Deep pink trim and cream walls , moving in the mahogany desk I inherited from my grandmother, along with my old barrister book case constitutes the first stage. I have an ugly blue filing cabinet to hide in the closet, but a filing cabinet, nevertheless. Curtains are going to be something zany and wild, shades of orange and raspberry (like my blog background!). Eventually I'll add in a comfy chair or small love seat and probably a second bookcase. I'm going to have a bulletin board wall for storyboarding and tons of art. Plus all my craft books and kidlit books will be in ONE ROOM and my nightstand can be designated for the one I'm reading and not some towering TBR pile.
Here's the before pic. Random junk in the room still (including that grey monstrosity of a filing cabinet on the left and that ugly office chair- the cork screw table is an awesome artist-made piece that I'm going to put my old Remington on), trim paint started but not finished. No curtains. I won't be painting over the kids' grow lines on the door frame - too special. Now I'm off to finish painting the trim!
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to make your own space to write.
