Here's a pic of Gary, my studio assistant, laying on his window perch. He was feeling somewhat displaced and kept wandering around the room howling until I brought his perch in. Talk about a creature of habit.
I decided to paint the nook a really dark slate grey because I have a plan to paint a design in that area with the lighter grey that is the room color. I wanted it to feel very cocoon-like but I also wanted a hit of a bright color so I painted the edge of the wall a bright lime green called "New Lime" by Benjamin Moore. Here's what the nook looked like after painting:
Next up was finding the chairs. After I struck out on finding anything Friday night, I went to another flea market we have here called Urban Mining. That's where I found these awesome red velvet Hollywood Regency chairs! So much for Queen Anne. This is much more me anyway:) I also found these fantastic little faux bois tables at the same place. LOVE Urban Mining!
Next will be getting the floor redone, recovering the chairs and painting the tables. This is taking alot longer than I thought it would and I'm getting a bit tired of having my desk in the living room
BUT I think it will definitely be worth it.
