This is our Library..... we have waited a very long time to have all of our books out of boxes..... we had so many that we ended up going back and getting more bookshelves and putting them up instead of a desk for me (my computer is now in the dining area) and we really love how the bookshelves turned out.... they almost look like built-ins....
The fireplace is great.... at the far corner of the room.... its a wood burning fireplace too.... whoohooo! those are panels of fabric I got from ebay.... I was so excited to find some vintage cloth that went so well with the vintage couch and chair I got from the kids grandparents. I will soon be having those panels (they are just clipped up there for now) turned into lined curtains and there will be a total of 4 not just the 3 I have up there now..... a good fall/winter project.
The doorway is to our Master Bedroom.... we are on one end of the house and the kids' rooms are on the other with the living area in the center of the home. Remember the $1 yardsale mirror? That's it on the wall next to our door..... it matches the room so well!
We have yet to get the books in any kind of order... we simply put them up on the shelves for now.... Eric has a computer program that will list them and help us keep track of them.... so that is a project for the long winter nights.
So, that's our library..... we are so happy to have a good room for our books. I was looking at the beginning of doing a whole different color scheme in there..... but when the couch and chair was brought home I found that I really wanted to use the vintage fabric in the furniture and not cover it with a slipcover.... so I decided the colors for the room would change. I like it!
