CHAGRIN AND BEAR IT, PT 2

Okay. Time to let a little more of the cat (poor thing!) out of the bag. There was a reason I showed just my sewing table in “Chagrin and Bear It, Pt 1”. I didn’t have the courage to show the whole room!

I’ve been working on that room for days, and I’m starting to think there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. And it is not the headlight of an oncoming train, either!

Ready? Here's where I next took action:

It went from that to this:

And from that to this:

That top tub is going elsewhere!

After that, I figured it was time to tackle some floor:

It soon looked like this:

And then this:

Yay!

Now, there were some comments on that first post to the effect that the mess wasn't so bad. I suspect that is truly because I'd shown so little of it! The good news is, I'm making real progress. The bad news? The worst is still to come!

PS Did you notice the lovely chest in the third picture, the one with the unusual drawer hardware? DH and I picked that up at an estate sale for $2.50, delivered! It had a badly broken drawer, and a missing drawer pull, so my lovely DH shortened the dresser, turned it from a five-drawer chest into a four-drawer. I love the chest, and ardently admire the DH's talent!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who resorts to the floor when I run out of space!

Great find on that chest!!! And great that DH could help fix it :)

Very Nice. And I love the teamwork you two have. I've missed you. Computer woes and all I had was a monitor for nearly a week! all is well again. Peace, Mollye

ps I sent a few (because I wanted to keep most) of the cards out and got so many great comments over them.
