In the decision about the chairs, I was leaning towards the Nest Chair, but still waffling a little bit. That is, until I found Winter a nest chair of his own.
At the drug store, no less. On sale, for 40% off.
And so, because I'm so easily swayed by pet decor, I've decided to go with the Nest Chair. I'm thinking of something in a deep red, or olive green to best show off my angora cat's white hair.
(Please God, let me come to my senses between now and when the insurance claim is processed.)
I already had pet portraits in the room, but thanks to some assistance from the Zadge, I have a new addition:
It's still on the floor because I'm waiting until the room is furnished before I hang it up.
Since I'm going to turn the room into a library, I've been looking at shelving. I'm thinking of something about 40" high, almost all the way around the room. I really like cubbies, but am worried that some items or books won't fit into a 12" by 12" square. So, right now, I'm thinking of making something myself... something that's a mix between this:
The second picture came from Ana White.com, where she has free patterns for DIY Furniture. I'll probably make a few variations of this, to work in both cubbies and shelves, but three layers high.
So, those are the plans. I'm raring to go, but am waiting for the insurance company. If anybody knows how to light a fire under them, I'd sure appreciate some ideas. Until then, the front room of my house is empty, taunting me with ideas.
