I’m almost finished redoing my “dining room that’s not a dining room”. Let’s call it my new Library/Office. Over the weekend I finished the drapes and got them hung.
I have to give a shout out to my favorite local fabric store, Tony’s Fabrics, for coming through and finding more fabric for me. Panic set in when I finally decided on the fabric for my drapes and they didn’t have enough to make two. That old saying “you snooze you lose” applied to me big time! I don’t know if it was the tears in my eyes, the pouty lip or the kindness of their hearts, but they found more fabric and special ordered it for me. I LOVE THAT STORE! And the staff is generously helpful, offering tips and advice. Always a great thing when you don’t know the quantity you need to buy, or even the type of fabric you need to use for a particular project.
The bookcases came from Ikea. I love them! The difference they alone make in the room is huge. They are from Ikea HEMNES series. The chairs came from HomeGoods (of course!). I only bought two, but I’m thinking of picking up two more, or maybe coordinating chairs. I’m not a matchy matchy kind of girl. The paint color is a rich brown called Sierra Spruce from Benjamin Moore.
The room is almost complete. I’m looking for a round table to add to the room. I’m thinking of making one actually. But I’m having a really hard time finding an unfinished wood round table top. No luck at Lowes or Home Depot. ; ( Any suggestions??
Still need some artwork on the walls. I will post more pictures when the room is complete.
Parsons chairs from HomeGoods. $99.00 each.
Bookcases from Ikea. Color Grey/Brown
Drapes are finally made! Woohoo!!
