Before, and yes, after.
This was how the room looked before we even moved in.
I remember when we opened the door to this room, I just felt overwhelmed. Could it ever be a cute room?
My sisters came over one day to paint the shelves and walls right before we moved.
It helped a LOT, but the room was still always “trashy”. The kind of room that has the door shut all the time, and if you wanted to walk into it you had to walk around stuff. The other night I laid in bed and thought,
Life for that room does not have to be that way.
Kidding. But anyways– I had this renewed mission to make something of the utter chaos in that pit.
Oh, as a PS. I will say also that that room made me blue-sy because the previous owners had a cat in it that obviously liked to occasionally take a leak, yes pee, in it. I have shampooed the carpets twice with bleach, used two bottles of litter cleaner, the faint smell lingers on. It is *actually* very very frustrating as well as… gross.
Die, cat, die. 🙂
Anyways– here is the room after a day of me and the girls wading in.
We`d like to welcome you….
to a cleaner room!
Funny, how this room is now my favorite room in the house.
I could tinker in there all day and never get bored.
The chalk board says.
“Welcome to my art room. It`s fun in here”.
Did I mention I love my dressmaker`s form?
It still has it`s original JC Penneys tag on it. I like to hang all kinds of things upon her that inspire me.
One side of the shelves. There is another side just like it on the right side also.
Candy jar holds my note cards. Now I get all excited to write out thank you cards.
Ribbon on a skinny rod hung with ribbons. Bought the rod at Walmart for .59.
Cute things out and smiling! Instead of in dusty bins and boxes.
Two projects I was working on when I snapped the pic.
Bulletin board. What I have hanging on here changes constantly.
I love you, I really do. 🙂
The camera in the back means a lot to me. It is EXACTLY like the one my parents shot all my childhood pictures with. When I click it, to take a fake pic, all these memories come flooding back of how cool that camera was to me when i was 5…
While I was on the rampage, I organized the room outside of the art room too.
Weird shot– should have been deleted.
I have a bunch more pictures of the art room, but just thought it`d be fun to share a few now.
Happy After Cyber Monday day to ya!
My hus bought a Droid, I didn`t buy a thing. 🙂 Jenny
