I apologize for disappearing without notice but life took an interesting twist and we moved! Our previous living situation was turning into something that was not quite so pleasant to be around any longer so we decided to move.
We were very lucky to find a house that I absolutely adore. It has lots of space and it is just waiting for some color and for us to fill it with love. Instead of living in a sleepy suburb of Austin, we are now more in a sleepy suburb of San Antonio. But all in all, it’s a great location and I absolutely love it!
So let’s start the tour!
I’ll be posting about each room as I go along but for today, I want to show off the mess, I mean, the room that will be my crafting room as well as my work office.
It’s not a huge room but the space it provides will be great! And the amount of natural light it gets is absolutely wonderful! The brown shelf on the left of the picture will be sanded down and repainted. Kress painted it to have a more wood grain type look and I think it is way too dark. It needs to be lighter, brighter so I am hoping to sand it down and paint it within the next couple of weeks. In the mean time, it’s playing the role of catch all while I unpack and get the room organized.
The table closest to the door is my desk. It’s a re-purposed drafting table and fits the bill perfectly! I had to flip the pencil shelf since it stuck up a bit.
I found a clamp style desk organizer stuffed in a closet so I clamped that onto the back and voila, we have storage! The lamp actually belongs in the bedroom but for now, it was a safe place to put it so it didn’t get lost in the wrangling of the boxes. The bear is from Build-A-Bear that I picked up a few years ago. I fell in love with his lime green mohawk and just had to have it. So now he is my co-worker. The painting on the wall was a birthday present from my very talented friend, Kellie. I love all the colors and when I am having an incredibly frustrating day at work, I just take a break and study it for awhile.
The closet in this room is pretty awesome! All of my SCA clothes and accouterments will live in here. I was hoping I could also house my crafting supplies and fabric but that is looking like it may very well not be the case as I keep unpacking fabric! I guess this means I should just get off my backside and start sewing! So this closet will be a work in progress as time goes on.
All in all though, I am pretty thrilled with the changes that have been going on and the promise of the future.
