The new den

A lot has happen this last year and so. I finished woodworking school after two years (I’m not attending the final year) and we bought a second house. We decided for a particular home arrangement and we are now leaving in two houses. So the use of rooms here are changing.

First room to be reassigned was the previous twins rooms. It is now a TV room and also a guest room. It will be also the house library, when I build the bookshelves.

The room is quite small, with sloped ceilings. It had beige walls and floors and bordeaux trimmings.

The plan was to make it lighter and fresher. A cozy, comfortable space to watch movies, read, relax. Walls, trimmings, windows and doors are now painted in white. The tin ceiling got a new coat of white. The floor kept beige. We changed the light fixture.

The radiator got a coat of antique brass, and it is so much nicer.

I also stripped all the painting on the windows pull back to the original brass.

A day bed, that was previously in Kyana’s room, got a lot of pillows to double as sofa, mostly, or bed when the kids come to sleep over.

I am still working on decorating the room, and the other side will get some built-ins to be a sort of library. We might get a new post soon on all that!
