Snowy Day

It was not the sort of day to cut wood. It was not the sort of day to sand and paint. No, it was this sort of day:


So, there was nothing for it. I just wanted to rearrange the furniture on the North wall a little. Stack the Ancient Ikea pine units, get the dresser out from under the dartboard. And so I did.
This is how the area looked when I started this project, 7 weeks ago:



And this is how it looked this afternoon, when I went downstairs to work on it:


Four (or so) hours later, we now have this:


Here's a close-up of the wall o' pine.

Before: (taken a few weeks ago. The dresser is out of the frame to the right).


And today:


When I was all done I looked at it: there's a lot of wasted space, there are a lot of things which could be weeded out (and this is the edited scrap supplies!), and I have no idea why I have all this stuff.

It is ready to be gone through again: sort and purge. But I think you'll understand if I say, "No, not right now." Another day, perhaps. (But hopefully not a snowy one!)

all I can say is "WOW!"

Pat yourself on the back for all you've done -- don't worry about how it's possible to do it even better.

Dealing with craft supplies is always an ongoing process anyway; can't be done in one round.

Thanks Colleen! I took heart from you comment before bed last night.
--and you're right Wende: just my perfectionism creeping in.

This all looks great- you have put so much work into it- be proud!
Sorry about the snow. I think we may be done now-at least I hope so because I shut down the furnace and capped it off for the summer already :)

If you had not documented this so well, I would respond that I don't believe it really is the same place. Good job.

Thanks J-Fer. That really help put it into perspective for me.
