So, the workroom makeover is in full swing. I could tell you that I forgot to take “before” shots, but I’d be lying. I took them, but all they show are my piles of crap covering every horizontal surface so I’m not going to post any yet. Maybe after the room is done and I can counter with pictures that show I am not a complete slob.
Besides the workroom, I’ve also been rearranging my bedroom. By “rearranging” I mean: dismantling my closet entirely, setting up my antique brass bed,
deciding (much to my daughter’s delight) the bed was too high (my nightstand needed a booster seat);
and too “girly” (it is, and yes, the room is really that purple. It used to have dinosaurs on the walls too.)
and moving it into her room, setting up a will-do-for-now bed from the thrift store, building a new garment rack from iron pipe to replace the dismantled closet, and then deciding to completely reverse the layout of the room, and decorate it like the set from a Chanel ad. To accomplish that last part means finishing the demo of a wall-to-nowhere that has been waiting to come down for about 5 years, and also means some drywall repair. At this point I decided the bedroom flip would have to wait until I was finished with the workroom.
And here is a DIY from my dad: He didn't have enough room to store his extra art work in the garage of their new condo, so he hung everything.
