Have I mentioned my husband has turned over his office/computer room to me so that I could have an art studio of my own?
Yes, I am married to the most wonderful man in the world!
Sorry, girls, I got ’im…
The list of pros of this new arrangement stop there, however because
THIS ROOM IS A COMPETE MESS!!!
Yucky, smelly and just downright gross!
My man WAS a smoker and this office WAS the only room in the house designated for his disgusting indulgence, always with the door sealed shut.
Needless to say, the room when I received it, smelled like a stale ashtray. Because of the nature of the room’s use, I never went in to clean it after it became clear it was a hopeless situation. Now I regret that decision, though what I really could have done is beyond me.
Hubby tried his best to clean it and ripped out all the old shelving I wouldn’t be using. But even after several moppings and airings, it is clear that drastic measures are required.
The nicotine coated walls and ceiling will need to be scrubbed and repainted a clean white. Any other heavy-duty cleaning advise would be appreciated from my friends in blogland.
Warning, if you have a weak constitution, you may want to look away and scroll no further…
I was going to show you a picture of when the room was my son’s nursery vs. what it became after my love took it under his smoker’s wing, but it is all too sad.
Yes, the degradation of the room is disgraceful, but I am determined to reverse the damages!
