WHAT TO DO WITH A STAIRCASE LANDING THAT HAS PLENTY OF USEABLE SPACE BUT NO ELECTRICAL OUTLETS!
Do you ever just look around your home and notice an area that you’ve never thought of as useable space before? The upstairs landing in our loft is just that space. It’s large enough to use as an office if need but there’s no electrical outlet in the floor. I’m really not sure how that was overlooked because we have other outlets in the floor that run along the rail but nope nothing on the landing.
I’m not about running an extension cord to run a computer I don’t think It’s a good idea. I could bug hubby and have him tear out the floor and pull the wiring up to the spot I need but that sounds like way more work than it’s worth and with us looking to sell it’s a stupid idea. I dare say he wouldn’t be too happy with me either for coming up with another one of my hair-brained ideas so I’d better get that idea out of my head.
For those of you who don’t read my “Talk Till Dawn” series we’re looking at downsizing and I’ve been on a mission to find us a new place. We have two homes to sell and would like to find acreage with a huge barn and a tiny house already on the property. I’m not one to force the issue I just sit back, pray, and in Gods time I know if it’s meant to be it will all come together and fall into place.
It sure doesn’t stop me from searching Zillow ever day though. But anyway back to the landing. I decided to try and add a few décor items to it from time to time just for something new. If the front door is ever used our guest see directly up the stairs to the landing portion. For now I added a large wire basket, I think it was formally a freezer basket from back in the day when things were made of metal not plastic, and to it I added a ticking quilt, and some yardage of linen fabric.
I like the simplicity of it and think I’ll keep trying other simple décor items when I tire of this look. I crave a simpler time. There are times I really despise cell phone and what they take away from families communicating. Do we really have to text each other when we all live under the same roof? So with my attempt to make my life less hectic and more meaningful you’ll be seeing simpler décor posts sprinkled in from time to time.
I’m even going to find a way to hang my clothes outdoors again. In a past post I told you my clothes were getting dusted with the placement of the line to close to our dirt driveway, but I think I have it figured out. Come back soon to see what I’ve come up with. Here’s to going through life taking the time to enjoy the simple pleasures that are around me everyday!
