Today the sun is shining and there isn't a cloud in the sky but it's a frigid 36 degrees out and I am not leaving my little cocoon!
Since I am still not up for much I thought I would share the little loft area upstairs that my husband has dubbed
"The Recovery Room"
It was once a child's bedroom but transformed to a place to watch tv when the kids visit from college about 5 years ago.
It now serves as our Living Room!
When we made the decision to move back home from the cottage this Winter...we knew we would have even less living space .
So I got busy!
I wanted the space to live well...no matter it's size.
I painted the walls the same shade that's on the walls of my cottage studio.
And then painted the wall behind the tv in black chalkboard paint.
Sweet Pea Home
For the last few weeks while my hubby and I recover from what ails us...we have been doodling with our little pieces of chalk!
It's has been a lot of fun and we are constantly changing the view!
Awhile back I decided to start collecting vintage binoculars...I have several pair now but two are real standouts!
The other pair are a family heirloom.
When I decided to do this project...I also decided to not spend any money doing it!
Almost everything in this room I already owned and simply moved to this new space.
I did however purchase these two cream tree trunk tables from the store in Tipton.
Aren't they fun?
I brought in one of the rugs from my guest room....This one is a faux bois indoor/outdoor!
We put this tiny kitchen in 5 years ago...but we really used it a lot these last few weeks!
Remember...we do not have a kitchen downstairs right now!
This dishtowel was the very first thing I ever won! EVER!
It is from the talented Sheila at Tattered Goods
She has a wonderful blog and I hope you get a chance to stop by!
The numbered plates and cannisters I bought last summer at Target.
This shelf is made from vintage ceiling tin and holds my husbands candy and a few books at his fingertips!
The only thing I had to sew for this project was the little window treatment...It's made from the document fabric I bought at Christmas from Ballards.
And the lampshades...are from Pottery Barn.
I bought them last Spring...and moved them in here from another area.
One of my favorite things about working in a specific color palette is that all of my favorite things can be moved from room to room!
It's like shopping...but in your own home!
This little room is quite tiny butI think it lives large!
I love the darker walls...really cozy and cocoon like!
The furniture is from the cottage and fits well in it's new home.
So what do you think?
Does it look like a place you might wish to recover ?
I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week!
Until next time...
