Kelley has a secretary from the Bell house that she’s saved for me. The place where it will make the most sense is the kitchen nook which currently houses the map chest and some shelves.
So I’ve been working on plans for the it— on the left is what it looks like now; on the right is a rough draft in Photoshop of my plan. I’m going to paint that wall as an accent wall to help unify that expanse with the brick chimney behind the stove.
The shelves will come down, but those do-dads will work nicely inside, and leave room for some stemware. (The change will also encourage me to find a place for the miscellaneous boxes that have been sitting there looking an eyesore!) Now, someone go buy that Amsterdam painting on the left. It’s on Etsy for sale.
