Room Makeover

Its been a long time since I have posted regularly. We were busy moving (For the LAST time) and busy remodeling. We purchased a smaller place almost half the size of anything else we have lived in because we have come to realize we do not need to continue living in such a large place wasting money on heat etc. when it is just the two of us. Maybe we both came to the realization that we were obviously avoiding before that we are "older","retired" people.

So now we live in a smaller brick house that is a retirement house for us. It was hard to squeeze my large oversized furniture into a small place but honestly it fit better than I had thought it would except for the bedroom. I love my bed and I always said if it is the only thing that will fit and I have to jump in the bed from the door I will do it. Well its not quite that bad but its very close ha ha.

I wanted to show some before and after pictures of the progress we have made of my craft room. Its not completely done yet but it is pretty darn close. I am loving this room. It is full of light all day with the 3 windows in it and its just very comfortable and I stay in it whether I am crafting or not pretty much all day!


Here is a before (realtor pictures) CLICK ON PICS TO SEE LARGER


Here is the after (took at night so lights are glary sorry)






I really love it!! I just got all the ikea furniture in the past few days so it is really coming together!
Thanks for looking at my room! More organization to come!

Looks very cozy and I love the difference between the old and new, the walls are so pretty now with the wood panel gone and look at those floors they are just beautiful. You should be able to take excellent pictures of all your projects with the light shinning through those windows. I keep telling Alf it is time to down size but he is just so stubborn. Grrr! it makes me so mad. I am getting to old to clean house all day it is time to down size and start enjoying life. Anyway great job on your room. Have fun!
