Wow, I seriously needed that little bloggy break. I spent the time finishing some UFOs and talking in the amazing Fall colors. Break finished and so I'm back! I missed you all!
So remember I told you I was taking out daughter's room and turning it into my super room. Well I'm well on my way to being finished with it.
I took this these photos of Nan's room after she was all packed up to go to college Stateside so it looks a mess but it's a great before photo.
It was strange to pack up all her stuff and watch her decided what she was leaving behind. One thing about being a missionary, it leaves very little room for love of "things".
So Johnny and I took down the bed and moved the closet into our dressing room and started with an almost clean slate.
The first thing Johnny did was to add this long counter top to be used as a desk. I love the size of it cause I can have several little stations along the way. I love not having to pack up my
stuff junk to change projects. Plus after putting a skirt on the counter top I realized I can hide a multitude of junk under there.
I used a lot of random yarn I had lying around to make a crocheted valance for the window. It's a good thing I like pink since Hannah's custom blind was pink. Hey even if I didn't like pink I'd learn to.
We used Nan's old dresser to house all the paper and supplies for the Silhouette and printers. It's seriously nice to have everything corralled in one area.
I also love having a designated place to read some of my favorite blogs.
On the other wall I used some of Nan's old furniture to set up a sewing desk and a place for the wifi printer. BTW, can I just stop and say how amazing wifi printers are. Seriously, I can print from any device from anywhere in the house. Very cool!
I love being able to hang some art that Nan painted when she was little. I get a warm fuzzy feeling every time I look at those paintings.
Johnny made me a cutting table to finish off my little room. It's just the right size for the cutting mat and as soon as I skirt it I'll be able to hide Zoi's bed and my stash under there.
I loved making the art for my walls. Some of it I pinched but most of it was mine. I tried to include Scripture too since you can never get too much of God's Word.
BTW, can you see how much I love colors? Hey rainbow is my all time favorite color! Colors make me happy, make me smile. Who doesn't love to smile?
I am amazed how much more I can get done when all my stuff is easy to find and I have places to work. I seriously miss Hannah more than I ever thought I would but having my own super-room lessens the pain a little.
I'm not finished but at least my little room is usable and loved.
