However, an upgrade for the space has been on the back of my mind for some time now, and last weekend that finally happened.
Here's the before; pardon the mess, but it all shifts around on a regular basis as I better organize the books and cut and sew fabric.
We took all the furniture out of the room except the bookshelves, and rolled up the old rug, which led to the sad discovery that in the year or so since we originally pulled up the old rug, there was some bad sun fading to the beautiful hardwood floors.
This room got more direct sunlight than almost any other in the house - definitely more than any other room that has the exposed hardwood. So that's a lesson learned for me, I guess. It's not a problem going forward, though, because after vacuuming and cleaning up a bit, we unrolled a new rug in the space.
With the unrolling of the rug, the treadmill went elsewhere, and I am working hard to organize the books still further. I'm even - gulp - setting aside boxes to donate and/or sell to our local used bookstore.
This room isn't 100% done yet; my longterm goal for this room is to do built-in shelving all the way around. That's a few years off, though. So this is how it will live in the near term!
I"m very jealous that you have a library. One day I too will have a room for my books.ReplyDelete
Hand knotted area rugs are typically made in countries that are world renown in rug weaving with a long history. Iran, also known as Persia in old times, is an undisputed pioneer in the hand knotted rug weaving practice.ReplyDelete
