Craft Room {Part 4: Progress}


I honestly can’t remember how long ago I started “getting ready” to paint this room… Guess what? I did it!

PhotobucketI took a really long time to get all of my craft crap goodies cleared out so there would be room to roll. This is what happens when you put a 16×20 room worth of stuff in a 6×10 closet…

I pushed the remaining furniture to the center of the room {and found a dead spider between the mattress and box spring}  then got to work taping off the walls. I ran out of tape before I got to the ceiling. It will be fine… I thought. Ladies and gentlemen, just do it right the first time. I now have all of this to fix because I was too cheap & lazy to go buy more tape.

But I finished, and put the bed back, and my corner shelf {$10 at a yard sale} and dug out my boxes of nick-knacks from my parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. I was also able to find a home for Miriam {who still needs a bottom drawer}

This space above the bed needs something…

It’s a start. I’ll probably end up adding pieces here and there until it feels right.

At this point, I’m feeling a little overwhelmed. I’ve done so much , and yet when I look at the big picture… painting seems like a drop in a bucket. I really love the way things are coming together, though. It’s just what I saw while I was planning and dreaming.

DSCN0658-teaserHere’s a little teaser of another {almost} free project I finished this week. Hope everyone else was able to get some things accomplished. If not, take the weekend to do something you love.

In no particular order, I am a Christian, a wife, a mother, a lab rat, a poet, a gardener, a craft goddess-in-training, a daydreamer, a painter, a doodler, a bookworm, a some day entrepreneur, a rock star, a super hero, a fixer, a coffee enthusiast, a music lover, a beach dweller, a treadmill dreader, and a would-be tree-hugger. I love beautiful things, and sometimes have a really different take on what's beautiful. I have a wonderful (albeit stressful) life that I wouldn't trade for anything in the world. Some days I want to pull the covers over my head and stay indefinitely, but other days I want to jump up and find something amazing to see/ do/ make. I want to share the things I am passionate about with other passionate people. And so it begins...
