The Lounge

We've been working on this room FOR-EV-ER! It's supposed to be Jerome's lounge...a place for him and his friends to play music and hang out, or for me to escape to when they're playing video games in the living room. It's also our music room (vinyl records ONLY) and a display room for some of our vintage electronics collection.

No matter how much we tried, we couldn't work up the motivation to organize the junk we kept throwing in the lounge. After much complaining, we finally buckled down and got the room in working order. There's still more to do, but we're getting there!

The mustard yellow rug was $25 from Building 19. Awesome score!

Jerome's toys

A chest Jerome's dad refinished. Eventually we'll move the orange couch and chair from the living room into here, but for now this chest is the perfect height for the stained glass window.

Our record player. We're going to get rid of that green table and put the player in it's official spot with the speakers mounted. We're also going to take down some of the framed records and put more shelves up to hold our collection.

Everything in this picture (with the exception of Freddie Mercury, the pic of us, and the Rolling Stones book) is vintage. There's even more spread throughout the house!


  1. Great job! It looks like such a fun room :)

  2. Thanks guys! That blue chair took a lot of work (it used to be an ugly vinyl outdoor chair) but now I love it. I have another in my bedroom that I painted brown. They're so comfy :)
