.New Project.

Hiya pals. So it's Thursday. And I really, really like Thursdays. Thursday's mean that there's only 1 day till Friday and we all know how great Fridays are. So yes, I really love Thursdays. This Thursday isn't really anything special (besides the fact that I just clarified), but I do have a HUGE project that I'm currently undertaking and this Thursday I am going to plan out my attack. And with a tight budget (not my favorite), I need all the planning I can get. So want to know what's my newest project?
A Creative Space.
And not just an Office. but a Craft room. A Library. And a Dressing room (of sorts). A space just for me. Not too much to ask for a itty-bitty room, right?

But, Ohh how I am in desperate need of a this new room. First of all, I absolutely love crafting, but with crafting comes a mess, and I certainly have that. You should see all the stuff I have. It's everywhere. In random boxes, bins, on the floor, in baskets, closets, EVERYWHERE! I also need an Office. For actual work (and some play). I just want the Library (reading a book in a big chair is a little bit of heaven). And the Dressing room, well read on....
So I have told the hubby that I am taking over the current home office/library (poor fella, it's also where his closet is located, as I have already taken over our closet in the bedroom too). My new space will still function as a working office for the days when I am at home (and actually working), but now there will be an element of happiness'll be a creative space. All mine. Enter if you dare, but you may be put to work (and I mean crafting work). Where do I begin to design this room on a limited budget?
I begin to make my list (god, I LOVE lists).
Items needed:
* 'L' shaped desk (leaning towards white and long/skinny)
*New paint on the walls (Going for a light grey)
*2 Office chairs (again, leaning towards white and sleek)
*Big comfy armchair/rocking chair (reading space)
*Side table with lamp (check: See picture below)
*New Bookcases (2 of them would do - I think)
*Inspirational pictures
*New Curtains (Colors? Patterns?)
*Storage (lots and lots of Storage-MUST)

So I guess I have some work ahead of me.......and Thursday has begun. :)
More white. LOVE!
Ohh, the storage and fun energy this room has!

Inspirational Words. Live by them.

My Room. My Inspiration. THIS IS IT!

LOVE this. So much.
