However, it is *almost* complete. All that remains is to sew and hang a decorative valance.
After Christmas, I moved my little sewing operation from the dining room into the husband's Man Room, which was just some carved out attic-like space.
The first to go were the dead animals. Thereafter, the real work began: 5 gallons of Kilz, 3 gallons of wall paint, and 1 gallon of white ceiling paint. It is not lost on me that the word "pain" comprises most of the word "paint."
However, the results are lovely, I think. Even though, I would have preferred to replace the flooring, as well. I am hoping cork is somewhere in my future.
This is a multi-function room, to say the least. The husband retains a corner for his gun safe, skull with antlers, duck stamp print, and locker full of hunting clothes, not to mention his fly-fishing rod rack. In addition, we needed an overflow guest room, too.
So, what I now have is an office/sewing room, personal yarn shop/guest room/man corner.
Last weekend, we had the unenviable task of helping to square away the last of my mother-in-law's estate. It was a mess; however, the antique mirror with the broken frame and plates, as well as the large blue chair came from there.
Surprisingly, the fabric on the blue chair is very similar (albeit in a different color way) to the fabric I chose as inspiration for the room.
When I have a spare moment, I will make the curtain and a few accent pillows from it. There may even be enough of it to make a bed skirt...
Of course, no room would be complete without the ever-faithful and loving Remy. He will be six months old in two days! He is already 52 pounds.
He can usually be found lying next to my desk...
or underneath it.
Now, I have a ton of knitting, designing, and sewing to do!
Has anyone else been busy?
