My Work Room...
... the goal: to clean, paint, organize each & every little
piece of "junk" that I might do something with some day
& decorate without spending any..., "nada"..., "zippo"
Finally! It's done, completely organized... for now
... until the mess begins again!
I painted the walls & the trim with paint
left over from other projects. It might not of
been my color of choice, but it didn't cost anything!
It cleaned & brightened up the room.
Couldn't do with out my "To Do" board!
Dusted off & drug in the old filing
cabinet from the garage. Idea magazines, patterns
all filed away according to seasons!
Paint in a shoe pocket organizer! Can find
the color I want in an instant!
Paint brushes all in one place!
A lazy susan organizer with "odds & ends"
at my finger tips.
Jars with game pieces, easily found.
My beloved Bernina sewing machine...
I've had the "old gal" 20 years this July!
How do I remember when I got her?
It was a birthday gift on my 30th birthday.
My sister-in-law up graded the sewing machine I had,
my husband gave me a diamond ring in a Cracker Jack box
(we had already been married 9 years!)
and there were clowns at my party!
Pretty hard to forget!
Yarns in a great big old wooden bowl.
Buttons sorted in old jars.
O.K. ... I broke my promise to not spend any money.
My $80.00 iron broke... so I bought this old gem
at a garage sale for .... drum roll please...
It works great!
A dresser from the furniture pile in the
garage. My DH finished it for me.
So many drawers!!!! I love it!
An old cork board was given some style
with odds & ends of scrapbook paper.
The Watchhorn Square sign is one I brought
with me from California. It came from
Ports A Call in San Pedro, CA.
It's always been a keeper!
Now to get working... and try to keep it this way!
Check back with me after
the Fall & Holiday Season to see how I did!
