The attic room is not finished yet, but some work has happened in the room. A mirror was taken from the guest room, and hung over the chest. The good and bad thing about this room, is that the bedroom portion is only half of the room.
The room is large, and we have used it for storage.
It has been an unloved and uninspired room.
There is another part of this room, my old sofa, end tables. chair and entertainment center were placed here. Unloved leftovers taking up space. Daddy's old ladder made it's way to this room. It has a future as a shelf! This side of the room has electricity. There was still the problem of lighting for the other side.
I remembered that when we moved into this house, there was this light fixture in the dining room. It was missing a piece of glass on one of the lights, and one piece of the glass was broken.
My husband put the fixture in the barn at my request, where it has remained for 5 years. He removed the wiring, I gave it a coat of white spray paint. My new candelier will hang in the bedroom of the attic room!
We have also been working on another project, which is why the attic room is not completed, so there is my excuse. It seems that I have a problem focusing on one project at a time. I think that it is called ADD now. When I was a kid, ADD was unheard of, it was called not paying attention, and I got in trouble for it a lot!!
Now I can claim it as an excuse. Whatever the reason, my mind thinks of so many things that it wants to do, then I get excited about the prospects of a new project, and begin something new. I have to force myself to finish projects sometimes. Fortunately for the attic room, I am still excited about it! It will not be neglected.
My husband has heard his wife beg him to do this project for 5 years now. In order to stop the begging, he gave in. We had a back porch that deserved this project. This porch is just off of the kitchen, and the barn cats love to lie around on this porch. So it was never clean, and I couldn't have flowers there. Have I mentioned that we live in south Georgia? Meaning gnats, gnats, and more gnats! We thought that it would be nice to have a place to sit outside without gnats and other pests - meaning barn cats.
The porch will have room for a small table and my potting bench. My herbs will go on the porch and flowers that are barn cat free!! Ideas are bumping into each other in my head, but hoping to have this porch finished this weekend. I am so excited about this, the barn cats, well they know that something is up. They just don't know that it is an eviction notice!
