The floors are clearing on the second day.
We added a cupboard that was stored
in the garage unseen and unloved.
We began storing crafts and supplies
in the two stacks
of vintage suitcases on each side.
There will be a comfy chair in this corner once
the walls are painted.
and another one here
next to second stack of cases
We began playing with trim options.
Paper/Lace or Ribbon trim?
I couldn't resist placing some Easter up here.
Books are moving to baskets on floor.
Up here for safekeeping now.
I'm voting for the paper one.
It is more work but more charming.
Cost of 3 paper rolls 6.00
Actually free since they were in my stash for
years and I donated to the cause..
I showed her with a small sample board
what "we" could make and insert behind mantel.
I left her a large vintage dictionary.
Homework for Annie, hehe
Storage areas above will be draped and hidden
once we make casings and hem panels.
Some more playing with treasures.
Arranging more storage.
The exposed baskets hold gift bags
and gift wrapping supplies.
At her fingertips but still pretty
So....progress on day 2
Schedules mean we work here and there
but we've rounded the bend.
and a flooring choice.
Not bad for a wee bit of elbow
grease and lots of
sorting by Annie.
Stay tuned for paint reveal.
