GO BOOM!

 


In other news, I pivoted yesterday and instead of painting the rest of the office, I lugged the big honkin' butcher block bench from the kitchen into the office and then the little white wheelie cart thing, from the office to the kitchen.

Now there's a neat L-shaped for the desk which holds the printer yet keeps the printer out of the way too. And as an added bonus, there's a little Christmas tree on the table too.

Win, win.

After Smoochie Face finishes putting the last of his books back on the wall, we'll move the photography gear - lights, soft box, C-stand, cameras - onto the far wall. 

This office has excellent natural light or, shut out the one window and use artificial light. This room no longer houses a couch, TV and big bean bag because those got moved into the snug. Now, this office is for writing and photography. A proper work room. 

Cannot wait. 
Cannot wait.
And wait for it ....
Cannot wait.

Pictures to come. 

Catch you Boogerbutts again soon. 
PS: I LOVE being back to blogging. 

Whisk, out.

  1. We redid my art studio area last winter. Getting rid of one wall brought in so much light. O hope you get your project done soon and share it with us too.

    1. Hey Erika! I love that you brought in that much light. That's excellent. Will share for sure. Very fun to work on the house. Isn't it nice to have a studio. So cool that you have an art studio. I love that.

    1. Hey Jan. It happens from time to time though this is the first I had two in a row. New sealing ring did the trick. So far. Happy Weekend and boogie boogie.

  5. I know people who have big butcher block benches and I've always wanted one. I've seen smaller ones on wheels so they can be easily moved to where you want them, that seems a handy feature.

    1. Hey River! Butcher blocks are fun. This one is super long and we attached it to USA made hair pin legs. Really fun. It was part of Tim's office, then the kitchen, now back in the office. I have teeny bakers rack with wheels that has a cutting board across the top. Super useful. Handy, like you said for sure. How goes your day? Eat anything yummy this week?

    1. The first one was just steam. The second one took two big dog towels to clean. Replaced the sealing ring. All good to go for now. Happy Weekend!!!

  9. No instapot explosions here. I actually gave mine away. Nothing like moving some furniture around to make a room brand new.

    1. Hey Ann! Glad none at your house. Do you like to slow cook instead? Oh yeah, we are the same. There's something refreshing about moving a space or in today's case, spaces. Happy Weekend.

  10. Can't wait to see your new work space! The cleanup of IP explosion would be a nightmare for me :-((

    1. Hey Angie! Gonna be so fun for photos because now, the camera is tethered to the desktop. So when a teeny tiny dog hair sits on a doughnut, I'll see it right away. The first explosion just steam. The second took two big dog towels to clean up. Changed the sealing ring to a new one and so far, good to go! Happy Weekend.

    1. It's true. Takes us time for sure. And, we moved three big things out of the this room which was soooo helpful. Glad you never had any issues with your InstaPot. That's good. I however, have killed most all my electric tools from use.

  15. Oh butcher block bench!! I love anything butcher block. I have so many dreams of a kitchen island with a butcher block top, for storage and a place where I can prep food without having to squeeze into my little space! Adding it to the wish list! ☺

    1. Hey Rain! This one was a desk for Tim that he didn't need and I used and then I didn't need and gave back because I made my own. Pictures to come. So easy and fun to make. And you get to style it any way you want with whatever storage you want. And the size that fits the space. It's heaven.

  16. I don't have room to obtain anymore kitchen appliances. It is rare that I even use my crockpot. I always marvel at the things you create with modern gadgets. Like Mary Kirkland, I am glad you are back to blogging.

    1. Very cool on the slow cooker. I have my eye on one that's made in the USA. Should be a fun tool to play with. Thanks for stopping by today. Boogie Boogie to you and the gang.

  18. I'm glad you're back to blogging, too, Ivy! I have to say... I thought I was going to hear a horror story about Instant Pots. First I was relieved there didn't seem to be one, then I see in comments that there evidently was. Gee - makes me less confident of mine. Glad you resolved your issue. Looking forward to see what you're up to now!
