I'm all moved (back)!!
That old book shelf (actually, a TV center that I turned on its side or more space!) is out and the bookshelves, made by The Mister are in:
For those who Twitter with me, you know that I was second guessing my choice of bright blue.
No regrets now.
I love how they look with both the yellow walls and the red stained desk and shelves.
Above the desk will be my favorite print given to me by the daughter of this artist .
She gave it to me as a goodbye gift when we moved from Texas, five years ago. At the time, I didn't have the funds to have it matted and framed, so as we speak this is being framed:
I swiped this pic from the net...I wish it was better because L. Carter Holman's art is way more vibrant, rich, and beautiful, than the colors of this photo!
Since this room was originally purposed to be a formal living room (I had the door installed) there isn't any storage. I'm gonna make space under the work table by making a very long table skirt using this fabric:
I may switch the ironing board and shelf to the other side of the room and move the treadmill and elliptical to the other side...
... but for now, this will work. I do hope to eventually find a different lamp than that old one on the shelf. Actually I need to get more than one lamp, at night this room is fairly dark!
I have room for all my sewing and embroidery stuff, a desk for the kids to do thier math assignments, a place to sit and watch movies with The Girl on Friday nights, and enough space to work out (or when I am working on big projects!).
I moved the table from the east wall to the south, so that when I am sewing, I can have a nice view of the front yard:
