It did occur to me that a crappy old carpet isnt all that bad to have in there! I certainly wont worry if i drop clay bits or paint, lol. The room transformed into my favorite space. I go sit in there and instantly feel peace. I got collage frames to put up, a world map and 2 cork boards. I want some better lighting eventually. Oh yeah...and i bought a radio/cd player too.
The new shelves will hold my sewing stuff.
It is a far cry from the dream room i envisioned but im so very pleased in spite of that.
I use my regular oven since my dedicated oven kicked the bucket.
Ill show more as it is completed. Or better...you could come join me for a personal tour :)
