Since I can't do much about the big projects myself I decided I would tackle a little project that is long overdue. We live in a small 3-bedroom 1100 square foot house. When our three kids were all home there was barely enough room to turn around in. As a result when we bought our first family computer the only space available for it was in our master bedroom. For the record that computer had a cutting edge 486 processor running Windows 95. So yeah, it's been a few years.
At any rate, we've been empty nesters for four years now and there is still a computer in our bedroom. We're in the process of turning our daughter's old room into a new office/guest room. That project has been tabled for the time being until we get the new windows installed and some other repairs done. In the meantime the computer is going to be moved to the former boy's room, now my sewing room. I don't do much sewing anyway so it might as well be used for something. I can't wait to have that extra space in our room! And if I have anything to say about it that space will stay that way. Wonderfully, gloriously empty!
I have several other projects waiting in the wings that I want to get to this summer. By wings I mean the garage, where my husband would like to see some empty space also.
Orla Kiely print like some of those found here.
And finally, a pair of wrought iron x-benches that need new paint and new cushions. Button tufted maybe? They'll go side by side in front of a new sleep sofa in the office. Don't you just love that crazy zigzag 70's print velvet fabric? Unfortunately it's filthy and covering a piece of unpadded plywood. Plus it really, really bugs me that the zigzags aren't centered.

As you can see I have a bit of work cut out for me this summer. So the sooner I get started the better!
