If you will recall, I have been moving furniture and painting and cleaning. Remember this?
I've made serious forward progress. I've now moved my office into Moe's old bedroom. (FYI - he loves being in his new-to-him room.) Want to see?
The room is painted and furniture moved in (I love the paint color). And it looks very good. Not all my Pez are unpacked, but I need new display stands to do that. I've taken advantage of the large closet to use as tatting/crafting storage. Oh- please ignore the messy piles of paper on the lower bookshelf shelves - they are mostly genealogy paperwork that I need to sort through.
My desk is set up - I'm typing at it now. Vader and the other cats like my room. They are very excited about all of the mess made and the cleanup afterwards. Moe's sitting in my chair, watching a movie. Yes, I have entertainment in my room.
A thrift store lamp looks nice on my desk. I find thrifting to be really fun - I think I have a good eye. The lamp base was a whopping $3.73; the shade I found at Target cheaply.
And finally - my tatting corner. This chair and ottoman were in my bedroom, being mostly used as a resting place for clothing. In fact, the lamp, paint, and a DSL connection were the only things I had to buy to get this room set up. The chair is super comfy, and that's my good Ottlight beside it. I may find a little side table via Craig's list to add to my corner, but otherwise the room is complete.
I'm a happy camper! I can tat in peace and happiness!
And Moe is a happy camper right now, as it is snowing fiercely. Three to five inches are predicted. School is already canceled for tomorrow.
I guess I've got time to tat tomorrow...
