here are some quick before & after shots of the “playroom/guest room” upstairs.  the first two photos are of the room when it was at the front of the house (upstairs), while the “new” guest room is at the back of the house, in the boys’ former bedroom.  we just did a flip-flop so the boys could have a bit more space in their room.  phil & i love this big turquoise-ish couch that we bought years ago — i would tell you how we had to remove the entire window & hoist the couch up through it in order to move it from downstairs to upstairs, but that’s a story for another day…   i especially love this couch with the mustard-y yellow walls — so we painted the new guest room the same color as the old one…  also, Target had a particularly genius moment this summer in their throw pillow aisle, as you’ll see evidence of scattered around the couch.  you can’t see the TV off to the right side in the final picture.  we finally broke down this spring and purchased a large flatscreen TV (after having gone several years without cable and with a super small TV), so this room is really the media room, where a lot of video games are played and TV shows (via Hulu & Netflix, still) and movies are watched.  the little table is from my favorite market down in Denver (Stapleton, actually — the Sweet William Market), and it fits perfectly — giving us a place to rest our feet or place our drinks.  it’s a cozy little space, and i love the way it turned out!

where did we move all those beautiful black & white portraits, you ask?  we moved them into the stairwell, on a newly painted wall.  Instead of spreading them out around the house, we formed a gallery of sorts and placed them all on the same tall wall.  i absolutely LOVE seeing these precious faces of our boys as i go up and down the stairs multiple times a day…
