There is no letting up of this winter's cold temprature and I've been sticking to doing things in the kitchen, the living room or the studio. My stash room clean up hasn't progressed, but I can't stand to be in the office to stay on the computer, either. So I've been reducing my stash by weaving! Imagine that!
Ben built these shelves in 2000 for yarns only so they were never reinforced for books and the numerous sketchbooks I've accumulated. Either we need to reinforce it now, or dismantle and rebuild, and we've been thinking out loud our options. I've always wanted the shelves under that tiny window so this may be the chance, but inexpensive/quick vs. not-expensive/pretty has been on my mind. It's been too cold to paint anything anyway, so I'm not rushed, but I am dismayed there is obstacles in every step of putting our house back into order. I'm feeling like President Obama; it took a few years for our house/garden to get this messy, so I can't fix it overnight. &^%$!!!
