Meet The New Men In My Life...


Had a wonderful time on the weekend with some spunky men... Stanley & Allen...
and their friends Ryobi... and Ratchet... (I think their parents were on something when they were named!)


Anyway, the boys got their muscles flexing & worked their magic...
And we made... sewing room magic furniture!! (ah-ha, I hear you all with dirty minds!)

The hall table will be customised, & will become my pressing/ironing station... stay tuned for how that happens...

Fabulous big 16-cube bookcase/storage unit... lots & lots of work in this one for Allen & Ryobi...

 This table is actually a 6-seat dining table, but is now my sewing table...

All the instructions state not to employ Stanley or Ryobi... but seriously, how on earth is a person to get all the packaging open & the bolts tightened without those two strong & capable blokes?! Despite their reputation, these two guys can do 'careful and gentle' really well... thanks gentlemen... you know how to treat a lady!

Stanley had a terrific time, cutting up the boxes & foam from two items, & tossing it into the third box!

There is still some finishing off to be done in the room... tv, air-con, vertical blinds... but I can start putting my things in there.... just in time for Chooky's weekend of sewing & fun!

Can't tell you how excited I am♥

Wooohooo! I have that cube shelving but it is stuffed full of stuff. I wouldn't mind redoing my sewing room with furniture to match instead of an old trestle and an old desk. Looks fantastic.
