Here is what the "shop" looked like when we moved into the house.
Pretty bad, right? Unfinished walls that resembled cardboard. A previous roof leak had left water stains. More "stuff" from previous owner (I have no complaints there; I love nothing more than pawing through a box of mystery items). Moldy, dusty carpet. Moldy, dusty everything. This room hadn't seen action in years when we walked in.
First we had to sort the stuff. Then for a time we had to use some of the space to store our own stuff. Meanwhile Jarred has been working around all the piles of things. This is how the shop looked from about November-well, last night night.
My crafting side is beginning to take shape
This old shelf we found in the blue bathroom is about to find new life in my craft area!
Jarred's side for his game console repair business
Lots of repair work to be done which, praise the Lord, equals lots of paychecks!
I am so proud of the "new" shop. It is a nice place to go and work when you need a little solitude. It's clean, bright, and airy. It smells good, too. lol I can hang with my man while he works or maybe find some time to begin my crafting again, since Jarred organized my area too. He even mounted that old bathroom shelf on the wall and repainted it to house my odds and ends. I really enjoyed running my two Etsy stores and have an awful lot of supplies just begging to be used. Now I can locate them and have a wonderful place to spread out and create. :)
Shelf is mounted and paint has begun.

my crafting side....DONE!
I think working here will be great.
And the shelf on the wall is working out just beautifully.
Thanks Sweetie! Everything is so nice and clean and organized.
Take heart those of you with fixer-uppers....we will get this done...one room at a time. And we will make ourselves PROUD.
