client project

You guys are GREAT!!
Thank you for all your encouraging comments that the ugly, scary diy will work out.
 It truly does give me a much needed dose of confidence!

I have a quick post for you today to share a client project I'm starting.
We're working on their formal living room that doesn't get much use, my goal is to
create a cozy space where they can hang out. The plan is a casual and comfortable library,
 but since the space is visible from the front entry it needs to be somewhat sophisticated. 
We'll be using Ikea bookcases with added trim for a built-in look.
Wouldn't a library ladder be the coolest detail?
I haven't mentioned it to them yet, but they're usually on board for my suggestions.

I'm thinking something rustic.
Do you love them as much as I do?

Love each inspiration pic. Clever Pam, always ideas... Good luck with the shower painting, that is a no brainer for someone of your abilities. Knew you would work out the blind, love it!

Kim @ Plumberry Pie said...

Yep, the ladder is super cool!

Jennifer Bridgman said...

Yes, love, such a cool detail!

Cathy Wall said...

What an awesome touch that would be! Sounds like a fun project with a willing client, enjoy!

Love that last photo - I know you'll help to make this formal living room a room that they will enjoy being in round the clock. When we are looking at homes I often think how we would use what is staged to be a "formal" type of room.

I LOOOOOOOVE library ladders! I have wanted a room called a "library" in my house since I was a little girl, and the ladder totally completes the look! Too bad my ceilings are not high enough to warrant one…I hope your client goes for it!

Lori said...

Beautiful photos! I love the idea especially for a small house where every room should be used. Thank you Pam!

Pam...years ago I found a library ladder at a thrift store for $5.00...Its in perfect condition and I love it!

I like the direction you are going! I have always loved the look of a library ladder. I'm sure they'll love the idea, too! :)

I do love library ladders. Congrats on your client project! I can't even get to blogging lately Ive been so busy with several children's rooms at the moment. Hope to finish my ORC roman shade this week, too. YOurs looks great. Did you end up sewing rings on the back and using string? did you put a rod or weight in the bottom? That's my plan. Hope your shower stall painting is going well.
