Upstairs sitting room

After I have made the study, there was still half of the room on that side of the house. I had a rather ugly sofa and armchair from a flea market, and I thought that if I refirbished them I could have a sitting area adjacent to the study, for the writer to relax with a cup of coffee or talk to her publisher.


When I put the furniture into the house I realised the area was hazardous, a stairwell without railing.


 I made railing with grill sticks and a bit of squate dowel. It felt much better.

This is what it looks like today, with yet another sofa, a rug, some coffee tables (one made from a transparent paperweight and a plastic box lid), curtains, ornaments, knitting and a tea tray. Across the hall you can see the bathroom behind the CD box and the opposite blue wall. The bedroom is behind the partition with the bookshelf.
