Pardon our dust...

Our heating and cooling contractors arrive Tuesday to cut into our downstairs ceiling/walls to make way for our new heating system. I can't WAIT! However, I'm not looking forward to the dusty mess and I'm pretty sure our cat is going to hate us.

Currently, our downstairs is partially finished (minus Emma's new room and my craft room) which means we've had to get creative with storing toys, furniture and "stuff". There's no way around it. It's going to be messy for awhile.

Here's a sneak peek at the some of the before and after shots of the furniture going in my craft room.

I'm going with fruity colors in my craft room. Butter yellow walls (which haven't happened yet) with apple green and melon furniture. The yellow/green cabinet is getting a new countertop large enough to be island for working on projects. It was ordered on Saturday from Lowe's. I can hardly contain myself. Let's just hope I can keep my obsessive compulsive tendencies in check while the contractors are busy working. Bring on the mess!

Okay, so my favorite is definitely the cherry-blossom lanterns! Have fun with your dust. My dust is of a different variety. ;)
