It all started with this lamp. I was at Target a few days after the Liberty of London collection came to Target. I'd been waiting and waiting. There were only two of these lamp shades left and I was standing there looking at them when another woman walked up and I said to her, "I want this so bad, but I just don't know where I would put it." She said the same thing -- that it just wouldn't fit in her house anywhere. We had a little conversation about it and then she walked away.
I really loved that lamp. I really wanted it. So I said to myself-- what the hell. I'll find a place for it and I bought it.
As soon as I got home I realized it belonged in my office. As soon as I put it in my office I realized how grungy, cluttery and dirty my office was.
Thursday I started painting the two tables that make up my desk. I'm still working on them -- applying polyurethane. Yesterday I started priming the windows and walls. It's a big job -- mostly due to the incredible amount of stuff in there that I have to organize. And the cleaning. Ohhh the cleaning. And the painting the zillions of windows. I will post photos of them next time.
Like I said in my previous post I'm creating a room that is just mine -- where I can work, sew, write. It feels good even though I can feel my usual reluctance to finish a project. I can't wait to show it to you when it's finished.
