The nook is not finished, but all of the big pieces are in place. There are a handful of other small projects I need to complete. I'll have a full to-do list at the end of the post. So, without further adieu, here is the Library Nook in the Master Bedroom.
The bookcases line the only long wall. They are from Target. I originally bought two because I was unsure how it would look. Those two happened to be on sale for $25. When I went back for the third I had to pay full price at $32. I'm glad I waited because they are bigger that I thought. I don't know why but I assumed they would be the same size as the bookcases we have in the living room. I know they are practically empty right now. I'm working on it! I don't just want to fill it with filler books. I'm buying ones that I actually want to read or display.
The curtains are from Ikea and are Vivan in beige. I wanted something simple that would look good from both sides of the room. The master bedroom part is colored slightly different. So for they are working out perfectly.
I parted the curtains from the master bedroom side here. The nook is about 4x6. I had an extremely hard time with the angles.
The print is a new Goodwill find. Pretty sure it was $4.99. If you look carefully you can see the curve and shade of our Regolit floor lamp. I had originally wanted this lamp the first time we went to Ikea with my Mother in Law. I didn't get it then because I didn't know where I would put it. When we went back the second time I had a plan. Of course that plan went away. I'm glad the lamp worked out either way.
There is one actual opening. Right now the curtains are just pulled apart. As you can tell it's between the door to the hall and the half bath.
If you look closely towards the left you can make out the closet doors and the dresser in the master bedroom. I like that the curtains are light enough you can see through without being sheer.
This nook also has my second attempt at an abstract painting.
Like I mentioned earlier, all of the big pieces are in place. I just need to do the pretty, filler stuff.
Hang small curtain rod for window
Pick out panel for window (possibly Navy/Gold)
Find books to fill bookcases - A LOT-
Rug for space
new end table
art for above cases

So, really not a whole lot more over here. I need to bring in more navy, but I think the curtains will help a lot with that. I had a set in mind that I thought I had seen at Target. When I went back to get them they weren't there. Not that they were on sale and gone, or that they were just sold out. I mean, there wasn't even a spot for them. Maybe I dreamt them or something. But I have a curtain in mind, if I can find it. Next up is hanging the curtain rod. Shouldn't be a big deal right? :)
