Almost a Library


We're creeping towards the finish line on the toy-room-to-library transformation up under the eaves. We'll have shiny white paint everywhere, two walls of shelves loaded with books, floral oil paintings on every blank wall, darling purple velvet couches facing each other under the skylights, and room to read and think and talk . . . when we get done.

Clara and I painted hard this afternoon (she painted harder because my neck gave out). Our goal is to paint the floors right before we leave for the wedding, and that will be it.

That sounds downright charming! I hope you will post a few photos of the space when it is done!

Clara's skirt is beautiful. Did you make it?

Sounds like a wonderful, cozy room. Clara looks lovely painting.

That sounds lovely. I wish I was better at creating cozy. My tendency, unfortunately, leans more towards the sparce look.

Like father like daughter in painting the ceiling.

Like mother like daughter, using the latex gloves.

Hee hee Anna I can't remember when or what it was but I recall a post where you mentioned latex gloves and how useful you were finding them, the only concern you had was possibly setting up he family for a latex allergy which obviously didn't happen. :)
