There have been some modifications in the mini-loft library. Unable to ever settle on a bean bag chair, a flip chair was bought instead. This chair opens to go completely flat for a bed and has several reclining positions as the back rest lowers. It is most comfy.
A special order staircase newel was bought so it could be cut in two and it replaced the skinny entry posts that seemed out of scale and annoyed me. I like the fat posts better.
I almost had it finished, but as you can tell from the sagging horizontal wire railing, something is amiss. I have been stymied in my efforts to find a suitable way to fasten the newel posts to the floor. They do of course make a kit for that. Unfortunately I got a 3 1/2 inch newel and all the kits on the store shelves were for 3 inch newels. Plan C is now in the works. Plans A and B have already failed.
I am really really close now to having the mini-loft library completely done. As in Next! I may even break out my hand made especially for me Hawaiian quilt to go in the library.
It is snowing again and starting to stick. There is more snow in the diagnosis for Friday night into Saturday. If I can find what I need tomorrow to fasten my posts to the floor, I will be all ready to spend one of the remaining cold and snowy days of the winter all comfy and warm in the new library.
My indoor projects will be completed and it will be time to deal with the bats roosting under the eaves and pooping all down the side of the house. Can't have that for another year. The built in bat houses under my eaves were so nice the colony kept getting bigger.
