Progress


This is by far the best looking area of the room
and
I am still going to take that shelf down and paint it.
But,
there is progress.
 
 

Friday morning
I started painting
and
the room is painted
and started to put back together.
Walls, ceiling
and
closet turned alcove.

And even these received a makeover.

Here is the blue one
turned gray
and
the closet turned alcove.
Still looking for more of those baskets
on the shelf above.
JWS actually picked those out for me
yesterday.
Didn't he do a great job?

And the rest of the room.
That picture on my sewing machine desk
is going to be redone.
And the curtains?
 

This material is headed for
sunny Florida
today
to be made into curtains!
My sister makes wonderful curtains
and
has agreed to do that for me!
 

Shawnee drew this for me when she was in high school.
This morning the frame will get a coat of paint
and the colors are perfect!

And of course,
the
before pics.
It was pretty bad.
Dated
Messy
and the
Closet!
It did have doors on it,
but how brave
am I showing it to you?
 

Disaster.
Now,
all of that and more is dumped
into my other two bedrooms
to be
sorted,
pitched,
donated,
organized.

Still deciding on this wall.
My ironing board has to go in there yet
and
yikes!
Another sewing machine.
 
This room is way smaller than the one I had before.
Hopefully,
that tames the hoarder in me!
 
And of course,
a resolution broken.
 
I was not going to buy any yarn
until I used up the stash.
Then my sister mentioned that she would like an afghan.
 
So much for that resolution! 

 
Cozy project for cold nights though.
Cold does not begin to describe what is coming tonight and tomorrow.
 
Sure makes one thankful for mowing season!
 
I would rather mow than shovel!

It looks great and I LOVE how you redid that closet. That's awesome.
Since the purchase was for an item requested by someone else I don't think that officially counts as breaking your resolution.
I'm with you on mowing. At least mowing doesn't break your back
The room is lookin good.

Oh and I don't think you really broke your resolution as long as you had use for the yarn right away.
