The Green Room
Oh...to have a lovely garden room such as this!
It's overgrown on the inside as well as on the outside.
This one too...but in a less formal way.
The outside just comes right on in through the doors.
This would be the perfect art studio...which I need.
This one is actually an outside room constructed of old windows and doors.
A magical spot in the garden.
Yes, I have garden rooms on the brain. I'd love to have this greenhouse in my backyard.
Won't be long till I'll be pre-occupied with getting the yard in shape.
I do have my own little garden room of sorts...the breakfast nook which has a door leading out
to the deck.
This spring, I'll be painting my "to be" potting bench.
This is the spot where it will sit - right outside my backdoor.
The backdoor that needs to be replaced.
See the sliding door?...Soon to be replaced with french doors in the same color as the windows.
My deck is not very nice. But it looks good when covered in plants.
When my deck looks like this...it is a joy to be in the breakfast nook and go in and out to the deck.
But here is my ugly secret....
Since I didn't have time to paint that hutch last summer,
I didn't want to leave it outside where the elements would ruin it without a coat or several
coats of paint.
So it has sat in my breakfast nook all fall and winter waiting for me to paint it.
So I haven't been able to show a long shot of my dining room or living room looking that direction...
because there is a big piece of furniture and various other projects in the way.
I haven't been able to do a shot like this in months...because through the doorway from
dining room to breakfast nook...it's a pile of junk.
Not junk...just projects.
I also have an artist easel in there where I am working on paintings.
I would have moved that hutch to the garage but it is way heavy...way way way heavy.
I got it in the house and I'm not moving it any more than I have to.
It's going to be hard for me to move it around just to paint it.
So...my only garden room in the house...is full up with furniture and junk waiting for me to tackle it.
And the walls still need to be fixed and repainted.
you don't see what is just beyond the doorway.
But now that you know this...perhaps it will get me moving on painting that piece.
At least I hope so....
Don't hate me because I'm messy and a procrastinator....
Better done eventually than never done at all.
That is my motto.
