Reclaiming Our Attic...

 Our attic bedroom has been a decorative afterthought for as long as I can remember.  Over the years we've done little things to spruce it up here and there, but the poor room has never really received our full attention.  Besides being a quirky corner filled space it was full of wall-to-wall beige carpeting and Leif and I hate carpet. We have plans to do a ton of home improvement projects this spring and I managed to get an insanely good deal on getting that pitiful carpet ripped out and replaced.  Unbeknownst to Leif I squirreled away a bunch of money to use to create a sitting room in the front corner of our bedroom.  I surprised him with the finished space yesterday!
 Needless to say, he was thrilled.  He and the kids spend a great deal of of time up there while I am cooking for folks and I just really wanted them all to have a comfortable and pretty place to hang out.  Sure it is a tiny little space, but now it feels much bigger than it really is.  Leif can catch up on work in the comfy chairs or set up the computer on the coffee table to watch movies with the kids.  All three of them are so supportive of me that it  made me crazy happy to do this for them.
