Begins The New Year & New Projects

The holidays are behind us and I spent a couple of weeks coming up for air, but now it’s time to get busy with this house again.  I am so close to being done with round one that I can taste it.  I say round one, because this is the round where I just get the basics done.  Walls painted, curtains hung…rooms organized…ALL the boxes unpacked and a little purging.  Round two will involve bigger projects like redoing floors, windows and finishing the semi-finished basement.

The project right now is my office/craft room.  I’ve been itching to get to this room for a long time!

I’ve started with the windows and getting them cleaned up.  There are two of these that meet in the corner, one facing east and the other south.  It’s a really cute arrangement and there’s a lot of natural light in here.  This room gets more light that any in the house.  Townhouses tend not to have a lot of light except at certain times of the day, so this room was the obvious choice for my craft room. 

I am almost embarrassed to show you the current condition of this room, but if I don’t, you won’t be able to appreciate how far this room has come when it’s all done.  I can’t even believe someone would let their windows get this dirty, but here is what they looked like before..


Is that disgusting, or what?  Took me about 2 hours to clean these up.  Below is the after.  Ahhhhh….I love clean windows!


Here’s the room I have to work with.  It’s a complete mess to any eye that might see it but mine.  I actually do know where everything is.  ::smile::






Now, close your eyes and try to imagine where I’m going with these curtains and wall color.  The trim will be white.  I’ll be posting more pics as I go through the process.


Lord, I love you so much.  As I begin a new week, help me to be kinder and more understanding to those around me as I make my way through this fallen world.  Put your loving hand over my mouth if I begin so speak negatively and remind me of who I am in You.  In Jesus name I pray….Amen
