Well, Roger has this room that is full of mounted animal heads.
Two years ago.
My thought was that it would be a room for my hubby - full of moose motifs, plaids and a really rustic kind of decorating. But after living here for awhile and putting this room on the back burner, it's just not going in that direction anymore. It's still sort of my hubby's room - his desk is in there - but I haven't been too sure where I am taking the direction of this room. Despited all of this, we still call it 'The Roger Raglin Room'.
I decided that I would give it a go and start putting the room together. I showed you a corner of it not too long ago. Well, here is another area.
I purchased this bookshelf on Kijiji for $50. It a HEAVY solid wood piece and nearly as tall as me. I used my free Glidden paint to give it a fresh new look. (Sugarpuffs! I had a before photo taken but it's not on my laptop. Imagine a golden wood color.)
Now, I hate the look of books. I know that they are hot in decorating - but I can't quiet stand the clutter-y look of them. I'd much rather they were behind closed doors. But until my money tree grows, I have a giant bookshelf. And I decided to turn the books on their side. This has a two-fold purpose. First off, the pages are pretty much the same color and that's more pleasing to my eye. And secondly, my hubby is always getting into his books. And it's sooo much easier to just plop a book back on top of the stack than to try and set it back on a neatly organized shelf. Piles work for us.
The barnwood is actually an American flag thing that I've had for a number of years. But the flag wasn't going with the look of the room. So I just flipped it over.
The star wreath is from a store here called Canadian Tire. It was a Christmas wreath - originaly reddy orange. Heirloom White took care of that. Ya'll know I love stars!
And I'm not shy of mentioning my love of fruit jars. Here are two blue Ball Mason jars and a clear Canadian Crown jar.
A clear glass Canadian Crown, a green Canadian Crown and a large blue Ball Mason. I bought all three blue Ball Masons in a set for $6. I love being from an antique-y area in PA!
Okay, how about a look at this area one more time. :)
