We have now been in our new home 3 weeks and things are going well. Boxes all unpacked and now it is time to start on the ‘to-do” list to make this place more finished. The main level is pretty much done except I need to paint my bedroom as that is the only colour of walls in the house I do not like. But that’s not priority, especially since one of the walls in our bedroom is almost 14’ tall! I already painted our closet and that was a big enough job with the high wall on one side!
Living room still needs a rug, blinds and more pictures on the wall but it is cozy and functional. I’m happy with all the kitchen cupboard space and the island but now my lovely painted table and chairs don’t match this kitchen!
I have my longarm all set up but haven’t had time to use it yet. It will be nice to walk around both side of the longarm as I had it pushed to one wall in the Shack.
I am going to order some lower cabinets to have in that nook and use it as my cutting station and store clients quilt tops and finished quilts. I’ll move out the white cabinet that is sitting there and have a counter top and cabinets right across the area. I keep coming home with new cabinet and counter top samples as I keep changing my mind!
And here is the messy side which is a dumping ground right now but I think I’ll keep my sewing machine cabinet on that wall. Hope to have Tim make me an moveable ironing station at some point in the future and keep it along that wall. But his first job is to add more lights! There is only two pot lights in that whole space so we have ordered 4 more and he will install them as soon as they arrive! So we are making progress and hope to get back to sewing soon!
