Right in the middle of muddling my way through, complete with chewing of fingernails and pulling of hair, my computer screen freezes. F$#^. For 5 minutes I tried everything I could think of (i.e., I unplugged it, then plugged it back in) Nada. Starting to panic. Starting to envision people I work with figuring out that I have no idea what I'm doing. Starting to envision my babies in rags, living under a highway overpass somewhere, because Mama couldn't pull this off.
You stupid m&%#%f&** machine, cut the s#@! and start working right f#$%ing now!
At this point the mild mannered professor who I didn't know was working in his office quietly pulled his door shut.
Luckily I got invited into old boss' shwanky-shwank-shwank office and got to work there for the day. Their computers work, without requisite swearing. It was magical.
Anyway, before all that, Mooch returned home last weekend and I got to reveal her re-vamped room to her. She looooooves it.
Here it is before - ok all that crap on the bed isn't usually there, I was prepping to paint and had taken stuff down, and then realized I should probably take a "before" shot. How bad is that white wicker shelf?
This is her little wicker vanity, and a chair I found at Goodwill that I've been meaning to re-do.
I still have to sew a little cushion for the chair, but I'm so happy that it matches the vanity now. To the left, on the footboard of her bed, I hung up a little organizer for all of her cards from friends and other stuff that tends to get lost.
Because her room is so tiny, I like to minimize how much she has hanging up so it doesn't look too cluttered.
Speaking of cluttered, she loves purses. The child owns probably 20, and they are all stuffed with her
I screwed hooks into the side of her bookshelf so she could keep them hung up and out of the way. I also added a hook to the shelf above her vanity, to hang up her favorite necklaces. I went hook crazy. I'm a crazy hooker.
Butterbean checking it out.
My artistically talented friend, Mrs. German, (name has been changed to protect the not-so-innocent) added this, since Mooch's favorite movie is "The Princess Bride"
How amazing is that?!?!
Be well ....
