Well we are still in full Christmas gear here getting ready for next week’s photoshoot, and we have been trying to finish up my workroom. I really didn’t want to show you the room until it was finished (which it is not) but I thought you might like to see a few “sneak peeks” of some of the progress that has been made.
I told you we were painting the desks, and you can see from the photos that they are a khaki color like the upper beadboard walls, and my husband backed the desk unit with beadboard to further tie in with the room.
I have gotten the upper cabinets organized with boxes holding my collection of ribbon. (Yes, I am a hoarder of ribbon!)
And from the peek in the closet you can see I am also a hoarder of fabric and drapes
(and checks of every color.)
The cabinet is not quite finished. Drawers are painted, and doors are waiting on hinges. (They are to be here via FedEx tomorrow.) The countertop is almost finished for it, but I have thrown an electrical problem with an outlet placement to my husband, so he is currently pondering that.
I was able to go ahead and move all my storage bins in there while he worked on the drawers and doors for it.
I had ordered 2 chairs for the desks from Joss and Main about a month ago, and they were supposed to be delivered tomorrow. Unfortunately, they have run into a problem and won’t be able to get them to me until early February. When the chairs arrive, I will do a full post on the room with a list of sources for you.
And that is all the snooping around in the room we are going to do for now.
I also wanted to pop in to talk about a few things….
First, thank you for all the nice new year’s wishes that so many of you sent me. I appreciate every one! Secondly, I apologize that I have not been answering email and responding to comments for the last month. Between the upcoming photoshoot (and video tour filming) and all the illness that has run rampant here, getting anything done has been quite challenging. My father in law is still in the hospital (almost a month now). He has become quite tired of it and is dearly wanting to go home. Hopefully they will work out something for him very soon. I should probably also let you know that my respiratory illnesses managed to do some bad things to my heart so I am going on a medicine for it, and I have to give up all caffeine products. Thank goodness for decaf coffee! Anyone know of a decaf chocolate????? It is a sad day when I have to give up my beloved chocolate.
I just wanted to say thank you for hanging in there with me and being patient when it takes me forever to answer your questions whether they are in a comment or an email. I am planning on catching up with everything blog related during the MLK holiday weekend. I hope to get a weekend post out this weekend if possible, but a huge load of greenery will be delivered here Friday,and hanging all of it is going to take awhile. Please keep your fingers crossed we get everything finished by the time of the shoot. And I would appreciate it if you would keep my father in law in your thoughts and prayers as well please. Thank you bunches.
Until next time…
