So, I threw in a neglected piece of our couch sectional that doesn't fit in the couch. Hopefully that's NOT staying here, but instead, we'll get two, small but comfortable chairs for this area. It may take awhile before that actually happens. And as you can see, there's lots of "growing" room for more books.
I still want to put a big plant where that lamp is, to fill that area and make it look more centered. Then find a better, brighter lamp to put somewhere, probably on top of that little shelve. Oh, and I'm going to make different curtains for the window than what I had there before. So, that's still in the works too, and will make it fill much more cozy once they are done and up.
Anyway, there's been progress, and I'm having so much fun with it! What a blast!
