The Unveiling

So...my room is not complete. But it is getting closer everyday!

I'll start from the beginning. Don't be too shocked. You will understand why I was so overwhelmed with anything.

AHHHH!!!!! I know what you mean! LOL!

And then there is the during. I moved ALL of that junk out and made room for B to paint. And slather on the "fruity" color he did! (His word, not mine.)

Next, I had to decide where everything was to go! That was the hardest part since many things can get in your way, things you would never consider in the first place. Like, let's just say, for example, the air vent. It is hard to find the perfect desk to fit in the perfect spot in the right color at a good price. Asking for too much? Well, my walls are purple!

So, I did one better. I rearranged what I currently own. So the nice new sewing desk comes much, much, much later! As you can see, there is a lot of wall space to work with!
Above, is the farthest wall. On the very back wall, I will be placing my bulletin board...I think.

And the bookshelves are much neater. I love the green magazine holder. I did find this one at Home Goods, but the rest I will make with green zebra fabric.

The bookshelves are on each side of the window. And my dresser is underneath the window.

And here is my fav spot. A nice area to lounge and relax with a book and/or embroidery. To the left, you can see my Home Goods side table. On the bottom shelf is my radio clock with an iPod player. I wanted it close to my "lounge" area. Hmmm...how happy I am with this room!

It is time for me to make snickerdoodles and go to sleep. I need lots of rest to tackle my closet and the mess of baskets in the basement...[groan].
