I must admit, I'm finding it difficult. But have I just lost my mojo?
Folks, this ill-used, back-of-double-garage, cockroach infested once-storage room is destined for great things. And soon. Because Bubby Makes Three is literally taking over my house and I literally. cant. cope. any more!!
Its the length of a double garage and a few metres wide (do you love how I have measured it out so accurately?). I can't find my measuring-tape. Fern was 'measuring the lounge' and then it disappeared. Into Fern's abyss. grr.
Yesterday, the space was ransacked. We took everything out - everything that was left from our recent ebay pillage, that is! We ripped up the carpet (I use the term 'carpet' loosely!) and I stood at one end trying to work it all out. And struggled. I'm still struggling.
This is what it looked like before we cleared it out (and bear in mind, I've not let anyone see this room in 5 years so its a big deal for me to be broadcasting this disaster zone across the internet!!)
|...and that end|
Does this look like a beautiful, creative space just waiting to happen?
Help, folks, someone is coming over tomorrow to give me a quote to build walls and plaster bricks and the like, and I have no idea what I'm asking for!
What would you do if this was YOUR space and you needed 3 rooms in one? Got any inspiration you can send me or refer me to?
Thanks in advance!! x
ps. I do have paint. Bought it a few weekends ago. Dulux were giving away a tin of jelly-beans with every 8 ltrs sold. SOLD, folks! Nope, didn't bother with test swatches. Got Dulux Lexicon half-strength just because it looked bright and white and merrily carried it and my tin of jelly beans away from the store. Wondering how long it takes to inhale a tin of jelly-beans? In case you think that is about a years-worth, think again. I literally ate my way through a tin of jelly beans in two weeks flat. Even the black ones. Them I went and had a filling put in my mouth. But it was worth it... damn good jelly beans, they were........ x
