Taming the Shame
Feb 22, 2012
Uh oh, it looks like Alicia from Thrifty and Chic had a "Room of Shame." What probably began as a temporary place to stash some extra furniture and craft supplies, had slowly morphed into nothing but a destination to avoid on home tours. "What's behind that door, Alicia?" "What door? Oh THIS door? Um, it's the basement." "But you don't have a basement!" "I know! It's ... it's, uhh, unfinished. Just a dirt hole back there. Let's move along, shall we? Have I shown you the coat closet yet?" "But how can that be a basement if we're on the second floor?" "I SAID MOVE ALONG!"
At least, that's how I imagined it. Alicia, who is actually very nice and wouldn't really yell at you on a home tour, was ready to reclaim this space. She wanted to create a dually functioning office and guest room, and managed to do both perfectly. The clever curtain system hides all her office necessities, and now it's absolutely serene and dreamy. And that headboard? I'm a fan.
