Desk before.  It was a work table in our basement.  I traded out the table we were using for a desk.

My mother in-law did a much needed reupholster job on this antique settee I picked up at a Maine yard sale maybe 4 or 5 years ago.

New paint on walls & trim.  New curtains.  Curtains placed closer to ceiling to give an illusion of more vertical height.

I distressed the wood on the settee to give it a rustic urban feel.  My mother in-law did a fantastic job!
