Have you been wondering where I have been and what I have been up to?
This was just the inspiration I needed to get me motivated again ... I have been waiting a long time to get to this project... you see it's MY bedroom.
After much thought and turmoil... I decided to finally step out of my primitive comfort zone and go a little wild this time. Afterall, it would be nice to have at least one room in my house from the twenty first century.
I bargain shopped till I dropped... because I don't know any other way. This time however I wasn't determined to make the Queen cry or settle on the "that will do" theory, because the price was right. If I loved it and it was reasonable, I bought it.. it was sure fun while it lasted.
Now, the time has come to get moving onto the manual labour part of this project. I am hoping to get a good portion of that done this weekend.
So there you have it... now you know what I have been up to. I really didn't fall off the face of the earth.
You say "WHAT! ...where are the pics?" Those will be coming soon. I promise not to hang you out to dry for too long.
The next step is to put everything in it's place...mark the holes I will be using... fill the holes I'm not... paint the room... pull it all together... take pics... blog about it... then relax and enjoy it.
