Here is the room when we looked at the house, previous owners furnishings included:
(The cutie pie on the couch was included in the sale.)
Here it is empty:
(Hard to tell from the pics that the ceiling panels are painted alternating colors of green, a purply cranberry, and beige - eww!)
Here is is before I left:
(Notice the presence of the weird little kneewall that really serves no purpose except to close up this lovely room.)
And here is what I came home to:
Isn't she lovely!? Not nearly complete - but oh so lovely! My tall hubby still need to finish painting the ceiling and beams, and new furniture and furnitire arrangement are in this rooms future, for sure - but I LOVE the new built-ins. And all the white makes this room seem so light and lofty. I think my FIL logged over 80 hours working on these, a huge thanks to my MIL (the gopher,painter, and design consultant) and FIL!
