Now that most of the painting is finished, I'm trying to concentrate on putting things back together. For some reason, I seem to be going in circles this week! After a frustrating day, I've decided to tackle just one thing at a time instead of trying to get it all done at once.
One of my projects is to convert the spare bedroom into a reading/guest room. Most of the old furniture has been removed and repurposed elsewhere but it's been a great storage room while we've been painting. First step is to move the things in there back where they belong. Once I've emptied this room (again) we'll repaint it before putting starting the conversion. Right now it's painted a soft robin's egg blue which looked fine when it was a bedroom but I just don't like the colour for my new reading room. I think I'd like a soft white for the walls with white furnishings ... very soothing and restful.
This sofa bed from Ikea would be perfect in there. I'm already imagining how it's going to look. Of course I'll share photos of my progress!
I wanted to post about this yesterday but my day got away from me so I'm posting it now! Last week I purchased this wonderful e-book by Layla Palmer from The Lettered Cottage. Creating an Inspired Home is chock full of fabulous ideas and photos as well as easy to follow instructions on creating your own inspired home. Layla's enthusiasm for decorating is contagious! I'm going to take some time over the weekend to read it from cover to cover. You can purchase Layla's e-book here.
