Outback Renovation

After remaining extremely unchanged* for an almost depressingly long time, it was time to breath a little new life into the Outback, my wonderful garage home. With a bit of construction, a few yard sale furniture finds, and Della's eye for form in addition to function, we've got ourselves a nice new nest.

The two biggest changes were a new bed(!)* and a new wall dividing the space into 2 "rooms". It's amazing how interior walls can make a small space seem bigger actually. Now Della's got a place to permanently set up her sewing and still have room for a mini office.

Otherwise, the changes have been minor: curtains covering our junk shelves, boxes upon boxes of cast-offs to the Goodwill, and new wall adornments. Some of my favorites are my framed pride and joy and my first attempt at a trinkets shelf. Fun!

I imagine the process will continue to evolve, hopefully with clearing out even more stuff and learning the systems that allow us to work in a small space. But I think it's safe to say, this is a huge improvement!
