Quick Update, the road is long, but the journey well worth the effort

Yep, that about sums up my office overhaul.  It is taking ……………..a……………….long………………………time……………………to……………..get

………………….everything……………….together……………………and…………….sorted………………out.

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,

  1. Don’t bother with a lock, they will still find a way in, and if they don’t they will make enough noise to distract you anyway.

  6. It’s coming along! I so wish I could just fly out there and make that slipcover for you. I could have that think done in a day. And get away to somewhere warmer than it is here I bet!
