Remember when I asked you to all have patience (in my best Dazed and Confused Matthew McConaughey voice)? I’m happy to report one of those projects is officially complete. What started out as this:
Ended up as this:
I actually have two of these dormer window seats in my bonus room and I think they add special character to the space. Now, wouldn’t it be lovely if I showed you the before & after pictures of the entire room? Why yes, yes it would. However, today is not the day. Wanna know why? Because I live in a house with two dogs, two children and a husband. I’ll be honest with you, that feat does not bode well for “bonus” rooms.
See? Not so lovely. There also happens to be a lack of furniture and accessories in our bonus room…As in there is no sofa, no end tables, no coffee table and no lamps. BUT, we are getting there bit by bit (why is furniture so bloomin’ expensive?!). That being said, so far we have painted the walls, changed out the light fixtures, replaced the ceiling fan and now my dormer window seats are complete. So, we have indeed made progress and I do hope to show you the room in its entirety one day soon. In the meantime, let’s focus a bit more on what is finished (and clean enough to photograph).
So much better! I hope to see my girls spend a lot of time curled up in these fun little spaces for years to come. I can just see them reading books and nurturing their imagination as they look out on our big oak tree. I might even sneak some time there myself.
One project down, only 357 to go.
