Punxsutawney's Prognostication- My Procrastination-

My Progress~!

I am following Donna @ Funky Junk Interiors workshop and this is my progress so far.

Funky Junk's Workshop Series

I couldn't get to the closet, that housed...who knew what!

The After : Clean out!

Once I opened these doors there was no stopping. I took out everything that wasn't nailed or screwed down and even took out a free standing shelf and wiped it down completely ( I put it back) I store paint and tools there now.

Now only shelves and tools and paint...

(the box is temporary) I will find something smaller to hold long upright things. I had this box and it fit the space for now. There are odd bits and pieces of wood, trim and paint roller handle standing in it for now. Hope to get a tall slender trash can or something. All those electrical cords are no longer hanging everywhere either (those were removed after the photo)

Before: Computer area ... This is moved to a new home in another room.


Wow! Those are windows.
They are dark, but believe me, the afternoon sun is beautiful.

Before: This - WHATEVER this mess is!

After: A work surface complete with drawers. All that junk on top of this table (except for the tin can with screwdrivers) got moved to hubby's shed. Well, not the telescope (in the long box). It is being used by some other star gazer, that maybe shops at Goodwill...*smile*

Ok my room is almost completely empty. Except for the few things I've put back to store. I've already begun trying to organize this space for work purposes. I have to paint and make it suitable for 'framing' ...lol! (or whatever else I decide to work on out there in my new workshop.

Now Keep in mind this is also my laundry room.
NOTICE: I did not include any new pictures of that space. I have plans to make that section nice -- but first things first!

This is slow going. But I am excited that it will be so much better than before.

Oh and what does this have to do with Puxsutawney Phil and his prognostication... well, if I'm gonna be inside due to cold weather... a girl needs to have a decent place to work right?
And... now I have an extra 6 weeks to get my room done. I just hope it doesn't rain anymore... so I can paint out there.

Don't forget to check out the workshop over at Donna's

It's inspiring for sure! I found you at Donna's! I'm trying to get my space cleared out too!

We are house bound too! Upstate New York, near Canada, where it snows all the time!!! No painting for this girl til May!

I'm hoping to reveal my space soon! Thank you!
