My transformed den

 So I figured it was time to participate in Kelly's "Show us where you live..." Fridays. 

Chris and I poured lots of time and love into this room.  Before we moved all of our belongings into the house, we stayed here and painted in the evenings after work.  We had enough at the house to shower, get ready and eat dinner.  We didn't have a clock, just a radio.  We would paint and just lose track of time, some nights we wouldn't go to bed until midnight.

Here is a BEFORE picture (picture that was from the house listing)
Wood flors, wood panel on the walls, wood door, wood blinds, wood ceiling fan, wood bookshelves with scalloped edging, wood doors on bookshelves...need I say more?

Here is our transformation:
This is the view as you walk into the house.  We added a mantle and a Buck stove (wood burning).
Wood floors, door and beams are the same- everything else has been painted.  This was definitely a labor of love, primer, tape and paint! (If you are a soap opera person, the screen shot is that of As the World Turns.  The series finale was today, so sad.  And if you are very observant- you'll see the red lights on the monitor.  I was trying to convince Emmy to nap)

The wall of pictures (frames from Exposures). This is also the "dump spot": diaper bag, shoes, purse, magazines, a stroller box that's 2 weeks old, shoes, camera bag, etc.

The view from the rocking-recliner (many hours were spent in this chair when Emmy was a newborn)

Another view, this time with the pertussis commercial on TV.

Since I posted a pic of all the other walls, here's the last one.


  1. I love what you did with the room. It looks great!

  2. I love how you pulled it all together.


I love hearing what you have to say:
