So, back to the chair of two posts ago. After my sweet Andy built my studio for me, we had this tiny, dark little room upstairs with no purpose. I thought it would be nice to have a room where the grandchildren could play their video games, watch TV and possibly even sleep in when they stay over. I found an inspiration room in Creative Home magazine back in Fall of 2007 that I thought would be perfect, but, it would require a lot of Andy's time. (Lot's of built-ins.) The paper is all crunched up because I carried it around in my purse for a couple of months, buying fabric, etc.
The room in the photo looks alot bigger than ours, but with Andy's magic, I knew it would work. Our room, which is about 9 x 10 wouldn't allow room for a coffee table, and the chair in my previos post is just outside of the photo (I really need a wide angle lense), but here it is.
I have a bureau on the other side of the room that belonged to my mother when she was a small girl, painted white to match the woodwork of the wall piece. The TV and game stuff sits on that. I also have a small coffee table that my Dad made in 7th grade wood shop, but it needs to be painted, and I'm not going to put it in here until the kids are older. I keep the bed linens and some quilts in the storage below the bed, and games, etc. go in the cabinets to the side of the bed. It's just perfect for this space. Lindsey claims that this is her room.
