I’ve now completed my first week as my own boss and it’s been pretty good!
Despite the fact that it’s been non-stop, I don’t feel I’ve been very productive- because I haven’t been doing ‘proper’ work!
Before I get started, I think it’s really important to have a nice environment to work in. But tidying and decorating always takes longer than I think- especially when the room starts off looking like this!
I’ve always tried to keep my workroom fairly organised, but more recently it’s been a case of just plonking things in there and closing the door. The room has doubled up as a spare bedroom as well, which means that I haven’t had the storage space I’ve needed and I end up with piles of stuff on the bed. I’ve admitted defeat on that one, and my guests will now be staying on a fold up bed that I can store under the stairs!
I was hoping to be a bit further along by Friday- I even thought I might have some paint on the walls! But at least the room is empty(ish) and ready for paint.
I also think it’s important to have somewhere comfy to sit in a workroom, so I snapped up this Ercol armchair for a bargain price on Ebay. It needs a lot of love and my dad is going to try and sand it down to take it back to the pale wood before I get started on the fun part- making cushions for it!
