Impossibilities Challenge-My Game Room

January 31, 2012

Two weeks ago I signed up for the Impossibilites Challenge in an effort to re-energize myself into completing a project that had been stalled since last fall. You can read more about the history of my game room here.  
Well, I am happy to say that the challenge was exactly what I needed to complete the project.  As I mentioned , I work best under pressure. Always have.  As a result, last Friday I had surgery on my hand to repair some tendons that have been damaged partly because, yes you guessed it Pressure to get projects done! 

So, with one hand and the help of my hubby, I finished the project over the weekend.
  Remember, this is where I started

And the space today


I hope you like the space, not out of pity because of my injury, but because you think
it 's a pretty cool space too.

Am I challenging myself to the Impossible?

January 18, 2012

A few weeks back one of my favorite blogs Thistlewood Farm was hosting a  2012 Imagine the Impossibilities challenge  - a challenge in which you  tackle some undaunting task.  I thought " well, I have a few of those around here" and quickly raised my hand. Well, it has only taken two weeks to show you the challenge, and I only have two weeks left, so hopefully this all turns out good.
By the way, you should know that I work best under pressure .
So here's my task - My Game Room

This was not the original color of the room (the original color was in the beige family- haystack) . My husband said my hormones were in overdrive when I choose these colors, since this was right before having our first child.  I then decided the blue and green were not for me (and still are not today) and repainted the room...
When will I learn my lesson?
Well , about a year ago I repainted the space from Red to Creamy Mushroom . Funny how things come full circle, even with paint choices ( since I'm going back to the beige family). I seemed to have lost my mo-jo somewhere around last fall to finish the space. The way I look at it, if my kids don't care/notice that the room is several different shades of color and furniture is stacked in the center of the room, why should I!
Next Wednesday I will share more updates on my progress.
Clock is ticking till the room reveal on January 31st!
