I also need to prime a portion of the floor which will have the floor boards painted dark brown, and finally order the carpet tiles.
Craig and I are renting this place and I've found some responses from friends that don't understand why we are sinking money into a house we don't own. I am really going to get a lot of enjoyment out of the space once we finish the work. All of the work will take less than $500 to complete. We will not be in the position to buy for many years. Is it all that odd that we will spend a little money for something that will give us lots of enjoyment?

I have spent a lot of time day dreaming and planning out this space. This space was one of the main reasons we wanted this house since we do so much group ritual and ritual work. I have been collecting photos for my ideas on my Pinterest, which you can find here: Ravencroft Temple Room Pin Board.
I've been doing a lot of reading, thinking, and meditating on mindfulness this year. One of the key proponents of Buddist mindfulness meditation is that you have to invite the stillness into your home. Many do this with a spot, or dedicated room if you are so luck to have an altar for honoring listening, stillness, and peace. This will be my peaceful retreat, my haven. I'm getting antsy to go ahead and get it done with so it can stop being so dirty and dusty and start being wonderful!
