R is for…
Otherwise known as our “den”.
The den is on the main floor next to the living room, and across the hallway from the dining room. I imagine when the house was built, a tea room or a smoking room or some such sitting room. We have installed in this room our bookshelves, and a few pieces of furniture, as well as our ex-feral cat Nicholas, who likes to keep to this room as much as possible, hiding behind and under the couch. Since Elliot has turned into a hate-on for Nicholas machine, Nico doesn’t venture out much except when Elliot is sacked out upstairs. Nico loves his other brothers. Maybe someday this shall pass…one can only hope.
Enough of our dysfunctional family. Here is our den, aka reading room:
Here it was when we first took possession:
And here it is after we moved in:
And here it was after we unpacked
And here it is today after having the windows fixed
And the blinds installed
That’s it for the den, until we decide to paint. It would have been nice to see this room, I think, with the original ceiling and hardwood. The wood is painted now (the only room in the house that has its wood painted though) and there is a drop ceiling covering the original ceiling, which is the same as the ceiling in the foyer area. So, perhaps one day the drop ceiling will go too. Time will tell!
