Ok so you know that a few weeks ago my Dad moved out right? Well what better use to make of his old bedroom than to turn it into a pink haven for yours truly *wink*.
Ive been sharing an office with Shane for waaaaaaay toooooo long now, and when i say sharing i mean i had 3/4 of it and he had a corner for his desk (that's all the space he needed right).But...as time goes by, Shane is referring to my 'stuff' more and more as 'that crap' or 'that piece of junk there', and constantly asking "what are you planning to do with that old piece of crap?"....So yes, time for me to move on out !
And move i did !
Armed with my spray bottle of Nifti and several sponges, i entered THE TOXIC WASTE DUMP, aka Dads old room. I moved furniture,i cleaned, i mopped, i vacuumed, i swore very loudly ALOT...but in the end i got it ready for painting.
Here is a general idea of the BEFORE stage...
Beige walls and really icky flooring under the icky carpet we ripped up.
Here's a couple of shifty girls pretending to be all cute and innocent...Hmmm they dont fool me one bit.
Midway and things are looking good i think....
My trusty assistant...always ready to lend mum a hand *smiles*
AT LAST IT IS DONE.....
NOW...drum roll please.....
Come on in and have a seat on the comfy sofa !
SORRY, NO BOYS ALLOWED (except Sam and the kitty's of course)
This is where i sit and chat to you all (I'm waving right now) LOL.Don't you love my old monitor from the Jurassic Era? HAHA i let Shane keep the new flat screen, he needed it more than me, so i just prettied mine up a bit !
My 'mess desk' where i paint, etc etc
oooh some works in progress...
Cupboards and shelves full of 'stuff' that i need.
I made this little LOVE box for Sam to put letters into for me. He likes writing me love notes *smiles*
PHEW that's it !
So what do you think? Im really kinda loving it and its nice to be surrounded by pretty colours and pretty things when you are working on something creative.
And when i need a little break i can usually find a kitty or a kid to snuggle on my sofa with for a while.....
Thanks for popping by my office. Come back anytime !!!!
P.S before i go i wanted to say a heartfelt THANKYOU to all of you who left comments on my previous post and emailed me as well. Ally is doing very well right now and may be home from hospital tomorrow! She is a trooper that girl.
THANKYOU ONCE AGAIN. xxxx
