But I think I'm finally getting somewhere.
And so I present....the only tidy corner of the entire house.
The table is new (to me) and I plan to paint it. Green maybe? And the chair too (not green, maybe cream). But for now this space is functional and the painting can wait for another day.
The two giant baskets sitting on the floor are full of WIPs. I plan to do something about those too.
The typewriter was inherited from my Grandparents (because I was going to be the journalist in the family).
The spice rack, the biscuit tins and most of the other storage is from the op-shop.
The bookcase and the tallboy thingo are poached from other rooms in the house.
You can spot what's from IKEA.
The thing I love most about this new space is that (in theory) I can sit and sew and watch the kids playing in the backyard.
But it's only a matter of time before someone gets a pin in their foot or the baby pulls all the fabric from the shelf or I get divorced because Chris can't hear the TV over the noise of my sewing machine.
