I thought I would share my reading room with you before the
"redecorating" bug hits again and I change this room into something
else! I had been playing around with our reading room this past summer and think I have it the way I like it. My husband won't believe that! I am always asking him to move furniture. This room is directly off the kitchen and off the center hall that runs the length of our home. My grandmother's dining room table and buffet are treasured pieces in this room. I am using my grandma's table as a reading table of sorts. What do you think? I also added two comfy recliners for reading a good book on a dreary day. Between the chairs is a turtle table purchased for a song at an antique store in Florida. I love this room. I have found it to be a perfect spot for my morning Bible study. My husband does his Bible study in this room as well. Another added bonus is that when I need additional
dining room seating, I can bring in the chairs, clean the table off, and
I have an additional dining room for guests.
Here is a view of the buffet table. It has the original glass knobs that as a child, I found fascinating. I also remember sitting on the slats under the table. For some reason, I thought that no one would see me! My sweet boys hang above the buffet. There is also a plate on the buffet which has the verse, "These are the sons God has given me" Genesis 48:9. They are certainly a gift from God. I picked up the plate several years ago at Mistletoe Market Place. Mistletoe is a fabulous fundraiser held by the Junior Auxiliary of Jackson, MS. There are always unique and lovely items at the event.
While I was taking these pictures, my little maltipoo, Luke Bailey, was darting in and out. I laughed when he finally plopped down as if to say, "Take my picture too"!
