Now this looks like where Bees Knees Bungalow is made!
Soooo much better. It's a breath of fresh air and a long overdue project completed.
It's homey, inviting and uncluttered.
The Springtime for Jeanne-Marie child's book - I've had for a few years now.
It was a gift from my sister Debbie .. Thanks Deb!
The two jars were this week's thrift store finds. Love the big "misc." jar - $4.99.
It's filled with shredded newspaper at the moment. The lamp I bought at Target.
I'm pretty happy with my little creative spot.
The upstairs has come a looonng way in the past few weeks.
Here's the Before:
From Horrendously Embarrassing
(winning some kind of bravery award for even showing this):
To During - Less Horrid :
To...What a cozy little work space!
For the life of me I couldn't get the pics just right.
I may redo them - I need daylight. But it's a start and so much better.
Never ever will it get so bad again. I had the kids sign affidavits.
What's funny is that I've sat up at the desk this week and thought; "Now this is strange, perhaps I'll blink and all the crap will reappear?! But no, thankfully - it's all really gone and the coziness remains.
Plus a few miracles happened.
First, The Cabinet Maker said to me; "You know, this spot should be for you alone. The kids should use something else". Shocker of all time.
Second, the kids have kept the 'no food rule' and not eaten upstairs. I know this because there are no drips or spills, and even more proof - no dishes left on the desk- which I assure you, if they ate there - they'd have left them.
