Darn it, I know I should have taken some true ‘before’ pictures. But really, I’m glad I can’t possibly get back to where the attic was before I attacked it with a vacuum and some organization tonight. Just picture less twinkly lights and more cat fur embedded in the carpet. Ew.
Our apartment is awesome. The first floor has all the regular living necessities: kitchen, bathroom, living room, bed room. But then we get an entire extra floor, the same size as the rest of the apartment, to make art and music in. Yesss.
Tonight I spent time setting up the music area. This is about 1/3rd of the total floor space of the attic, the other 2/3rds reserved for my crafting (ay ay ay I can’t get this organized!) and my closet area. Music was an easy place to start.
So now, upstairs, we’ve got a place to make nice sounds. That seems like a pretty good luxury to me. If I can get it together again this weekend the next task will be cleaning up the closet/dressing area so that my mornings before work aren’t so hectic.
Then: the dreaded crafting area. I think I might actually need a different piece of furniture from what we have to make an actual work area, so this is the biggest challenge because I can never seem to commit to what will be the most functional.
Stay tuned for more improvements, and more pictures!
