THIS IS WHAT WINTER LOOKS LIKE

The North East States had a blizzard this week
Now maybe I'm being a bit cocky because it completely bypassed Montreal ( for a change )
BUT - I can't believe the 24 hour ( + ) coverage that went on about a winter storm ( key word being WINTER )

Snowmageddon?

Nah...............c'mon guys, it's a winter snow storm - it's not a phenomenal occurrence - it's a perfectly natural one.
My heart aches for those that lose power - because that's no picnic ( believe me I know )
But other than that?
Take the day off if you have to - but also take a moment to peek outside - OR better yet take a walk in it -because it can truly be a magnificent site to behold !

I had to giggle when all the reporters were spreading panic and they stopped someone on the street - and they just shrugged and said " it's winter "  leaving the reporter looking a little defeated LOL

Built In Plans.............................

When we moved in last winter this room off the entrance way was closed off - making the feel narrow and dark.
This is on the left side when you enter the house - the living room is on the right
We opened it up to create a small den ( more like a t.v nook really )  directly across from the living room - and to allow much needed light to flow through this ( kind of ) dark house.


But we never finished it ...................

For many many months now it's looked like this ( this house has very high ceilings )


I try not to look up as much as I can ......................but I'm developing a hunch in my back from staring at the floor so it's time to do something about it now.

Except I wasn't sure what I wanted to do - and to be honest with you there's been so much work going on everywhere else in this house that it just kept getting pushed and pushed further back -
I'd come up with an idea and then work on gutting out another room - and so on and so on - but this weekend it hit me - out of the blue - more built ins - but this time framing the doorway !
( I think this will be the Maison du Livres - House of Books lol )

Here's some inspiration I've found

I love them all - but this one is my all time favorite - I wonder how hard it would be to install an arched wall and surrounding book shelves?
( it's not happening lol )

So there you have it - I've added on to the 354 projects lined up for this year
( and even then this place won't be finished )

Have a wonderful Monday all !
Much love,
Me
