Hi guys, sorry for such a late post. I have been catching up with tweets and blogs and home life since I was away most of the day with the RSA project.
Here is where we are so far
here is a pic of how one side of the room looked when I arrived this morning. Here is the same side of the room when I was leaving out
As you can see, the other bunk has been moved to that side of the room and the mother’s bed has been moved to the other side of the room
The plan is to flank the mother’s bed with two armoires. April plans to build one, and we will be using the one that is currently in the space. Both will be be painted white and the walls will be painted Nocturnal Sea by Behr Paint
To try and save a little money, I had planned to use a paint from Walmart, but while at the shelter, a rep from Behr paint called and asked for me! I had no idea they even paid that much attention to tweets, especially since I tweeted them weeks ago asking for help! Any way, the rep (Liz), asked me how much and what colors I needed for my space and now I have free paint that will be available on Wednesday to pick up!!! How cool is that?! I always say, you’ll never know until you ask!
Anyway, once both armoires are in place, it will free up the windows which will help bring more light into the space.
It’s funny, I swear that my room has the worse storage problem. I hate that I got the notice of my new space last minute, but you know, things are working out. I have adopted this motto
If it’s easy to do, it’s not worth doing!
More updates to come…
Thanks again to everyone who has donated to my room at the Nicholas House. I truly could not have done as much as I have if it wasn’t for you! As a matter of fact, I’m going to do a shout out post to all of my sponsors! If you would prefer to remain anonymous, send me an email
