So this past week, I finally made the decision to take the bull by the horns and make this change happen. I had a little additional leverage as my daughter and her husband will be closing on their first home tomorrow (YEAH! Get a wash machine, sugar, so you can stop bringing your laundry to Mom's house, ok?) and I just told the husband that they will need a bed for a guest room at their house (until there are kids) and the bed is hers after all! Yes, I know we bought the mattress. Yes, I know the bed was a hand-me-down, not truly hers. But come on - she slept in that bed for enough years to make it hers - like a common law marriage - and so to her house it will go.
So this weekend I, with the help of afore-mentioned daughter, rearranged and organized the room, removing the bed. Which is currently propped up in my living room. But it will be leaving our house soon, I promise! And now, not only do I have more room in the room but I also created a space for my husband to have his own desk where he can work on computers that he brings home as well as a place to set up his laptop cause he doesn't like to use his lap. Go figure. And we could even spend time together in the room - he paying bills, me making a card....yeah, it'll never happen but it might!
Here's a couple of photos of the new room "do":
My desk and workspace
This is another angle of my desk
This is the other corner across from my desk with more storage shelves
This is my husband's area - it will look better when I get a desk
Again, my area
Making me wait has it's price you know.
