Painting and Priming

workout_before_1

We have a giant spare room upstairs that has been designated the workout room as well as Jefe’s “office”. He NEVER spends time up here anymore…AND he has a gym membership. So, we have decided that it would be a good idea if I moved my sewing room up to this space so he can take over my current sewing room downstairs.

Ugh! Look at those curtains! I hate them!

I am super stoked. I love this room as it has great light and I am a sucker for sloped walls. It’s been this horrible lavender color since we’ve moved in and I am FINALLY getting around to repainting it (and getting new blinds!)

All of this painting is mainly prep for when we eventually get new carpet up here. However, I took this opportunity to upgrade my seedling closet. Here’s the before:

I think this room was originally painted a really bright orange (like the carpet you can see peeking out in the hallway), and the closet was a bright green. Barf. It’s a seventies house FO SHO.

I bought a shelving unit and more lights and got everything installed this weekend:

It was pretty shocking when I first plugged all of those lights in. I think I burned my corneas. We had to finish assembling the shelving unit INSIDE the closet, so this thing is pretty much stuck in there now. I don’t care…I LOVE it.

I’ve got the room halfway painted, and I still have to do the doors. My hand/arm is killing me from all of the painting, but I am so happy with the progress so far.

Home stuff and other stuff



I couldn’t help myself and I bought another Jim Flora record to add to my collection! I LOVE it! You know what, best cialis sovaldi sale though? Now I have an odd number which means I need to buy another one to restore order to the universe. This might seem a little OCD, tadalafil but since they are being displayed in a grouping I can blame it on aesthetics.
And…since we’re talking about restoring order to things…have I shown you this before? I can’t remember.

Yep. This is my office and it’s a mess.  Not surprising to those of you who are intimately acquainted with my living habits.  Part of the problem (only a small part) is that I’ve been in a holding pattern because I thought that I was going to be swapping my office with another room in the house, but it’s since been decided that it’s probably a good idea if I stayed right where I am.

So, now that I’m not moving anywhere I’ve decided to get off my duff already and whip this mess into shape. I’ve already got a gigantic pile (Books! So.Many.Books) ready to head to Goodwill and then the next order of business will be to paint everything white. I have a long weekend ahead of me with iffy weather, so hopefully I can finally, FINALLY get rid of the salmon/lime green walls. I can’t believe I’ve lived with this wall color for so long.

I am also declaring it my “sewing room” henceforth and have been cultivating a collection of inspiration ideas on Pinterest to get me in the mood.

What else will be going down this weekend? Chive blossom vinegear. Also this Radish Leaf Pesto. What are you doing?
