But I digress, this is really about a tiny room off the master bedroom, right beside the bathroom. Sis said it used to be a bedroom, that sort of computes, as there are two closets in it. There are also two good size windows in it, so it gets plenty of natural light. The thing is though, is that it's not really big enough to be a bedroom. It's long and narrow, maybe 11 X 6 and to get to it, you have to walk through the bedrooms or the bathroom. Sis used it as office space at one time, but when her kids moved out, she opted to move the office into their old room. Now the room is sort of a dressing area with storage which we've decided to decorate. These photos were taken the first day when the objective was to clear the way to prepare for painting. I'll keep you posted on our progress. In the mean time, can you imagine what you would do with a space of that size? Short of knocking down walls that is. We need all the ideas we can get.

A New Room!
I'm curious about the guy who over 100 years ago decided to build a house on this particular piece of land. One or two things have become clear since being here, he was smart to have selected acreage with some elevation. Sis and I were especially grateful to him for that a couple of weeks ago when many of our neighbors were flooded out of their homes. He must have planted the 2 oak trees around the same time he built the house because today they are massive, their roots incredibly deep and widespread across the floor of the front and back yards. The gigantic branches hover like umbrellas over the roof, keeping things cool and shady through the summer months.
