Library Progress Report

I have yet to decide what to call this room. Library? Den? Study? Office? What best suits it? I don’t know. At this point it remains a work in progress. Though I have made progress. Check it out.

My wife and I refinished this desk. (She finds the process of sanding, staining, and varnishing a relaxing experience. Who am I to deny it her?) $25 from a thrift store. The desk still requires a chair. What I’ve placed there is a make-do until I can afford the chair I have in mind. The mostly empty book case is temporary. $25 on Craigslist. (Actually, $22. The seller could not make change for a $20 and accepted the lesser amount.) I hope to replace it with a better piece at some point.

Some gaps in the decorating remain. I’ve some knives I’d like to display. And I’ll need to buy some sort of sleeper-sofa. I hope room remains for a side table or chess table. My fancy pants chess set rests in a box in the garage. It must be freed!

So, it’s coming along. Time and money will see it complete.
