Yeah ... I know. I've been promising to show you pics of my reading room for weeks now. This time it's the real deal ... I promise! :) It's not finished yet but I wanted to show you my progress so far.
In its former life, this was a completely unused spare bedroom. I've been toying with the idea of a reading room for years but couldn't bring myself to part with my old bedroom set. Someone kindly took the bed off my hands and I was able to re-purpose everything else (more on that much later!)
The sofa bed is from Ikea ... not the one I originally picked out but I love it! The cushions are also from Ikea ... don't you just love that place? I always find great stuff there. The wall colour is "Swiss Coffee" by Behr and it's quickly becoming my new favourite shade of white with just a hint of warmth to it.
Still left to do ...
♦ Artwork on the walls ... they're feeling a little bare and I've got a few ideas that I'm keeping under my hat for now.
♦ The bookcases need to be painted ... probably white ... to unify them. It was a bit difficult to get a decent picture of them because of the angle but there are three, two smaller and one large in the centre.
♦ New lamps. Those orange flowers have got to go.
♦ Not sure about painting the chest and end table ... I'm leaning towards leaving them natural. Let me know what you think.
I have to tell you that I'm totally loving this room now. It's so cosy and the perfect spot to curl up in. Even though it's not finished, I still find myself heading there whenever I need a few minutes to unwind. And I still have a room for the occasional overnight guest!
