There are some fun things happening over here... but unfortunately I can't share the news yet! There are a few of these little secrets in the works & hopefully I can share them with you all soon. One of them involves our dining room.
I painted the entire room white yesterday (without telling the hubs... SURPRISE HONEY!) The funny thing is he came home, looked at the room & asked what color it was originally (& had been for 6 years!) "Babe, it was brown." Big transformation. It's light & bright! & something I thought was going to be a quick change. A little paint & a new pair of drapery panels... done. Uh, not after our brainstorming session last night.
Somehow the conversation flipped from "What do you think about a narrow ledge on this wall?" to "Let's build an entire built in bookcase around our french doors!" Something like this...
Really?!? I have wanted built ins forever!!! I can't wait to get this project started!!! I immediately started sketching out our idea.
I love the idea of a collected library feel in the dining room. I am already styling these shelves in my head & they aren't even built yet.
