I'm Going To Tackle It!

I woke up today still not feeling well but pretty proud of myself. I managed to clean up about 90% of my mess in the dining room. I lugged almost everything down to our finished basement, planning on finally setting up my work area until I came up with a better idea. I decided that the office on the main floor of the house would be a much better fit. First I had to convince my sweet hubby that this is a good idea & why....basically swearing to him that it "won't turn into a junk dumping ground"........I promise. :)

You gotta love all of the cables & my copier on the floor...

Another view of the mess in here....I do like the french door though
This means that I have to get off of my hiney & paint this room. This room has kinda been ignored, it has turned into a "where should we put this stuff" room. To make matters worse one wall of the room is a bright, but kinda dark turquoise! All of the other walls are a boring tan color. Kinda hard to explain but hopefully you can see it in the pictures. Almost every wall needs patching up too. the previous owner was what I call Anchor Crazy!! She used anchors for everything & when she would move something she would just slap paint on top of the old unused anchors....as a result I have to do a lot of patching up first, before I paint! Ugh.
So wish me luck as I jack myself up on some Dayquil & try to turn this into a beautiful office/craft room....

p.s. I'm already thinking that I might just need an antique armoire to hold my supplies ;)

  2. Good luck on this, what color(s) are you planning on using? Feel bad for you that you have to do this when you're sick. Feel better and can't wait for the reveal!
