Who have I been kidding?
I’ve said that I haven’t been doing any projects because I’ve been, um, short on funds (ie, broke), but seriously that’s no excuse. Because it doesn’t cost anything to clean. And boy does my office/studio/loft need a good cleaning.
I should really be embarrassed to post a pic of it here, but since I have no shame (in addition to no money), here goes…
OK, this is an old pic, so it’s not quite this bad. But bad enough.
So I decided that until I can scrape up some cashiola for my next project, I will begin the massive undertaking of cleaning my office/studio/loft space.
I started at the entrance of the loft space with Megan’s desk.
Megan’s desk is so named because it was a desk that I trash picked from my former neighbor Megan’s house when I lived in California. Now almost 7 years later, we still call it Megan’s desk. Kind of an endearing name for a desk.
Here is Megan’s desk, in all of her cleaned up glory…
Isn’t she loverly? (The chair I picked up from Target a couple of years back.)
If I recall correctly, the desk was Ethan Allen that Megan dared to paint a creamy white. Also if I remember the story correctly, Megan may have had to revive her mother when she found out that she had painted classic furniture. Of course I adored Megan for that and many other reasons!
At some point, Megan was ready for said desk to move on, and she was living across the street from a trash picker at the time. The rest was history.
Until last weekend, Megan’s desk was loaded up with crap, basically a repository for things that needed to be moved, stored, donated, or thrown. So I cleared it out and here she is.
In fact, now that she’s all available again, I may have plans for her elsewhere in the house in the future. But first things first. I still need to finish cleaning the rest of this space, even if it takes all winter.
And at the rate I’m going it might. But I’ll share the embarrassing pictures every step of the way!
