Wouldn't you love to just curl up and....

There are days when I wonder why I am so tired, then I remember:
  1. I am out of the house working 12 hrs a day
  2. I am going to school at night studying Interior Decorating
  3. I have weekly design plates to prepare, a research project and a final   client project to prepare
  4. I am redecorating my home office paycheque to paycheque (blogging about is keeping me on track with a timeline)
  5. We've just added a new puppy to the mix.
It's days like this when I would just love to curl up with a good novel or design magazine.  I came across this one at simpledetailsblog.blogspot.com and thought that this is where I want to spend the day with a nice hot cup of tea.

Paycheque #1: Office Remodel

 I work full time and study interior decorating part-time.  I am almost finished and will soon have my certificate of Interior Design.  It seems to me that everyone I talk to would like to re-decorate their space but either don't have the resources or really don't know what to do.  Here's and interesting concept.  Paycheque to paycheque decorating.  Follow the transformation of a spare room in my home into an amazing home office, paycheque to paycheque.  

My first purchase is paint.  Two gallons of Sherwin Williams 6766 -Mariner Blue

Stay tuned for photos of the painted walls  and I will let you know what  my next paycheque purchase will be.
