Here it is with the tulip table that I bought a couple of years ago just for this space. I think it actually looks really pretty, but it's not very practical if you want to open the bookcase doors. So back upstairs it went.
I'm still considering spray painting the curtain rod gold. Yes, I know, enough of the gold already! But I really like the look of brass curtain rods and because the window is bowed, I had to make a curtain rod out of PVC pipe. I should probably do a tutorial on that one because I'm sure there are many people with bowed windows that don't know what kind of curtain hardware they can use.
I'm not sure about the dead space between the curtain rod and the top of the window frame. Maybe with the rod painted it won't look so odd to me. I may even see what it looks like with matchstick blinds, but that again depends on whether I can hang them with the bow.
Roman got a new drum kit for his birthday/christmas. I swear he chose the finish and wasn't influenced by me at all. See that boy has good taste. It's way bigger than his old drum kit, besides being a jazz kit which is smaller than regular kits. But it still manages to take up the vast majority of the room, especially because he has 4 huge cymbals. And it is really loud! Hope the neighbors don't complain.
Call me a glutton for punishment, but I'm thinking of entering Apartment Therapy's Room for Color Contest again. I know, it's just a popularity competition, but I do have fun doing it. And although this room isn't perfect, I do think it has something unique about it that may appeal to the Apartment Therapy readers. So wish me luck.
