Guess what? We finished baseboards in our den years after we put the wood floors down because sometimes doing everything yourself takes a long time pat on the back anyways and to commemorate the accomplishment, I figured an updated room tour was in order. I seem to share this space yearly during holidays (last year and year before), but guess I haven’t really given a full look in a long time. This post and this post do a thorough job showing and explaining its evolution so I won’t go into all the details today, you are welcome. (Sources at end, though most is vintage)Not too long ago, we moved out the bookshelf (which I LOVED in here so much ouch) and made way for a desk to give my husband a dedicated and quieter space on days he works from home, which has provided us with slightly more purpose in here. And a much needed pop of orange. We call this room the den, but it’s really our extra space where we would cut square footage if we could. Not that it’s a bad space at all. It opens up to the backyard with big sliding doors and offers great light and is, currently, wonderfully weird. We just aren’t exactly sure how the room can serve us best. We have considered making this the dining room (which creates more problems – what to do with our current one) or opening it up to the kitchen, but neither are compelling enough to act on. Maybe when our kids reach teenage years we will be thankful for the additional living space, but our living room turned family room is our main hang place, so for now this room is confusing. At least it is cute and cheerful while being confusing!
