Hello Dear Friends! It isn't 100% finished... and really there is a lot left to do... but I'm using it! Here is my new space...
Tony said there was no way I was going to fit all my furniture pieces in there, but so far I have. One room is full up... and one room is still empty.
I am reminded though... "A place for everything and everything in its place."
I've got a mish~mash of furniture... but I don't mind. It all works for me!
Here are a few of my favorite things... a sign given to me by Joanne (on the top) and another made for my by my little brother, Kelly.
Wanna see my wool? Here it is all clean and sort of organized... it is setting on a shelf that was in our basement when we moved. I slapped some green paint on the shelf long ago & have used the heck out of it...
The basket sitting up on top on the left is an heirloom. My Mom gave it to me long ago. She and my Dad bought it shortly after they were married. She told me it was the first antique she ever bought.
This old desk is probably my most cherished piece of furniture...
It may not look like much now... because it has been through a lot in all its years... including a house fire. The desk has a broken drawer (that I do still have) and the part that closes up, sadly, is now missing... but this old desk once belonged to my Great Grandma 'Gram'. You may remember me mentioning her before. She has been the inspiration for many of my cross stitch pieces. One day I hope to have this desk restored... but will have to safe lots of pennies and find someone I trust to do it right. Until then... I'm going to use it. I plan to use it as my computer desk once we get the cable run to the studio.
The other room is bare except for my bookshelf of craft books...
I do have furniture to go in here, but need to get it painted first. I have a table & an old buffet purchased from an auction awhile back. I plan to paint them black... and distress them of course. Once done, they will soon have a home in this room.
The princesses are really comfy. Ima is still skid-dish (you can see her above checking out the desk ~ she seems to like the smell of Pledge.), but Katie totally loves affection... and this chair!
Well, I better get back over there. I'm working on finishing a couple small mats for the update on January 1st.
Wishing you all warm smiles...
