The holidays are behind us and I spent a couple of weeks coming up for air, but now it’s time to get busy with this house again. I am so close to being done with round one that I can taste it. I say round one, because this is the round where I just get the basics done. Walls painted, curtains hung…rooms organized…ALL the boxes unpacked and a little purging. Round two will involve bigger projects like redoing floors, windows and finishing the semi-finished basement.
The project right now is my office/craft room. I’ve been itching to get to this room for a long time!
I’ve started with the windows and getting them cleaned up. There are two of these that meet in the corner, one facing east and the other south. It’s a really cute arrangement and there’s a lot of natural light in here. This room gets more light that any in the house. Townhouses tend not to have a lot of light except at certain times of the day, so this room was the obvious choice for my craft room.
I am almost embarrassed to show you the current condition of this room, but if I don’t, you won’t be able to appreciate how far this room has come when it’s all done. I can’t even believe someone would let their windows get this dirty, but here is what they looked like before..
Is that disgusting, or what? Took me about 2 hours to clean these up. Below is the after. Ahhhhh….I love clean windows!
Here’s the room I have to work with. It’s a complete mess to any eye that might see it but mine. I actually do know where everything is. ::smile::
Now, close your eyes and try to imagine where I’m going with these curtains and wall color. The trim will be white. I’ll be posting more pics as I go through the process.
Lord, I love you so much. As I begin a new week, help me to be kinder and more understanding to those around me as I make my way through this fallen world. Put your loving hand over my mouth if I begin so speak negatively and remind me of who I am in You. In Jesus name I pray….Amen
