Our Nest

I know you've seen parts of this room before but Kelly at *Kelly's Korner*
is having a link party for bonus rooms so I'm 
linking up our TV Room.

  

TV Room.  Hummm.  I'm thinking I really date myself by calling it a "TV Room".  I think from now on I'm calling it a "Media Room".

Yeah, that's right.  I have a Media Room.  I'm cool.


Here's the story on the loveseat from an earlier post -- the loveseat was made from a antique bed belonging to my husband.  It was old and rickety and really wasn't sturdy enough to be used as a bed any longer. So, I took it apart, had the footboard cut in half (I thought I was going to throw up) and I put it all back together to make this cool loveseat.  Before, the kids were drawing straws to see who was going to have to take it when we're gone...Now, they're fighting over who gets it!




I painted this pair of florals and their frames.


Oh yes, that wild and crazy recliner is my office.


I built the book case to look like it was original 
to the house.


Here's the TV, for which the room is named, tucked into one of my favorite antiques.



I love this lamp.  Here's a look at the before version...
...Now it loves me back.


This converted room is the smallest of the bedrooms and is right off the kitchen -- what could be better?  It just made sense to make this our "bonus" room.  It has made a perfect little spot for us two nest empty-ers!

  3. Hi Lindy, I loved your settee from the first time I saw it. I bet it was really hard to start cutting the bed up. It is beautiful now!

    I love that day bed made from the old bed. I was going to ask about it before I saw you explain it. It is beautiful.
    I love your office. I say the same thing about where I sit and the little table in front of the couch. My office, hah.

  17. Found your post via Frugalicious Friday. Love the lamp and your headboard turned loveseat. The loveseat especially is just gorgeous, one of the best I've seen made from a headboard. I'm off to check out your diy post for it.

  24. I'm hopping over from Brenda's Cozy Little House to say Welcome! The makeover on the old bed is fantastic and makes a perfect little loveseat. We have a tv room too which is where we all congregate every day. Your paintings are lovely. And the lamp is so beautiful now. Hope you are having a great weekend. :) Tammy

  25. Still love this room Lindy. I think you've done an amazing job in here. The bed/sofa is the best one of all. Still want my son to make me a magazine cabinet like yours. Have a great weekend and an even greater Thanksgiving weekend.

  32. What a charming room! And a wonderful way of recycling your hubbys old bed. It's a beautiful focal point! Vanna

  33. Yes, this is YOUR room -- whatever you want to call it. My mother has always said that every woman deserves such a room. Where you can basically sit in a chair and reach everything you need from one spot. Well, almost. I think we should call it your "receiving room", full of charm and grace and a true reflection of the various aspects of YOU!
