I have never shown you pictures of the Old Sleeping Porch.
Of ALL the parts of our house…when we moved in….it was in the WORST shape…AND
has undergone multiple metamorphosis AND served many purposes.
|…there are good bones…the bead board ceiling, wood floor..
…around Year 3…
I went through 50 tubes of caulk and a couple gallons of paint…cleaned it up a bit
.and made it into a makeshift guestroom…
In these big OLD houses, sleeping porches were sort of indoor -outdoor rooms…which were used during the HOT months….for sleeping. In addition, our room has a staircase which goes down to the
back porch and served as an entrance for the farm help…a century ago.
But last week…the room and all of it’s ISSUES was bumped up in the PUNCH LIST line.
During Hurricane Sandy I went back to check on a broken window and discovered
water pouring in…I mean POURING in
all of the windows…
Sandy gave new meaning to the phrase…
…so now…what do I do?
I have to wait for it to all dry out…
Next I think it is time to make the room into my STUDIO…!
Presently this is where I PAINT AND store all of my supplies…
with the “new” kitchen underway…I need to move my workspace…
I just got THE NEW BOOK
CREATIVITY AT WORK
Heather Clarkson OF HABITUALLY CHIC
and I am inspired to make a space which is ALL mine.
One that does not require
constant cleaning or the moving of food!

This is my silver lining…
