While we`re getting the frontroom sorted, I`m also doing my daughter`s old room. Nothing major, just bringing things from the other room in there mostly. I`d like it to be a spare room/den....well sort of. Just trying to use what I already have and hopefully in the end it will all come together in some sort of weird way.
Here`s what one area looks like at the moment. That dresser is now filled with all my fabrics and may fit in the closet out of the way....hopefully.
What cat doesn`t appreciate a good mess?
These shelves were $50 for the pair and are going to be stained a darker colour and filled of books. I have a huge overflow of them. New lampshades on the old lamps maybe, or recovered. Haven`t thought about that yet.
Put one pair of the frontroom curtains I made either side of this teeny weeny cot. Daughter took her bed with her lol Not sure if they`ll stay that way or not. The bed area is about the only thing I`ve spent any time on in there so far. Everything else is just stuck on the wall, thrown or shoved in somewhere. Had to already take back those little lace sheers for another small window, so now there`s a shorter half one on the window for now. Haven`t thought about what to put there yet. It`s a very beige room at the moment and needs some splashes of colour eventually.
I dragged and squeezed until I was able to get the tan and black striped armchair in. I never thought I`d get it through the door, but eventually I figured out an angle. It`s far too bold for what I want in the frontroom, but I wanted to keep it as is because it took a long time to cover the darn thing and it`s really comfy. A different pillow will work. Those old curtains are covering the closet at the moment. We have a really comfy big couch in the frontroom that I want to eventually recover in some sort of sage green. But that won`t happen for awhile yet. The extra window is in now, for a start and makes it a lot brighter.
Not sure when I`ll get out the paint stain to get doing the shelves. I`ve slowed down a bit at the moment, so there won`t be any finished pictures for awhile.
I seem to be blank lately about what to put in my blog, so it may be a bit sparadic for awhile. Too many things on the go I think! I`d like to take some of my extra time to visit that long list of blogs I have along the side, so all this is to be continued :) And then there`s the other bedroom which is also my husbands computer/music room. Now that one`s about the biggest mess at the moment!
