Here's how we were thrifty:
1. Carpet is remnant from BIL
2. Paint was left over from dining room redo
3. Sofa was a trash find, SIL had the cushions
4. Pair of chairs a steal at town wide yard sale at shore
5. Little houses were a DIY project
6. Frames half off and came matted, artwork from Etsy
7. Of course we always do all the work ourselves.
Can you see what that plaque says? "Why suffer in silence, when i can moan, whimper, and complain." Hysterical.
It's definitely not big out here at all, it's a long and narrow space. But it's literally where you'll find me the moment it gets nice. I open all the windows, the skylight, pipe the music in, and curl up with a book. This little one loves it too. She actually talks to the birds and squirrels, it's a strange sound. That white ribbon on the ground is a cat toy. Pretend you don't see it, mm kay? We even installed a cat door so she can have access when we aren't there.
There is one thing, and one thing only, that is a real thorn in my side about this room. I had a clear vision for everything else. Drapes. Blasted drapes or other window coverings. I am pretty sure i don't need them, especially now that my leaning words are anchoring the windows. I don't want to cover up the windows or the trimwork and i don't think i need to. What do you think?
Tell me you agree with me and say good job.
