A Room for a Crazy Chair

I've been working quite hard this past week---last weekend was spent mostly at home and we've managed now to make enough room to put ONE CAR in the garage.  That is an achievement, let me tell you~~~

So today's post is what I did with the front room. This is the first room you see when you come in the front door on the left. It is fairly small...just a bit bigger than 12 X 12. It is open on the side you see that is a hallway leading to the back of the house where the kitchen is. The left side is a big window. So, here we go!

Here's the empty room

In the log home, the bookcases were downstairs---and packing up all of the books, transporting them and then unpacking them and arranging them on the shelves was one of the MOST time consuming things I've done so far.  I don't know if I've mentioned it, but we moved EVERYTHING, except the furniture, ourselves.  Every lamp, dish, book, picture, decoration.....we packed it and moved it in our old 92 Toyota Van......

So, with FALL just around the corner, I thought that while I was putting everything together, I may as well decorate for here's the same room.  VOILA!!

except all it has room for now is the one chair....which I recently acquired for free.  I'd like to recover it, but for now, it's the crazy chair in the front room....look closely and you'll see LOTS of Susan Branch books on the far right bookcase.

Hope you enjoyed the transformation!!!

  4. I love of home with lots of books. Don't quite understand how people can have NO BOOKS. Love what you have done with the space and the chair looks like a great place to curl up and read. xoxo
