Room in the Making

I am checking things off my to-do list! The chair has been painted white and the cushions have been made! The fabric is just plain brown. I always seem to gravitate towards prints, but I think solid is the way to go in this bedroom. It is a rather small room so less is more.

Remember the ottoman? All it can hold is a few books or maybe a cup of tea.

The lamp behind the chair was made by my father. He has so many lamp parts that he could open up his own store. I love the little gold bird. It adds so much to the base of the lamp. The lamp is too pretty to hide behind the chair, I just put it there for the picture. The picture looked a bit boring without it. Is that called staging a room? I know there is a name for it.
Thanks for visiting!

That lamp base is a treasure. I have some lamp parts in my basement. I've no idea what to do with them...I just like them.

As I am a bird lover - I love that pillow and the lamp especially!!

That looks like the perfect corner to sit down with a cup of hot tea and read a great book! I love the bird lamp your father made.
