My weird little space down the bottom of my stairs

Posted on Thu, 22 Mar 2012 by midcenturyjo

I’m not finished… but this is the strange little space which is part entry hall/part useless area in my new old house. We only ever pass across it or turn to climb the stairs. With no money to spend I pasted up some old book pages and moved in some vintage furniture from other rooms. It definitely needs more finessing but you can hear me whine about it discuss it over on Jo’s Page. Maybe when I go back to work and earn some money in the next few weeks I can make it a bit more presentable. At least that’s an incentive to go back to work 😉

Finished? Don't know that word…

I love the wall paper paper wall, and the picture, you have given your orphan space vitality.

I love what you did on the walls – I remember the debate about fake bookcase wallpaper – this looks awesome.

Thanks everybody! The main thing about this space was that I had no money to spend and a desperate itch to do something to it. Whole thing cost me less than $25 … and lots of gluing individual pages.
