Redecorating SD23's Old Room
So now that we've turned the page on last year's drama of getting SD23 fully out of our home, SO and I have officially decided to convert her old room into a Whiskey Lounge. We are going to convert the closet into a small bar area (with bar seating for two), change the carpet to wood floor, re-paint the room, install an electric fireplace (can't do gas in that location) with comfy leather chairs, area rugs, and maybe a card table. No TV but we'll have some nice speakers for music.
It is also icing on the cake that SD23 will be completely p*ssed that we changed her old room at all let alone to a bar. She will likely complain to SO that he places booze ahead of her and of course it will be my fault. We'll be sure to feel remorseful when we are sitting by our (faux) fire sipping a nice whiskey. NOT.
I am super excited about the re-decorating project. I ordered samples of brick textured wallpaper for the background of the 'bar' area and need to settle on the flooring and paint colors. The goal is to get the room redecorated this year as I may end up retiring (or at least taking a long sabittical) from the corporate world in the next year or two, and would like to have a nice space to relax and curl up with a good book, or do some crafts. SO is totally excited too!
