Yes friends I am just that way. I want it all to be perfect, but it is not. I think it will take quite awhile for it all to shake out, and settle into where it goes. That aside, here is the basic layout.
The window quilt is whole cloth, and was a practice piece for machine stippling and binding the edges. It also instantly and dramatically warmed up my room! The handbag collection was my Mother-in-laws. The little bed by where I work is Tucker’s place. 🙂
And this is very special to me…
The vintage telephone table was a recent purchase. The vintage telephone belonged to Bob’s parents and still has the old phone number on it… the one I dialed so long ago and he answered… AND IT STILL WORKS! 😉
Things I learned how to do:
- Use a pneumatic nail gun
- Use a radial miter saw (and didn’t hurt myself!)
- Build and install a sewing counter (it’s there on the left in the first photo)
- Lay and cut in vinyl flooring.
- Miter and nail in shoe to hold flooring
Bob painted the ceiling and helped me carrying the heavy stuff. He also helped me with hanging the wire shelving and the peg board (it takes two for those jobs). But the rest of it was all me.
Can’t you just feel me smiling?
Now, what else can I
tear up fix around here? OH, I know, the laundry/mud room!
