Live Porn




 Sometime over the weekend, THIS was me.
 Why, you might ask?
 Because last week, THIS was me...
measuring every square inch of Mom's new place and getting TONS of photos
as reference as we plotted, sketched, and drove cross-county
gathering supplies for redoing and refitting a house.
 In addition, there's this...
 ...and this...
...and this now part of my decor.

Not one to wallow or rest on my laurels, I decided a little venture into IKEA was in order.
Let's face it, I'll be doing some redecorating myself as we get some space back.
So let's go look at what's making me swoon.
 This is a room you could definitely recharge your batteries in.
 One thing I love about IKEA is their stellar use of every 
square inch of space. 
Storage to them is an artform.
This tiny space holds tons of clothes and accessories while still
not appearing cramped.
 That trunk is hefty, but airy enough to look light and take up very little visual room.
 And a closet that goes as vertical as possible is exactly what I need in a 1927 house.
The word "storage" was invented sometime after the 1970's.
We have none.
 Notice something about the lighting?
 Yep...all hanging.
Not one surface is wasted by it a table lamp.
 Shelves and boxes make me hot.
You can stash all of your little goodies, keeping them clean, without the clutter.
 The five of us share the upstairs bath, which is the size of a stamp.
This bright little vanity hugs the wall with a lip behind it for bottles and soaps,
and a sink wide and deep enough to accommodate two people at once
when the commute crunch crashes in.
 Staggering these shelves still gives you height possibilities
to store more than a squat little jar.
 Narrow halls hugged by a great shelf like this expand your choices.
 In tiny rooms, keep the floor clear and head for the rafters.
Who says horizontal bookcases have to be low?
Speaking of rafters, how fun is this pair of little lace buckets tied together
and tossed over one?
Some good trailing silks keep this down to occasional dusting to maintain.

You'll notice all the colors are whites, seaglass, and sky.
We're going to open up a few spaces in the house, so get ready for, 
and Monty Python would say,
"Something completely different!"

Great porn! I am so excited to follow your mom's renovation. I grew up with 4 people sharing a bathroom stamp, so I know exactly what you are dealing with.
