Anyway, bought the paper, then was afraid to use it. Numbers are not my friends. Especially when they include fractions, and those little symbols (little x's and the dashes with dots above and below). Don't even get me started on letters being involved! It's like cats and dogs--they're not supposed to intermingle!
Yesterday I got brave and took out my graph (not grid) paper and a measuring tape. Measured my bedroom. Figured out where doors and windows went. Measured the furniture. Went to my dusty, trusty calculator and figured out all those dimensions. More or less. I figure--as the saying goes--it's close enough for government work. Then I proceeded to arrange my furniture the way I'm hoping it will go after painting. And it looks like it will!! Yea! Except for those pesky nightstands (which I don't really like anyway). I'll probably make them work since they provide lots of storage. I've never done furniture arranging like this before (it's the math phobia) and I have to admit I'm quite proud of myself. I may have to frame this guy!
