Last week I put the paint on the walls of the front bedroom, which will hopefully be transformed into my library. Monday night I painted the trim. Tonight my parents brought over my one book shelf and more boxes of my books. I still have seven boxes of books at their house, though. lol
Here is that same corner. As you can see I have my book shelf filled already. There are three boxes sitting on the floor with more books waiting for a home, plus I have at least three boxes in my other bedroom. That’s not counting the seven at my parents’.
This is the other corner of the room. I hope to move the desk in front of the window and then set either a smaller book shelf to the right, or possibly bring my filing cabinet out of the closet and place it there. Also, do you see all of the framed pictures I have to hang? I have to figure out where the best spots for all of them to go will be.
Here’s one more picture of my shelf. Can I tell you how happy it makes me to see my books lined up and on display? They aren’t in any kind of order right now, but once I have more shelves and can organize them you bet that I will have a system set up. lol. I just tried to put some of my favorite ones out on the shelf for now. Here’s a question for you… does the lace curtain look silly in a library that will be housing books on the bloodiest war our country has ever had? I like it, though. I guess it screams ‘Kerry’. All history and hardcore Civil War on the inside, but feeling the need to frill it up a little on the edges. lol
