I can't believe how long I have been doing this...
and I can't believe how much I still love doing it.

This project was particularly fun - not so much the room itself - although I love how it turned out -
but the fact that this was a little used bonus room at the top of the stairs
and everyone walked through it to access the bedrooms.
 We took this little used space 
and turned it into the favorite spot in the house to hang out.

Fresh new paint.
New built-ins.

(this corner column is actually DVD storage)

New cushions and pillows
and the bench is extra wide - perfect for sleepovers if needed
and window treatments

added recessed lighting

and sconces on each side of the window

in antiqued brass
(yes, brass is definitely back)

We gathered stuff for the shelves
and also made new purchases to add interest.

New club chairs for TV viewing

Its no wonder they love this spot

Comfy floor pillows

We decided we needed to add a little visual weight to the area below that big black
flat screen - and a little greenery
so we created these planters with faux succulents and black pebbles

This place is full of family memories

and not just on the shelves

It's all about family
as it should be

Before the remodel, everyone passed through this room to access the upstairs bedrooms.  
No one wants to pass through it now.

Sandy from Pacific West Drapery Design created the bench cushions and pillows, as well as the floor pillows and window treatments.
