I say ALMOST because I still need to find and hang curtains, organize the secretary desk and then there’s the whole throw pillow situation :) I haven’t decided if I want to add more color or if I want to make it a neutral back drop for all the colorful books.
But Here’s what we’ve got to far.

  • Our A-Z book ends with some of my favorite books. And Our Telescope! Disregard the pictures Eventually I’ll be replacing the photos (frames are staying)

Our Christmas Gift from my sister. A set of original oil paintings, painted by My Sister. I, sadly, got the short end of the talent stick, my mom is also a very talented artist. I on the other hand once turned a paint by numbers canvas into something that resembled mud on paper.

And Now the Secretary Desk!!! Just a Ikea one we use to have it in our Guest Bedroom in the OLD Manor. It fit perfectly into the corner of the Library. Paired with an old Windsor Chair it’s the perfect little desk for bills, letters and general office-y things :) My next project will be organizing the Desk!
