What do you see from your blogging spot?
Thought I would show you my new office/sewing room. It is at least 3 times the size of my last one! (which ain't saying much) Since we have 4 bedrooms in this house (and we are officially empty nesters now) I get my own room. I showed you the two guest rooms last week. I carefully cropped those pictures - I'm not cropping anything here!
My computer cabinet is in a corner so directly on my right is a blank wall (who knows when I will ever get any pictures up on the walls - I supposed I have to actually unpack them first) The wall is beige - just like every other wall in the house. This is the current view if I look to my left.
This is where Big Bertha (my sewing machine) will make her home when her table gets here - hopefully this weekend. (still at the apartment) I will have the two windows for light and the view of the trees across the street. The trees are part of a 'reserve' and will not be cut down to build more houses. (yeah!)
Keep turning to the left and this is what I see
The bookcase is on the other end of the 'Bertha' wall. Bertha made it over yesterday - there she is in her travel case (brown with pink trim) Poor thing has been in that case since we went to Minnesota the first week of August. (I left her for a check up while we were gone and she hasn't been let out to play since)
Turn a little more (don't you just love a chair that turns with you?)
with my back to the computer and this is what I see. Under that pile 'o crap is my file cabinet - my empty file cabinet. It needed to be empty to move it. The goal is to clean out and shred as I put everything back in. We will see how that works out! I want to put a comfy chair on the wall between the door and bookcase. In addition to Bertha's table, there is another bookcase that will go in here when we get it moved over from the apartment. I can't really do a lot of organizing in here until I have the other bookcase so I can unload boxes.
Now, here's a question for ya. I need to decide what color I want to paint in here. Even if I decide to stick with a 'neutral' color (doubtful) the builder beige has to go. I can't do anything about the beige carpet at the moment so it has to stay. I also need to add something to the windows. (you can't see the top in the picture, but there are no treatments anywhere in the house - they all have the blinds, but that is it) I'll leave the blinds but I need some 'foof'. Will this be the first room to see paint? Who knows. I keep telling myself I need to get all the boxes empty before I start painting but can I do it?
See how dark and gloomy it was in that first picture? We woke to rain this morning - I thought it was going to last most of the day but the sun just broke through - hope it lasts!
Have a great weekend!!!
