Oh, carpet! You speckled abomination from 1995, your time has come!
For the past three years, this space has been the locus (and beneficiary) of many creative pursuits. I've painted it a color I love, filled it with things I love... Nevertheless, for three years I've kept one thing around that I truly, truly hate: the floor.
I've investigated the edges and vents around the room enough to know that this floor is like seven layer dip. Since '39, assorted flooring materials have been installed in this room, but none has ever been taken out... like a 72-year-old seven layer dip, comprising polyester loop carpet, polyester shag carpet, tar, adhesive tile, plywood, and probably a layer of wilted iceberg lettuce. Today, it all goes.
So long carpets one and two.
Tack board and quarter-round, begone!
A promising peek...
"Sewing Room," while sweet and old-fashioned, is mostly a misnomer, since a room facilitates everything from writing to carpentry. "Craft Room" just feels demeaning, and "Studio" is equal parts cold and pretentious. For now, I'm mostly satisfied with "Project Room," but it's kind of a mouthful. Your thoughts? What do you call your creative space?
