So here's my new room. Yes, I am claiming it for myself. I'm selfish. The kids want to use it as a playroom but they are getting one of those as the renovation progresses. So it's all mine, I tell you!
This room used to be the darkest room in the house. In order to maximize the limited light, we painted the room white from top to bottom. Then we sprinted down to IKEA and snapped up the bookcases, desk and drawers. To spice things up a bit we also picked up this zesty orange sofa and colorful rug.
I'm so loving this room. It's bright and cheerful and everything is in order. Just as I like it.
Here's the before picture.
