Today’s post won’t be long. I just want to share a fun, new, “just for me” project happening in my home. With all the kids moving on to the “adulting” phase of life, we have a couple of empty bedrooms. In the coming days, I will begin the process of taking over one of those rooms and turning it into my own space. My crafting supplies will move up there as will my desk and some other personal items. There will, of course, be a “reading corner” (everyone needs a cozy chair with a table for a coffee cup sitting nearby, right?!) and we’re hoping to have some extra sleeping space (a futon, most likely) for when out-of-state family comes to visit.
In short, I get to make this space in the house completely my own and I have to share it with NO ONE. That sounds pretty fantastic! The first step – once our current heat advisory ends and being in the upstairs bedrooms is less stifling! – is to tape off the window and door frames, prime the walls and then paint. Soon, I’ll post before pictures and pictures of the project in progress. The painting shouldn’t take long. Then the carpet comes up, furniture gets moved, items get hung on the walls . . . so much to do!
