I’ve HAD it. We’ve done next to nothing all summer because it’s been so blasted hot. But I don’t care. Soon winter will be here and I won’t be able to do anything except huddle around my little heater. So despite the scorching heat wave that hasn’t really ended since it began in May, I am going to DO something around here. I’m going to remodel my living room/office. I can no longer tolerate the boxes (and boxes) of books, the stacks of papers all over the floor, the furniture crammed into the corners. I’m gonna remodel!
We intend to paint the walls, sew and hang new (brighter, lighter) curtains, and create a monster built-in bookshelf along one wall. It’s my very first bookcase unit ever, so be praying for me, lol.
Here are some before photos to tantalize your curiosity.
The bare wall once held a couple of those cheapo Chinese particle-board bookcases, the kind you get at Walmart. We cleared everything out last night. They were starting to sag tremendously under the weight of my aged and dusty tomes. My new bookcase unit will tower to the ceiling, sport little lights and look fabulous. At least, that’s how I see it.
Like I said, please be praying for me!
