Okay, for me the first thing I did was take off the ugly wall paper border, and the side panels on the windows. Then I took the window side panels turned them upside down backwards and made CD, DVD shelves on the wall. I added on the outside wall a small wooden shelf corbel. Perfect size for the CD’s and DVD’s.
Now for my furniture. We got ride of all the furniture except for the bed.
We first purchased a nice rocking leather recliner and a great Ashley double reclining high back leather sofa. Yes they both fit nicely, but I wanted a bit more room.
Then I dismantled the big sofa ( my husband thought I was nuts ) and put the the two recliners together and made a love seat.
Then I took the center seat of the sofa and made a new chair. Purchased some leather to match it for the sides where they don’t cover it completely and I made big side pockets on both sides of the chair big enough to fit my laptop into. I put decorative nail heads along the sides of the pockets to match the foot stool I purchased to go in front of the chair. Turned out beautiful and my husband loves it. Gave us a lot more room.Read More
