I think the weather here is confused. Today it’s 70 degrees and I have the windows open, tomorrow it’s going to snow. Umm really?! Snowflake sightings are a show stopper around here, so I’m fully prepared not to venture out of my house until the end of the week. And by “prepared”, I mean I bought some bagels and a gallon of paint. Let the blizzard begin. In other news, I finished my stairs! Whoop whoop! I’ll be showing those off shortly. In the mean time, lets discuss this area directly above the stairs.
Looks smashing doesn’t it? Well it will, have a little faith. It’s already much improved, the ceiling is now white instead of pink, the far wall is painted, and of course the stairs and rail is painted. This area is a hallway which contains no less than six doors (I am perfectly thrilled at the prospect of painting all those) that open to three bedrooms, the bathroom, and two closets. The wall directly opposite the stair rail is the one I have my eye on. Such a nice blank wall, don’t you think? Perfectly good space, if one were to use their imagination a bit. I’m thinking along the lines of some 8 x 10′s and some crown molding. What better spot for mini library of sorts than a hallway?
Just consider the possibilities for a moment… (click on the picture for the source)
As you can see from the picture of the space I’m working with, our space is rather limited so it won’t be as grand looking as any of my inspiration pictures. It will, however, do the job of emptying out a dozen or more boxes of books I still have sitting around. I have to paint that wall, and then the Mister can get down to the business of making my vision come to life. He’s such a good sport!
This house already has a ton of built in shelves and drawers that were part of the original design of the house, and now we are adding more….oh well, you can never have too many can you? Let’s just hope whoever owns this house after me is a storage loving bookworm too!
2 Corinthians 8:9 For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.
