This is a big space, larger than his current bedroom. Jesse's bedroom is the other half of the upstairs. Since he's away at college, we figured this was the right time for the move. The only thing this room is used for now is for Jesse's friends to crash in when he's home on break (thus the pile of sleeping bags in the middle of the room). We actually have an entire guest apartment for them to sleep in (with a bed), so I don't feel too badly about taking away their guest suite.
Most of the junk in the photo will be tossed out. We bought paint today, and I'm hoping to get the first coat on tomorrow. Duncan picked "cosmos blue" for the ceiling and "antiquarian gray" for the walls.
And I'm getting an office! I haven't even really processed what that means for my life. Partly, this means that all the paperwork on our kitchen counters will be moved into an actual office, perhaps into actually drawers and bins. And I think I'll even be able to put up—and keep up—my sewing machine. And have a quiet place to write and a comfy chair for conversations.
After we get Duncan all moved into his new bedroom, I'll post photos of his current room, which will be the office. I am kind of excited about that room a complete overhaul!
But first, I have a whole lot of wall to paint, starting tomorrow!
