I used a photograph from the February 2009 Veranda for inspiration (Carolyne Roehm).
Cushions were found in the pillow 'ho closet.
It's a start. I think. But I'll just be honest. The mess around this calm, quiet space is epic. Even though I love the space we created today, I'm having second thoughts (it's easier to be messy). Will order be restored? Really? Can I find a place for that big blue sofa? Will glue repair that pretty vase I broke while moving the desk? What about our 8 million books? Will I start a dish vs book war? And will vacumming all those dust bunnies break my central vacuum?
My mother says this is normal.
She says the idea of a task is bigger than the actual task.
Except I would add, make sure you have Motrin.
I only have a small window of time before I start back to work. So it's now or never. Organized or pigdom.
Stay tuned for next week's episode of Creating a Place to Blog when I make a bloggy hideout and start on the Dish Closet.
I'm linking to Susan, who has been my rock in planning this space. Visit her at Metamorphosis Monday for makeover ideas galore.
