So let us take a trip upstairs:)
The upstairs of this house had been an apartment since
the 70's. The entrance was at the bottom of the stairs
onto the front porch.
We removed the door and added an old
salvaged window that matched
the others in the house.
When we removed the disgusto carpet on the stairs,
we found these beautiful old green painted steps underneath!!
Yeah, you can just imagine my face!
Like I've said before, I swear I used to live here in another life:)
So at the top of the stairs, we made a little library out of what was
once a teeny tiny bedroom. We removed the wall where the
staircase railing is now to open it up and add some much needed
light into this little space:)
This is where my green recliners ended up. I almost sold them! I couldn't
figure out where to put them at first and I was in one of my-
just get rid of it! times in my life. So happy the hubby talked some sense into me:)
He's always the voice of reason when I'm having a fit of crazy.
Speaking of crazy.... I clearly have a design book problem.
I can't help it! I LOVE to look at pretty pictures!!
Then there's my old green book problem....
Oh my goodness, just look at my 17 year old self in that frame!
Tan, 110 pounds, and a perm....
And hubby's 'stache!! We just celebrated 27 years on March 6th:)
Oh the memories.....
Ok, back to what we're really talking about here.
This is the other side of the tiny room, and this is where you
can find my hubby on most nights.
This shelf of books are totally him:)
So because I know inquiring minds will want to know...
The curtains and table are from World Market. I don't think
they carry the table anymore:(
The green recliners are from La Z Boy.
The floor lamp is from Target.
The table lamp is from Home Goods.
The hubby made the wood shelves out of the wall we
took down when we opened up the staircase:)
Next week- the Master Bedroom and Bath.
