The cabinet in the corner has traveled with me from Connecticut. I am kind of sad, but it is in the garage at the moment and I think it is going to my mom's shop next.. The bookcase, which the boy re-did (and was actually purchased at an estate sale, where the Rehab Addict, Nicole Curtis, did one of her first houses in the twin cities. LOVED that house!) will go downstairs in his office/library when we get that done. The wine bar went to one of my girlfriends, the chairs, which the boy has always hated, are currently in the living room until we decide what is next for them. I like them, the boy doesn't, not sure if there is room for compromise here.
We need to get a few rugs up on Craigslist. I have never sold anything on Craigslist, but my sister is a pro.
Our neighbors have really helped with inspiration and ideas. It was P's idea to scrape the popcorn off of the alcove and paint the ceiling. I love the way it turned out. We used the bottom color from the dining room for one wall and the top color for the other three walls. I love the way it blends the two rooms together now
I love having a bar in here.
We did eventually find a settee that worked, again, Home Goods, it is very comfortable and fits perfectly. Of course it needed a gallery wall above it.
The last thing that we needed was a light fixture. We don't use it very much, as we usually have the lamp on in the room which works perfectly, so I didn't want to spend a ton, but I still wanted it to work with the rest of the room and the dining room. Some of the contenders from Southern Lighting.
Ultimately we found one off of Smart Bargains and we are very pleased with it, especially since my dad was able to install it!
Some curtains and a curtain rod, also from Home Goods (I seriously think we keep this place in business) a couple of side/end tables from Target, a couple of throws and pillows and we were all set. I really do love this room. We finished it right before Thanksgiving, and it has been getting ton of use ever since.
The last thing we did was replace the lamp on the bar, I think we brought home and tried 12 different lamps before we found the right one. Lighting was key. I will try to update with a picture when I get a chance.
Another project off of the list! We brought home paint samples for the kitchen and living room tonight, so hopefully I will have more projects to add to the list soon!
Still to come (these are the rooms that have been completed, I just need to get the pictures posted)
