The weather channel broadcasted from here this week. It seems that the prolonged low temperatures we are having merit national attention. I know they have mine. I’m in full soup eating, flannel wearing, nesting mode. So, I thought I’d show you a quick project for the nest.
While our youngest was in college we did little to the upstairs “bonus/media room. It was the perfect place for the kids to hang out and they were unconcerned about decor. But when “the baby” graduated, the fraternity basement look had to go! There are no before pictures-just this latest project. This is the poster I got for Christmas and the 1/2 price poster frame from Hobby Lobby.
We all love movies….films :) I had found “Gone With the Wind” and “The Godfather” a while back, but needed one more to complete the wall. Sunshine knew EXACTLY what I needed to complete the trio. So today I framed and hung Dorothy and the gang. Of course, you know how I feel about them :). Beloved loves “The Godfather” and that picture of Clark Gable speaks for itself.
This room is all about us as a family. The space is casual with easy-to-care-for fabrics and furniture where you can prop your feet. Beloved gets his gun cabinet and an antique decoy box. An AB lounger that makes me feel better every time I walk by it :) I think you have to actually use it to get the Madonna abs! There is a game table for Scrabble or poker.
It’s the place we put family photos from the past…the ones we cherish. I am the baby with my grandfather in the press room of the local newspaper where he worked….three generations of the men in Beloved’s family after a duck hunt.
It’s a room for family needlepoint and the books we love…nothing fussy or fancy. The corner of the room you can’t see is where I am now….typing away at a big ugly desk. I have plans for it too :)….another Met Monday soon I hope.
Thanks for taking this tour with me on this cold winter day and sharing my mini mini metamorphosis. Susan at Between Naps on the Porch will be hosting Metamorphosis Monday…I just couldn’t wait….cabin fever has set in :) Click on the MM button on Monday for fun on the porch!
