I've taken the first baby steps towards changing this room...with little kids to watch after, you've got to do all projects in baby steps! So, stuccoed the holes, today sanded that. I have white not-so-yucky primer, which will be a necessity no matter what color I wind up repainting this room, since the red is so dark.
Plans for this black chair: I would like to slipcover it in white cotton. It has an enormous ottoman that I would also cover. And put these upstairs. (I am smirking at what a huge project that alone is! ha!)
Blue chair: is really too small for in here, and was intended for Stella's bedroom, anyways. Will move it up there.
This slipcover will be easier to change, if I decide to. The colors of this chair as it is go alright in my bedroom, and I think the chair would do well in there. However, in a land where I have no money or time constraints, I would also make a new slipcover for this chair, again in white cotton, and with a skirt. Since I can remove this slipcover and use as a pattern, this is definitely a doable project, although I'm sure it is trickier than it at first would seem.
I don't know what to do with this room otherwise...still thinking about colors, a rug (some day), and trying to decide - what is the real function of this room? Right now nobody goes in here, nothing happens here. other than the occassional piano playing.
Also, I hope to someday find something I can hang from this chandelier which will make it less formal, and more whimsical. Remove some crystals, replace with --- beads? ornaments? oragami? not sure.
All just thoughts, things to occupy my mind when I would rather not think about the more immediate things I SHOULD be doing! :)
