Well I'm a let-down type blogger, now aren't I? Psh.
Since you little darlings have been so sweet to me since my triumphant return to the blogosphere following our move, I thought, 'hey, the library is pretty much done now, let's have another before-after installment!'
And so we will.
Ladies and gentlemen, I could not be more excited to share with you, my favorite room in our new house thus far, the place for all my beloved books, the library/home office...or as the Hubs calls it "Kirstin's room"...
|From the doorway....we actually removed the door itself, as it opened INTO the hallway, was just weird and super inconvenient.|
|The built in shelves, that WERE also covered by battered white doors...|
|The room head-on. Look at that wallpaper! YUCK.|
|Right of the door...|
|The built in closet unit....|
|Daisy modelling the original, beautiful hardwood floors in the future library...|
|The new view from the door!|
|Those shelves are looking pretty sweet now, huh? I love my books SO much, y'all. <3|
|Awesome stack of coffee table type books, and some of my series of artist portraits that grace the walls...|
|The giant bookcase we just bought and set up, so that we would have some growing room! Also the only source of light in the room; the rice paper lamp, the closet space near the doorway, the magazine rack, and more portraits!|
|Our work corner, near the window!|
|Laptop, graphic novels/manga, original kewpie doll, and look, a diploma frame!|
|And there's our hallway...you can sneak a peek at the guestroom across the hall! It's coming together SO AMAZINGLY!|
|p.s. - Here's the view from the single window in the library. It's our front yard and some of the pastures that wrap around our property!|
Well, there you have it, readers. Our library space.
What do you think of the transformation? The wall color I picked? The layout of our cozy little room?
Personally, I adore it. The only thing really missing is a funky, comfy area rug to warm it up a bit and help protect the amazing floors.
Thanks again for all the sweet comments and input that you all have been leaving on the blog lately. I LOVE reading them, and it's great to know what you all think!
So have a beautiful week, everyone...I'll be back around soon enough. Promise!
Next up in the before/afters series from our new house will probably be the dining room!
