Chimbrary Progress

We've been redoing an upstairs bedroom and one of the things we did is take out a wall and turn the attic into a little library...or at least we're working on it.

Here's how we did it. First my husband and his brother framed it in.

Then they put in insullation.

And built in a little bench behind the chimney for laying down in a little hideaway for reading. . . what a peaceful retreat. Then they started sheetrocking it.

Then when that was done, we started painting it.

We still need to put in the wainscoting and do some finishing touches but we've come a long way since we started back here.

I love this idea. Can't wait to see photos of the space when it's done.
