My Workout/Wedding Central Room

I’m supposed to attach a brackety thing to the side things, using a bunch of these little worm guys. I have no brackety thing, I see no whim guys whatsoever and… I cannot feel my legs. -Ross, Friends

I may have mentioned that Match and I have a spare bedroom at our duplex. It used to hold our love seat, and was supposed to be a reading room/crafts type room, but I never sat on the love seat in there. So we moved it out to the living room, and I got rid of the big table, and replaced with with a desk. A desk that after many hours of grueling labor, sore fingers, and the need for me to take joint pain relief after kneeling for so long, is finally put together. And I told Match that we’re never again buying a build it yourself desk. We’re using this one until we’re rich enough to get a real wood desk and it’s getting delivered!

I’ll get an after picture just as soon as I finish organizing the room. I’ts going to be a gym/office so my exercise ball will double as my chair. Have you tried using one as a chair? It’s not only comfortable, but you can work on your abs while you sit. Isn’t that fun?

The desk has my handy dandy wedding binder full of our plans and ideas for the big day. Now that the desk is finished I can start working on that do it yourself escort card idea. It’s not going to cost me anything, since I already have all of the card stock, paints, and even ribbon. I’ll take some pictures of the work in progress when I get started. I decided on the tree idea, but I’m making a few tweeks.
Instead of those flowers (I think they’re kind of ugly) I’m going to have votives on the table. I also think I might scatter leaves below the tree, and then line up the friends cards so it looks like they’ve fallen from the tree.  I think I also might use an actual tree branch instead of those sticks. Trust me it’ll look great when I’m done. And if it doesn’t, I haven’t spent any money and I can scrape the whole idea.

The other idea is that I will use the room as a workout center to help motivate me into shape. I’m still going to the gym, but on those days where I just don’t feel like it, I have no excuses. The home gym is here.

So this weekend will be a craft/fitness weekend. I know, wild and crazy plans right? What do you have planned?

    Oh I love that! It’s going to be so pretty. I like the idea of the votives too. I can’t wait to see your finished product!

    I have an exercise ball in the bedroom; I don’t know why I never thought to use it as a chair! I wonder if it’s tall enough to use at my desk…

    I LOVE the idea of the votives as well! It’s going to be fabulous!

    Our extra room/guest room is just piled high with crap. Boxes, suitcases, blankets, old clothes my daughter has grown out of, an old TV that we’ll never use again and I have no idea why we’re keeping it and so much other junk. Ugh.

    Good idea! Glad you will get use out of the room now 🙂 And I think the tree will turn out cute and it will give you a project to work on while Match is working the graveyard shift. Can’t wait to see pics 🙂
