Slowly but surely :-)
I have finished painting my workroom, my main overhead light has gone up and I have my own computer (and all my files) back...whhheeee.
As you can see from the photos there is still a looong way to go yet but at least the basics are done.
I wanted adjustable closet shelving in the closet but after looking at the price I decided my old plastic shelving will suffice :-)
I will put shelves of some kind up on the spare wall to the right of the closet. I'd prefer open shelving and it seems insane that I can buy flat pack bookcases cheaper than I can buy shelves and brackets. But I'll be needing somewhere to display all the flowers and sculpts I'll be making soon :-)
The workroom is at the side of the house and doesn't have a very nice view. I toyed with the idea of using the other bedroom, which looks out onto the back garden, but thought I'd save the nicest view for the guest bedroom. Besides, when I am in here I ought to be working not gazing out of the window. I'll plant something along the fence to make it somewhat prettier and I'll add some bird feeders out there.
The room would ideally be another 6 inches bigger all the way round as the desks only just fit ( they are pulled away from the wall at the moment) but I am grateful to have a room of my own so am not complaining.
The sewing machine won't be a permanent fixture....I am in the middle of making drapes for the front room.
At least once this room is finished I can move some of the boxes that are filling up the other rooms. Then we can worry about what to do with the rest of the house and garden...something I am NOT looking forward to at all.
Well I best get cracking and start emptying some of these boxes. I thought you might like to see what has been eating my time up of late.
