I’m back from my four day cleaning weekend. My arms are sore and I didn't get everything finished but I’m pretty satisfied with the work I accomplished. Remember how messy the studio was?
Well, after countless hours of moving stuff around, a planned trip to Best Buy and an unplanned trip to Ikea, I turned the studio back into a living room:
The storage room is slated to be my new studio but as that room was the messier of the two, I still have a lot of work to do.
So, until I can get everything settled there, let’s talk more about the living room! Here’s my “couch” which is nice to have because I used to sit on my desk chair to watch movies. Very uncomfortable!
Across from the bed is my new tv and my new tv stand. I’ve been saving up for months to buy a nice tv and I had planned to set it on some low bookshelves I have. I got the bookshelves all set up, all my books put away, set the tv on top and found out pretty quickly that despite holding lots of heavy books, they weren’t strong enough to hold the not-very-heavy tv. Weird. Ian and I took an emergency trip to Ikea and found this monstrosity of a shelf. It’s huge and I love it! If you want to see a few pictures of stuff on my shelves, click through to my flickr page.
I have plans to reupholster the chair and the footstool once I decide which fabric to use. I also want to use the zig zag quilt on the bed once I finish it. I think it'll look great with the wall color. For now, the studio is pretty unusable so it’ll be a little while before I can get in there to do any sewing. I also broke my desk when I moved it from the studio to the storage room so I need to go back to Ikea. Oh darn. ;)
