this is what has been keeping me up nights

I have been so busy getting my little room at The Cottage ready. Here are lots of pictures of how it looks. Sorry they didn't all turn out very well but hopefully you'll get the idea...

Here's the view from the doorway...




This little room is really a bathroom. Hopefully you couldn't tell. :) Here are some shots of how I solved the problem of having a vanity sink in the room. I put two wooden drawers over the sink, one leaning on a diagonal behind the other...



To camouflage the toilet, I built a tiered wedding cake inspired thingy.


I hung greeting cards by mini clothes pins...



I made the letters that spell out "Inspire Me" (which is what I decided to call this mini location of Inspire Company)


More views...



And here's the fun thing that I made for the floor covering.

I love your room. It is very inspiring. I am definitely going to make a point of visiting The Cottage very soon.

And I hope you don't mind if I copy you by putting letters that spell "inspire me" in my craft room. Such a neat idea!

Amy, how inspiring! Your room is so sweet. I almost stopped by the shop yesterday, now I am mad I didn't. I will have to stop by next Tuesday to visit your sweet space.
