When I started to gather design inspiration for this room, I fell in love with the Rodney White print
that hangs on the wall. My husband surprised me with it one Christmas and I mounted it to the front of a wood frame I built from 1×2’s. I painted the frame black and then used old roofing nails to secure the print to the front. I keep it right above my computer. The print reads:
“We tend to seek happiness, when happiness is actually a choice.”
It’s there to remind me of the condition of my heart. While I’m pouring over Pinterest, gathering inspiration, and pinning up a storm, I like to keep things in check. It’s so easy to focus on what you don’t have instead of being thankful for what you do. I really struggle with contentness and even though I’ve come a long way compared to when I was younger, I still like to have this here as a reminder to make the best of what I have in all circumstances.
On the third wall, I have a hutch and dining table set up for our homeschool station. They are cast-off’s from my cousin that I painted a fun color (Valspar’s “Twilight Meadow”). I used vinyl sheeting over the table and it has kept the table clean and unblemished for nearly 2 years. Best $4 I ever spent for that space! On each side are two tall bookshelves that were part of our old entertainment center. I couldn’t bear to paint them; they are part of the Broyhill “Fontana” Collection, and I still love it. It’s whitewashed pine from the nineties, but it has a timeless appeal, in my opinion.
