I did however make it to Ikea to pick up my new desk and a few other goodies. When I got home, I had the best present in the mail waiting for me. I ordered a pillow from Jill Flory at Sew a Fine Seam. Nothing is put together yet, so I will show that when it is all fluffed and gorgeous. In the meantime. This is where I was and this is where I am now:
Notice the lovely stains on the carpet, it is gone, and the concrete was sealed for the new floor. Do I have to say more?
The Hugantic desk I bought for pennies from a guy who was a painter, and he used it! It sort of took over the room.
I boxed up, bagged up, and gave away about 1/4 of the things in there.
This is where I am now, couch moved under the window and has a lovely drop cloth draped over it until I can afford real slip covers or real upholstery work, or I do it myself, (which is like not for a long time)
This is where my new desk will go……..
And I created a “privacy” curtain and entrance from an old door I had. This way, at least I can pretend I am working, and maybe it will slow my kids down from immediately interrupting my train of thought. Should I extend that curtain so it goes the length of the room and put a lock on the other side?
I hope I will have some more to share next week! Happy weekend,
