Change of Paint

  Maybe its the icy, wintry weather keeping us inside that makes us want to feather our nest. Or maybe its the start of a new year and the promise to tackle those projects that have been set a side for a while.

Whatever the reason, with a burst of energy, I decided this was a good time to freshen up our den.  Out with the old, and in with the new color ---rich, chocolate brown with white beadboard.

The den is my husband's room -- a place for him to put all his guy stuff.  Years ago he bought a massive oak roll top desk, oak bookcases as well as an oak display case & filing cabinets for his room.  Did I mention he likes oak?? 

But the room never was a cozy retreat.  And it was my fault.

I ignored the room, because I didn't know how (or want) to work with all that oak.  But now there's a plan:


My attitude changed, when I treated my husband like a client and listened to him.  (lesson learned!)   Who knew he had a design style?  Think  CRAFTSMAN - ART DECO - WILLIAM MORRIS -STICKLEY.  Its warm, cozy and masuline!

I'll keep you posted as the room comes together and becomes his very stylish "man cave."

Enjoy!
