Before: as soon as the boxes arrived, all I wanted to do was get rid of the carton.
After: by moving the desk to the window and leaning the bed to the side, it immediately opened up the room. Yay, more space!
I thought it just made perfect sense to work in natural light. Pickle will be sharing the desk with me to bird-watch and test-driving the machines that I bought online... (Curtains and funishing came with the house.)
The solid wooden planks on this shelf have aged really well. How about that boombox? I won it on eBay as the only bidder -- don't people listen to CDs anymore? And I know, my display lacks finesse. But it's only temporary.
Everything has been put in its place. Now, the next part is to start crafting and messing it all up. I have no idea what I will do as my first New Jersey project; I just know I don't need to buy more stuff.
And you know what? Who's that lucky person that won this 4-yard fabric on Erika Made It's giveaway?
Me. Thanks so much, Erika! I still can't believe it. What shall I make with it?!? :)
