Desks Are A Must

I am constantly rearranging my workspace in the Creative Cave. It seems I figure out what works and doesn’t work, or could it be I get bored with the layout.

πŸ™‚

I decided my old desk was not working for my creative inspiration.

 

 

I love the desk but it was blocking areas that could be used for more stuff. You know that crafting stuff that sits and never gets used.

πŸ™‚

I did not get rid of it, the youngest son is using it in the other room for his computer. Works good for him. Lots of room for his snacks which he ignores to take upstairs when we tell him to. Grumble.

I am very thankful that my hubby is handy with making things for me. I am constantly finding something for him to do for me. Sometimes he jumps right on it and other times he does that selective hearing you know.

πŸ™‚

Glad to say this time he got right to my request of building me a simple desk area.

πŸ™‚

 

Loving it!

I wanted to add some flare to it, so this is what I came up with.

 

I used the same duck tape that I used on my art table. It also covered up the screws that were used to put it together.

πŸ™‚

I have been using the desk for a few weeks now and I do believe I have accomplished more. It has lots more room to clutter up anyway.

πŸ™‚

It also gave the room a wide open area in the middle so I don’t feel closed in. Perhaps, I will do some exercising there. Perhaps….

πŸ™‚

Hubby gives me a hard time by saying I have the whole basement practically besides his man cave. Yep, pretty true. LOL

Eventually, stuff will be whittled down and then I won’t have so many areas. Technically, I have three creative caves.

You snooze you lose I tell him.

Do you have a woman cave or man cave?

When Inspiration Strikes

I was planted on the sofa whenΒ a bright light bulb went off.

I can use the leftover green from the entryway to put some color above the fireplace. πŸ™‚

Yes! It will be like a frame for decorating for holidays.Β Someday I would like to change the tile on the fireplace to something more decorative but for now I like it.

I think it will look good. I have to do some touch up painting and then I will take a finished picture with decorations.

There is an outlet for a TV but I like using the mantel for decorating, mostly because the cats have not found a way to get up there, yet. πŸ™‚

I am slowly repainting the rooms. We bought the house last Fall and as we look closer at the walls we see the previous people did not match the tan color just right so there are spots everywhere. Eventually, all the walls will need painted. Weird thing is, there are no holes that they patched, so our guess is there were marks and they couldn’t get them clean or didn’t try. Funny.

Well, it worked other than when you are sitting and staring at the wall the spots begin to show. πŸ™‚ I do that a lot trying to decide how to decorate. I still do not have all our photos up. I’m a procrastinator. Big time. πŸ™‚

My inspiration for the green came from painting the entryway.

I will do a finished picture when I finish the artwork for this area. πŸ™‚ I have not decided on the color for the other parts of the walls. It will be a neutral color like the tan or I am thinking a classy grey.

I will plant my butt back on the couch and decide. πŸ™‚

Till later, have a great day! πŸ™‚

Thanks for dropping by!

Question? Who have you recently deleted from your contacts/address book?

2012

I really try to not delete anyone. It is normally them deleting me.

No one. I know others delete me and I don’t understand why. I’m harmless and a positive person. It is usually people I went to school with. I guess it is still a popularity contest or something. It is ok. I like me and that is what matters most. πŸ™‚
