The move

I came home from work feeling motivated. Maybe not so much  when facing all I had to do to make this move happening…

1

No sitting down today…

2

Some time during the cure I will be told to clean the bed so I did this since I had to move the bed anyway. One more thing to cross off the list.

This will be my bedroom for some time. I do think it will be too ambitious to plan for a new bedroom before the end of January. Since I`m not sleep well anyway at the moment I am pretty sure this will do…

3

Not the best view but at least the room has a window…

4

My old bedroom has no longer any need of shutting the light out so the curtains have to go…

5

That`s the easy part. The real challenge is to dismantle. move and put back together my work table…

6

Because of the narrow space between the rooms this is not an easy move…

7

I did give up a couple of times 🙂

I was planning to paint this room but this is not the brightest room in the house and I do like white. I bet there will be very little open space when I am done. For now this is it…

I am back online and now the real work begin…

…because now I have to deal With the mess I left behind – in two rooms. Good thing today`s assignmentet fits the one I choose to do the first day.

January Cure 2018 | The Project

Why pick a small project when you can pick a massive one?

A bedroom made into a craft room | A craft room made into a bedroom.

Today`s bedroom…

This room is about the same size as my craft room…

The problem with this room has been the noise from the machines on this side of the house. Now I have an even bigger problem outside my bedroom.

The first thing I need to do today is finding a place for my bed other than in these two rooms. That should be doable.

Then I need to decide if I want to paint…

Do I want to go safe with grey or do I want to match my hallway and go pinkish? Do I want to paint at all?

It is fun to look for inspiration…

…but I don`t plan to spend much money if any.

Inspired

So – moving stuff around…

I have never been happy about the sofa against the wall but I have not had the energy to do anything about it.

I was all over it when I came home from work today…

 

I am much happier now.

There are some things to correct but I want to live with this for a few days.

Keep in mind that I do love my photo albums:) I am sure it would be more stylish without but love is love.

Good thing tomorrow is the day we work on our project because now the rest of the house is a project in work…

The kitchen and living room is fine but in the process I messed everything up in four other rooms. Project anyone ?

Now I am sitting down with my crochet project and find something nice to enjoy on Netflix.

The living room

Today`s task – Lighten up the living room.

Looking around for inspiration I found this on the IKEA site…

…with the text: Move your sofa around for variation.

I have never been happy about the sofa close to the wall so I might go in to the moving around stuff this weekend…

Of course – then I will have to move my Kallax back in to the living room 🙂

One more box to go…

January Cure | Week 3

This week has a lighter work load…

  • Plan a get-together – not doing that.
  • Lighten up the living room – there are some dust to deal with.
  • Work on your project – don`t have one (yet).
  • Bathroom cabinet cleanout – done.
  • A better bedroom – well, my bedroom do look a little sad.

So – bedroom is up for next weekend. Good thing it is my weekend off 🙂 I am thinking paint – or maybe I can turn the bed around again…

I did not plan to work on my long forgotten mess up in the attic. For those who remember – the attic where the girls played house last January…

Still – I have been working up here these last two weeks and this is the last box filled up with what can be called “low hanging fruit”…

If I can move one thing downstairs and out every day this week I might be able to finish. So I guess that is my plan for the start of week three. Besides declaring war against the dust in the living room.
