I have had this idea in my head for a few years now & after having a corner downstairs for my sewing machine & then another corner in this bedroom upstairs & then 2 corners of this room I finally claimed the whole room for me.
The daybed is now downstairs which gave me room to make my craft/sewing table bigger. It was a quick fix making a new top. Popster cut down one of the old closet doors I had to sweet talk a guy in L*wes to cut a piece of laminate the right size for the top. I just had to paint the edges white.
See how pretty the floor is now.
The bulletin board is now my brain so I can put all the things I "dream
up" on it & hopefully unclutter my head.....that will never happen
but it's worth a try. The curtain rod was something I found on
I an loving my new space which I waited for for so long. Only problem I'm on the short end of my winter hiatus so don't have long to enjoy it!
I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic. Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play. I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way. One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car". I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.
I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.
About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me something.....how did I know it wasn't going to be pretty! My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in August......to wear unevenly. As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.
After a long winter I went back to work on Thurday & as usual it was crazy with the phone ringing off the wall! The weather wasn't that great but golfers in the northeast are like caged animals who are finally free! We had good weather predicted for the weekend & I was scheduled to work both days. After a very long day Saturday I finally got done around 8 pm & was meeting Popster & Jess in Ballston Spa at a surprise birthday party for Jeff & Colby. Jess met me in the parking lot & said she was leaving as she had also worked all day. She showed me her arm where she had been bitten by a cat earlier at work. She had gone to urgent care & they gave her antibiotics & she went back to work.
Before I left for work Sunday at 5:30am I woke her up to look at it & didn't like the way it was swelling up. I told if it didn't look better when I got home at lunch we were going back to urgent care.
