I read somewhere that we should not be ashamed of taking pictures of our messes because we can always pass them off later as "before" pictures. Aren't we always just works in progress? Hopefully always getting better? This is our dumping ground bookshelf, where things that don't have a home find a resting place. Like empty computer boxes and long red wigs.
And here is the middle of our little computer room. The walls are the same beige-y tan as the rest of the house. In 40 years, this is only their third coat of paint. My folks were never much for colors on the walls. The carpet is the original 1970s green shag. It's not staying, just in case you were wondering. The boy is moving out, too, during the renovation, but I think we'll put him back in when we are done.
To the left of the bookshelf is a little closet. To the right of the hutch is the door. And that's the whole room! Next time, it will look different.
Hopefully, different in a good way.
