for sticking with me, even when I seem to check out for long periods of time! I've got a ton of potential projects lined up for summer!
