Here's a corner that evokes both guilt and excitement for me. Several times a day I walk in just to flip the dimmer switch and grin with a shiver of excitement. I have my very own new workroom!
Until recently this closet in the corner of our bedroom was the Kiddo's room. We kept the blue ceiling and wall as well as the green floor, area rug, and shelving from this closet's previous life. Just two coats of creamy white paint, some shelving, and a little wooden stool and I now have a cozy corner in which to do my sewing and a place to store a lot of craft materials. I couldn't bear to watch while Todd painted over our beloved dogs, but the result was worth the pain.
I'm still hoping to find a local retailer for Homosote so I can make a big bulletin board on the left wall a la Martha Stewart, and then I'll be all set!
