Overall the room had good bones. The paint is in decent shape, despite how many people have moved in and out of this starter home in the last decade. Hardwood floors throughout, and cornices over each window. I love the charm that cornices add, plus it makes hanging curtains super easy. The hardware was already installed inside each box, all we had to do was place the curtain rod inside each cornice.
Here is a picture of what the room looked like the day after we closed. The rug you see is ours, we were just to eager to get started on this room.
I've been working on a priority list for each room of the house. The den needed the least work, so this list isn't too daunting. Here's what we've got.
Hang Pictures on either side of large window
Buy table for entryway near front door
Add to the wall with the sunburst mirror
Gas logs installed in fire place
Now I need y'alls help on the wall with the sunburst mirror. It just looks a little lonely up there. Any ideas on how I could fill that wall up? I would love to hear your suggestions.
