Cabin fever spawns springtime to-do's....

It is only January, but lately the weather has been very mild in temperature which causes my mind to reel about the hundreds of things I'd rather be doing other than waiting for winter to leave and spring to arrive.  I want to get back into digging in the dirt...to building things and fixing things.  

My mental "to do" list is growing at a rapid pace and if I don't start logging my ideas down on paper, a hundred different other things will pop up and take their place.

What comes to mind first is the last unfinished thing in my camper...the dining area ceiling.  I am so unhappy with the fact that I can't make it how I want it...perfect.  No, not exactly..just nice and pretty.  Once I roll my sleeves up to start on that, I am certain it will lead me to some sort of replacement for the wall attached table.  I have a friend who does marine survey/yacht recycling and he salvaged a really nice table which has a map underlay.  I think it is beautiful!  



I am hoping he can get one for my camper.  I need to take measurements.  I'd really like to make it some sort of portable artwork when not in use as the bed support and do away with the wall mount all together.  Space limitation is my concern with the art idea.  The dining area is rarely used as such anymore, and I seem to stuff too much "stuff" under the table anyway.  Renovation with purpose.   I've got a cute vintage occasional table that would be the perfect spot for a cup of coffee and a magazine.  Turn it into a reading and sitting area by day, then when needed as sleeping by night.  We shall see.  For now, I have to wait for nicer weather while keeping my pen and paper at the ready for any more ideas that pop in.

Until then...
