I am really happy with the big chair in the study...I will be re-arranging the furniture in the study when basement is finished, and I will slide the chair into the corner between the two giant windows. So you will no longer see it from the hall. I will use that long wall for a dresser/console/thingy for office stuff! I don't have a dresser/console/thingy yet... I'll keep you posted...
As for the bedroom, I keep going back and forth on the big black dresser. We love the dresser. Perfect size, quality piece of furniture...but its too dark. So I was going to paint it white (and maybe new handles just because)...or maybe re-stain it...or maybe strip it and leave it raw with some sort of clear coat? I really don't know right this moment, but I will be changing it.
1 Its kinda a gloomy day outside, and I couldn't get the camera to co-operate (yes, DH has shown me 1 million times how to use the camera, but I get everything all jumbled up...)...so I attempted to brighten the photos in Photoshop (yes DH has shown me 1 million times how to use photoshop, but I get everything all jumbled up.)........Can you please show me, AGAIN? Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!2. It will be reupholstered!
3. Yes we have a huge cord running up the hallway, two of them actually...they will disappear after the basement is finished.
