Yesterday DD-19 moved into her new room. Finally.
She’s been looking forward to it. She’d been complaining about things not going fast enough. But above all, she’s been working real hard on her room. She sawed, she drilled, she screwed, she hammered, she painted… you name it, she did it.
And even though the room isn’t quite ready yet, we schlepped her bed and other belongings up to the loft and placed them in her new room.
So many things still need doing, but at least she’s out of that cupboard sized room that was her younger sister’s first, then used to be hers and that will be doing double duty as my study and guest room before long.
Her build-in cabinet – not ready by far – but ready enough to hold her books and art supplies, is about twice the size of her old bookshelf, which she donated to her father.
And speaking of the DH, we’ve also been able to start furnishing his study. With DD-19’s old bookshelf and four more identical bookshelves (one of which used to belong to DD-14, who got a bigger cabinet instead of that bookshelf.
His desk is now also where it should be, so it will no longer be a pain in my behind in that corner by the window. Which is a good thing, as I still need to paint one of the walls there. And some woodwork, and…
Yes, you guessed it. Not nearly ready there either, but ready enough for now.
And so, with the hubby’s bookshelves and his gazillion horrid comic books gone, I finally got the bedroom back to it’s former glory.
I know, it will only be for a week or so, and then I will (temporarily) move into our new guest room, while the bedroom is being converted into our new TV/Entertainment room.
Only then – IF we’ve got enough money – will we be able to build our new bedroom in the loft. That is… after we got rid of the hubby’s hoard, because there’s still lots of clutter in the loft that needs to either find a proper home, of leave the house entirely. Because I will not put up with the CHAOS anymore. I’ve been living in the hubby’s chaos for over twenty years and enough is enough.
Now it is my turn!
