The Final Reveal
1. a computer/craft/guest room
2. a room capable of distressing Donna
3. a room 14 months in the making
I have finally finished and ready to show you around.
This room is only 12 X 14 and is used daily by me and occasionally by guests.
I have worked hard. I am planning to share every little bit of it.
Be Prepared: extreme photograph overload!
This appeared out of the rubble of the former Horror Monster to become my favorite part of the slash room.
My French drying rack lamp rewired by Chucks to become a swag lamp with little zinc pots.
Notice the mood lighting from the mirrors.
My favorite seascape.
The room did not need repainting.
The Arlette bookcase forms the other side of the nook.
It is a bit jumbled, but I promise to rearrange things.
The heads and the book boxes came out of the dining room to grace The Nook.
The small mission oak table holds a huge button jar and a bucket of dried lavender.
Under the oak bookkeeper's desk are EMPTY storage boxes and a bin of French seam binding.
The Nook has become my favorite place to sit on a stool and journal.
The Craft Area
Behind the door the bookcase and the numbered cabinet are filled with craft supplies neatly organized and visible to the eye.
If you see it, you will use it!
The Lowery blue desk awaits a project or perhaps my sewing machine can be freed from the attic.
A three-drawer chest holds ribbons and other fabric.
The small bookcase is for magazines and paper storage.
A locker basket of canvases.
A chalkboard for inspirational ideas.
The Computer Corner
The corner under the window is perfect for the computer. The birds and squirrels run along the tree branches outside.
No fancy paint jobs here - this is my serious work place.
I have hidden those cords after seeing this photo.
The Guest Room
The Arlette bookcase at the headboard of the twin bed.
We only have small guests.
Layers of comforters and quilts and pillows.
A wicker side table with birdcage and lamp.
You can see The Nook back there.
Who would put an aluminum screen door guard over a bed?
Why, I would!
A tray for the goodies I put out for guests.
If you come, I will leave some for you.
Pretty tote bags get stuffed with extra pillow forms.
OOPS! A touch of yellow peeking out from the former color scheme.
I forgot to buy white shams.
Additional Craft Supply Storage
Yes, the closet door will now shut - if Chucks planes it down.
The door holds my vintage hangers, some frames, and wreath forms.
The cabinet holds craft paint.
There is a story behind this green dresser.
When I get around to painting it, I will tell its story.
It holds an assortment of stuff including my Time Capsule, or what is left of it.
The blue Mason jars add extra storage for small pieces and buttons.
So there you have it.
A finished slash room.
i even added an extra space - The Nook!
Have I kept it clean the past two weeks?
Why, yes, I have.
There are more Items in there now out of necessity.
But I will leave the light on for you when you have time to come for a visit.
I even put a rug out to keep your tootsies warm.
If you have made it all the way down to here, thank you.
It was hard work, but now I am on a mission for all the rooms in the house to look like this.
