No, the porch isn't done, and neither is the master bed/bath. They're a work in progress that will probably take a while. C'est la vie. In the meantime, one room that is almost finished (but not decorated) is the playroom. This will be the first room finished on the second floor. No we still don't have a bedroom, but having this room done will allow us to get rid of a lot of boxes of toys that my daughter hasn't seen in almost a year. It's going to be like Christmas for her and I couldn't be more thrilled. So, here's how the room is looking now after plaster work, sanding, new baseboards, electrical, paint, and newly refinished floors.
Now to daydream about what I eventually want for this room.
I really want this Caitlin Wilson fabric for window cornices.
Yes, it's pricey, but I wouldn't need much of it. I don't think I'll put anything else on the windows...just let the light shine on in.
Then I think I'd like to wallpaper that back wall in this Thibaut wallpaper.
That is the best image I could find. It's actually a closer match in person.
I really want a play table and chairs and I think these from Land of Nod would be perfect.
Maybe a couple of these would also be cute.
I'm thinking a navy blue area rug might be nice to hide the inevitable stains. Something like one of these?
A bookcase is a must as well. Maybe something like these.
So that's the
vision dream... so far. I guess a ceiling light would also be helpful and some other odds and ends. If only money grew on trees (or really hideous shrubs that scream "hi, I'm from the 80's" that can be found in bulk in our front yard).
