Aiyie, yie yie........

....I'm starting to feel a little teeny bit claustrophobic - no room for much of anything.

We have a small home to begin with and even though we took all the front room furniture except the buffet to the Desseret Industries (DI) , between the books, pictures, art work and just STUFF, there's not much room for people or pups!



Speaking of pups, Braxton found he likes it just fine between the sheets of drop cloths on the floor....

And Lulu is not shy about telling us what she thinks of "foofoo-thingies" in her hair....



(how does one spell thtbbhththtbthth...?)

We will have a 4" to 5" padded seat on the window seat and I "think" maybe these curtains (?)

( I am a firm believer that every room needs a splash of red..) What do you think?

They're from Urban Outfitters and I spotted them on someone's blog (sorry- I can't give credit - I forgot who's I saw them on..) The ad said they are on a "cream" background which I think will go nicely with all the "Buttermilk"...

Maybe some red throw pillows on the new couch - it's a light tan micro-fiber and the rocker/recliner is sage green...Celery & Buttermilk walls...it's sort of coming together in my mind....

The TV will be on this wall, decorations on the shelf..and I think my "found green screen door" to the left of the TV...

This is the beginning of the window seat with the 2 bookshelves on the side- this too will be the Buttermilk color and the insides of the shelves will be the Celery color like the walls.

Not a really great photo of the window seat/bookcase combo- after the shelves are in and the crown molding is finished, you'll be able to see what a magnificent piece this is. I think the house could be blown away and that until will still stand. Mr. B makes thing to last...notice I'll have sort of corner shelves on this side and regular straight shelves on the far side...

Anyway, enough of this to bore you for one night. Have a wonderful Tuesday and remember, it's almost FRIDAY!!

Is Mr B for hire??? His work is beautiful and I love the design of your windowseat/bookcase. Your colors sound perfect to me. Aren't you just loving all the ideas you are having? Take care. Betty

Absolutely put those curtains in yoru room!! They are beautiful. You are very fortunate to have someone who is willing to help you transform your room. I usually have to do things like that by myself. But, I am very good with a circular saw now!!
Can't wait to see it all finished.
