Right now I’m probably making everyone nuts since my current office is the middle of the dining room table.
I do have my computer set up in my bedroom, but I need an office where I can sit at a table and take care of garden plans, a sewing station and a place for crafts and stuff like that.
The new location for my office will be where we are sleeping right now.
I make myself crazy sometimes with the way I change my mind. For me, its just not possible to think of every single detail when it comes to how we use space.
I never really thought about how much I needed somewhere to sew, or that I need a drafting table. So I’m in the process of thinking of my needs. What a concept right? I simply don’t think of the things I need until I’m knee deep in some project and suffering for a lack of creative space.
The photo to the right is of the color blue I chose for my new work environment.
We also looked at floor samples for the dining room, our bedroom and the two bathrooms.
I’m going to have fun designing these new spaces.
I’ll be also designing a play area for Simone in each of my spaces.
I want Simone to be able to paint, draw, and do little projects as I work during the day. She’ll have her very own nook.
We decided on a very light blue for our night stands. I was unsure up until this morning at breakfast about what color to paint them.
We bought the paint for our headboard and foot board. I’m not a fan of hunter green any more and that’s the color that’s on the head and foot boards. I’ll be spray painting it black but leaving the brass finials as they are.
I’m still debating whether to buy silk sheets and a duvet or for me to just order the silk in bulk and make the sheets and duvet myself. I haven’t found a good source for mulberry silk yet that has a width of greater than 52 inches. If anyone knows, please leave a comment and a link to a distributor.
As I write this Dom is finishing up putting the panels on the greenhouse. Its almost done!
I was going to write about making powdered eggs today, but I’m going to wait until after I’ve made them in two different ways. I’ll report back on the eggs sometime this week.
Oh! And I finally found an patio set I actually like, plus I like the fact that there ceramic tiles that can be changed to something else if we get bored of tile color.
The umbrella for the table and chairs is awesome too, although I don’t think we’ll need an umbrella since a pergola will be erected in the courtyard. It might be nice to have the umbrella until the pergola is built, because I have no idea when that can possibly happen this year. LOL
Once the pergola is built, the umbrella could be used in another area of the courtyard to keep the sun off of Simmi.
