a clean slate and a new project

I decided on which project I would give the green light to next and have already started the prep work.  It required cleaning out one persons music room (my husband's) to make space for what's to come.  He is such a good sport and only rolled his eyes once or twice when he heard my plan. 


Of course clearing out his things meant finding a place for them as well.  It took a little creative thinking but we managed to carve out a nook for him in our bedroom.  He usually ends up with his guitar in there anyway so he wasn't too badly displaced.

After a good cleaning, scrubbing down of walls and a little touch up paint, I have a clean slate to work with.


I used to be intimidated by an empty room or a blank canvas but now I love it.  In fact, when I start revamping a room I will usually remove everything from the space and start fresh even if it means moving the furniture right back to where it started at.

I don't want to give away too much today, so I will leave you with these pictures of the one piece of actual furniture that is going in the space and leave you guessing.


I have the house to myself all day tomorrow so I am hoping to get a lot accomplished.  Be back with the reveal soon enough!

xo, Patty
