Bookworm's Bedroom

Today Bookworm's balloon shade was installed in her room. I LOVE it! I've had this fabric for some time, and have debated as what type of window treatment to do. It's a rather wide window (around 74" wide), and I came up with the idea to have bookcases built on either side with a bench under the window. That'll be a project for this spring;-)

I may not have told y'all, but I've designed a few pieces of custom furniture. Here's one of them. It's a 3 piece bookcase. All 3 pieces fit into a base, then they're screwed together. Doc Lancelot and his dad made this for me. They did a great job, didn't they?

I'll probably paint both the bookcase and the chest of drawers in a lighter color. Both pieces were done when we lived in our Georgian house, also shown here. They seem a little dated with the faux finish.

I added Target's Liberty of London pieces to the blue comforter we already had.

There's still lots of finishing touches to do. There's absolutely nothing on the walls and she also needs a rug. I'm inspired to finish things up now that the adorable shade is up.

Have a great Monday!
