Always a work in process, I have a few more wooden crates in my garage being spray painted; yes, this was my best option when buying a new house and building a library before worrying about any other room.
I have books stacked on crates, items that need to be hung on the walls, and still have to put in my tin ceiling that Menard’s denied me over a year ago.
Still unpacking books, and trying to make room.
I love too many stories to make a theme in this library, other than reading books!
Yeah…. move into a house that someone flipped quick, you better check everything!
So my pipe to drain the bathtub came unhooked. Did not know it when I took a shower. But I certainly heard it when my daughter was draining her bath…
Thank goodness the huge area rug took up the water. I would have lost my brand new furniture; more books than the 40 I threw out; and my first edition Wizard of Oz books were down here; along with many autographed books.
I lost shoes, clothes, and precious books I loved to read.
…to put actual bricks in 😂 Only doing spots on the wall for accents; the majority of it will be hidden behind furniture and book cases. Hence; I see the crookedness, and I like it 😃
Sub ceiling going in. Erin getting it done.
Next the subceiling goes up, and then the tin tiles whenever Menards stops holding them hostage.
Bricks will be sponge painted along portions of the walls, and I have a huge area rug to cut down all of the brightness.
I have everything bought I need to turn this 11×11 foot room into my library.
Here is what it looks like now…
Tomorrow I will post the furniture, lamps, and rugs I bought.
The one thing I haven’t gotten? Bookshelves 😳😂
I will start painting tomorrow, and cannot wait to see the results!
The Mark Twain Library in Detroit. Closed in 1996 for renovations and never reopened. I cannot believe my state let this happen 😡😡😡
