Remember the "before" of this room?
Welcome to the Library! I've started the first phase of transforming the "Fireplace Room" into something with new purpose-- and a new name! This step was mostly about gathering all of the furnishings in one place. I still have a lot of painting to do--walls, fireplace bricks, a couple of pieces of furniture-- but the shell is there.
Here's a run-down of what is in there now. The big bookshelf I scored at the Salvation Army-- I went back and primed it, and it got three more coats of chalkboard paint. We have A LOT of books. A lot. I've pieced out our "pretty" books into some other places in the house, but this one is filled with all the books we love-pretty or not. I've just started adding fun accessories-- little interesting bits collected on our travels, out thrifting, inherited from family. I'm using the big open space in the middle as a bar area-- so fun for a nightcap in front of the fire this winter.
