I promised I'd post some pictures of the Art Room today....
and here they are...
before I gutted the room.
Lots and lots of stuff.
Drawers from Ikea.
Paper sorters ordered online.
Red chairs found at THE thrift store 3 for $10 while shopping with my dear friend Trish.
Chandelier from my favorite yard sale EVER at my inlaws neighbor's home...
on the 4th of July...
I went over and drooled for a bit during the BBQ
and came back with it...
and a few other things...
Brads and eyelets all organized.
Letters organized in muffin tins, $.50 at the thrift store.
Gallery of artwork thanks to the kids.
All of their supplies organized in the toolbox and drawers.
The toolbox is staying on the counter.
It's amazing isn't it?
Found at the same sale as the antique broomholder featured in a previous post.
Another fabulous sale...at a family friends' home.
Why do I remember these things
but can't remember what my children are wearing,
or why I ran up the stairs
or what I need to buy at the grocery store?
Anyway, these are the before pics.
All that remains in the room now is my counter and a table.
Everything I'm keeping has been moved into the closet.
Even the bookcase.
And it's fabulous....
All of the organization has left me tired.
Too tired to go take the pics of the closet.
So tired I could stand and sleep here at the computer.
These pics aren't staged.
Izzy did not help me organize.
That's really not her thing...
just ask her sisters.
She played in the snow.
I don't have time to sleep and stand.
I need to get moving and open the cans of paint Mark bought yesterday between innings...
no that's not what they're called.
Those increments of time in the hockey game.
THE hockey game.
United States vs. Canada.
At least I know that much.
I didn't watch it.
I was gutting the art room.
He went out and bought the paint.
Now I better go use the paint.
So he can sit in the playroom and watch the next game.
Whatever that may be....
p.s. It must be another special day because my magic hairspray is still squirting!
