A fellow blogger I follow posted pictures of the various places in her home that she works. I figured I would do the same, but mostly to show before pictures of the mess I am in right now, so when I am done you will all be so impressed, lol, very tongue in cheek by the way !!
I had a room to work in but our youngest son moved home to get some money saved and at 24 he needed his own living room as well as a bedroom so we gave him my craft room to use for his living area. He set up his living room in there so he has a place to watch tv and have his friends over , which is good for both him and us.
So, we set up my big desk in the front half of the really huge living room, and make that half of the room my work room and a library type area. We will eventually pick up a couple of chairs to put behind the l ove seat with a table in between and make this a seperate room within the room.
So, this is where we are right now. We ordered three book cases to match the one we have from Target, and just like every other time we have bought more than one of these book cases, one was broken. In the apartment we bought three and only one was not broken and we never bothered to get them replaced, just got our money back. So, since I ordered them online at a great discount at the time, and that color is not sold in the store, I have to wait for them to send me another one so w e have to wait to finish it up. In the mean time we are painting the living room, it is currently a peachy color and the room glows peach in the sun, and replacing it with a color called studio mauve, a gray mauve color, which is really warm and pretty. So, we decided to empty my book case full of beads facing the room, and paint behind it as well, instead of around it, so myh beads are all over the dining room table. I took them out of the craft cubbard so they would be more accessable in the living room and to store some other items in that closet, mainly family photos. So, here is the mess we are living in now. It will only get worse when we take down the shelves over the desk to paint and then are adding one more shelf. So, I foresee a few weeks of mess ahead of me , lol !!! The piles are all kinds of things. One large and two smaller tubs of toys for the grandkids which we plan to edit down a lot. The old capez lamps we took down in the foyer and hall that I am going to put on ebay, and just books and project stuff and then just stuff, lol !!!
the living room itself is neat, so we can at least sit in there and relax !! I hate the curtain rod, it makes the curtains hang wierd, we have to get a bigger one, it looks awful !!!
when I sit at my desk, my back is to the mess too , lol !!!
The big mess another view !!
the dining room table, my beads and baubles, halloween decor to put away , autumn decor that is supposed to be nicely displayed on the table all jumbled together for now.
To top it all off my poor Hubby got injured at work, tried hard to treat it himself but finally had to have the company send him into a doctor and they did an MRI and he has to have shoulder surgery for a medium tear. We see the surgeon on Thursday to find out the details and when it will be. So, he is working one armed and is very limited so our son has to help with moving stuff and lifting and my husband is rolling and cutting in as he can with the good arm and any limited stuff he can do with the bad arm that does not hurt to do , which is not much. ,
Welcome to our home project, hope to show you the after pictures soon !!
