Bad lighting, good changes: chalkboard paint wall, new-to-me vintage dresser, up-down table (goes from coffee table to dining height), IKEA chair that I’ll be slipcovering, vintage orange armchairs, IKEA dining chairs… and a cat in a sunny spot on an ottoman.
Remaining tasks: paint the big table and dresser tops in glossy white paint; hang curtains (maybe); clean up the cluster of a desk in the corner you can’t see in this pic; slip cover the IKEA chair. Oh, and lighting that doesn’t suck. The paper lantern is functional but kills my eyes.
Am also considering painting the ceiling in an ever-so-slightly-sunshiny color (which thankfully, I already own and have used in other rooms).
Oh, right, and find another place for the cats to eat. See the ugly mixing bowl on the table?
