What have I been doing for these last six weeks? My husband and I have re-done my scraproom and I just love it. It is in the basement and had wood paneled walls on three sides and just a block wall on the fourth. It really was hideous. He has told me for several years that if I would clean it out he would sheetrock the walls for me. Well here is what I was up against.
Lots of clutter and insanity. There was actually more than you see in these photos, I didn't take before pics but had these from a few years ago. I had acquired much more than just what you see here. I finally decided it was time to get this over with so I brought home many boxes from work and began the tedious task of boxing up all my stuff. We cleaned out the room and began the re-model.
My sweet husband added some plugs to my room...I went from having two to seven. After the sheetrock was up and mudded and sanded I got to paint. I chose Robins Egg Blue for my color.
I love this color...it is such a bright and happy color. Then began the chore of moving everything back in. It took me two weeks to unpack everything and find a place for it. I still have a few minor things to work on to get it just the way I want it.
I still need to hang some shelves on the wall for my wood mounted stamps and bring my sewing machine back in. I just love it now....sometimes I go down there and just sit at my desk and look around. I know, just call me a nerd....LOL. Now that this is near completion, maybe I can get my mojo back and get caught up on my scrapbooks.
