The Sitting Area: There was no sitting area before. I took a chair that sat adjacent the couch, the bookshelf behind the couch, and the trunk that was under the coat rack and put them together. Now all I need is some art work above with a lamp and voila! A cozy sitting area.
Next, I decided to work on the mess that was the computer area. I removed the coats and scarves from the coat rack and hung glass jars from the hooks to use as storage space later for pens/pencils and nick knacks that usually lay atop the computer desk.
This is what happens when a lady gets bored throughout the day...And by the time I finished making things look beautiful, Meredith had made a bunch of artwork and an owl mask, which began as a snow flake, and dressed herself in brown so she could be an owl for the day. She really is creative. Here's what she made:
I know the owl face looks a bit scary, but you can probably see how it evolved from a snowflake. If you look closely, you can make out the eyes, ears, and nose in purple. The feet are at the bottom in purple. When Mer showed me I couldn't help but giggle to myself. My baby is too funny and she doesn't even know it yet. Big smile.
Here's to what boredom will do to you.
