Here’s the “halfway there” photo:
It’s a little better, huh? I painted the bookcases and stained the top of the desk. I dejunked the bookcases, too. Man, we had a lot of stuff that just needed to be tossed! I decided to pack up old college textbooks because I know we are not going to be reading those any time soon. And I moved some books to other parts of the house. With the extra space, I was able to style things a little more nicely:
Do you see that apothecary jar full of marbles? They belonged to my husband’s uncle when he was a boy. I just love them and am so glad we can have them on display!
I still need to:
– paint the desk legs
– add art to the wall
– hide the jumble of computer cords
But it’s coming along!
