my, how this house has changed in four short weeks.
this blue room is no longer.
the wall to the right is gone and,
if you look past the naked kid to the wall behind him,
that wall is opened up to what we now refer to as
the front room.
the door came off the closet.
we threw on some paint we had from
our last house along with a few shelves
and voila, we have a book nook.
we are in pretty desperate need of book space, this doesn't
even make a dent but it's a start.
and i think it adds more warmth to the
room. with room for a round
wicker basket at the bottom it also gives the
little ones a place to put their trucks.
this is the white wall that will soon have wide white horizontal planking
across it. i think it will add tons to this room.
the picture over the blue check chair is a painting
my brother did years ago. i have always loved it and decided that the
darker, more brooding feel of the painting
really anchored the light, airy feel to this room.
the best piece of furniture for this space
turned out to be this dresser that
i redid last year. i'm not crazy about
not having a tv cabinet where we can close it
off but we gotta work with what we have.
the dresser also gives us the extra storage space we need.
