my little craft room: good enough for now
I thought I’d throw up some pictures of my (unfinished) craft room today, since I haven’t really mentioned it at all yet. I’m sure you’re all wondering where I’d be sewing (if I had the time), right? Mmm, yeah. Or not.
We picked up the super-awesome mid-century modern dresser off of craigslist, and it does a lovely job of storing fabric and other sewing goodies. The rest of my craft supplies can be neatly hidden in the closet. Everything else we moved from our home in Minneapolis.
Just getting this far was kind of a big deal… we’d been using this room to hold everything we needed for our bathroom remodel, and it was kind of a construction nightmare.
Speaking of the bathroom, I’ve been painting it. We kind of ignored it for a few weeks, hoping that the work would do itself, but that never happened. Sometimes, when there’s projects that both J and I don’t want to undertake, we just let it sit there. We wait it out until the other person does it. It’s like the elephant in the room. No one talks about it… just waits it out. I usually give in. Jason is WAY more patient than I am with these things (or lazy. Is it laziness, JT?). Does anyone else do this?
Moving on. One of the most awesome perks about this house is that I get to use the nicely-sized third bedroom to make stuff. Or, I will use it to make stuff, once I’m done painting the house. Or something.
We’ve sort of hit the point in the move where I just really really really really want to hang up pictures. Looking at bare walls is getting old.
But I have commitment fears. Like: what if I make that nail hole in the wall and later decide I don’t want to hang the picture in that spot? Then, I’m left with a hole in the wall, and patching and repainting is a lot of work. (Oh, who am I kidding? I would totally just leave the big old nail hole there!)
So that’s that. My little craft room. It will probably be the last room to actually get a coat of paint and some pictures, but at least it’s functional for now!
