The Bonus Room

Hello Everyone!
It's time for Met Monday hosted by Susan.
I never thought I would show you our bonus room
but I decided this week it was time for a spiffing up.
This is our workout room and pet lounge.
It now functions as my reading nook as well.
Here is the before and after.
I added a new bookcase and a chair from Sams Club.
We donated the old stereo to Goodwill.
It really opened up the space to decorate.
The blue paint is called Birdbath and is
by Martha Stewart at Sherwin Williams.
I added a throw and circle pillow from Target.
The little circle table I found at Marshalls.
The design matches and it was on clearance for $20.
I love it when that happens!
The candle holder and soy candle are from Target.
I added artwork in here and it looks nicer.
It's from Target. I spray painted the M black.
A bucket of curly ting to hide a cord.
The lamp is from Target. I added the A for my hubs initial.
Here is Chestnut's stuff. I know he is spoiled.
I won't show you the closet full of his toys.
You will think I'm the silly cat lady. Here is our buddy Lloyd the cockatiel.
He's nine years now. He's really getting older.
Have a wonderful week!

Came to read about your tea party for Lady Katherine. I posted one too.

Pretty teapot and a donut, yum! I love your room transformation and
I think Target is going to be my new favorite store. I recently purchased some really cute things from Target.

The room looks great and so nice to have multifunctioned. I'm doing by best to use a room and the equipment in it just like that one. It's a battle. I hope I win.

Kristens Creations said...

Hi Melissa, I'm glad you decided to post this room. I think it turned out great, you did a great job at pulling it all together. Love all the accessories you added. Chestnut has it made! Want another cat? We have a stray that is so sweet. I keep telling Kevin I'm going to take her to the humane society, but I haven't yet (might not...shhhh). He just looked at her and said "She's still here?" Ooops...lol! Anyways, love how the room turned out, what a perfect place to read and workout. Happy Birthday to Lady Katherine!! Kristen

DesignTies said...

Nice transformation :-) I really like your reading nook. The cushion and table with the circles are awesome, and the price on that table is great!! :-)

This room looks so relaxing even if it is a workout room. Love the color. You did a wonderful job.

Bo said...

Hi Melissa...yet another beautiful room in your wonderful home...I did not know cockatiels lived that long...I had a pair years ago...
Another sweet tea party in honor of our Lady Katherine...she seems to be missing in action...I pray she's busy celebrating! ;-) Bo

That table and pillow are perfect together. Your bonus room is so together and still looks very relaxing. I love your artwork too. What would we do without Target?

KBeau said...

Nice job on the makeover. Love the color blue that you chose. So calm looking.

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Melissa, that wall color is so soothing. This room looks great! If this is your room you'd never show, I'm sorry I've shown any of my rooms! Love the blue/brown combination. Your tea set is so pretty. laurie

tardevil said...

Love that blue paint color & the lamp too. The room looks great. I need to do the same to my bonus room, except I have about 100 boxes in there. ICK! You're going to be like me & have to move just so you have something else to decorate/shop for! LOL!

Carisa said...

I love the black and white art photos. It seems like such a serene room.

Hi Melissa! Oh, what a wonderful room! You've done a wonderful job in spiffing it up, too! First of all - the wall color is so soft and pretty! Love all your new bargain pieces! I love that too! Now there you go throwing in the exercise equipment and making me feel bad.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

kymber said...

Hi Melissa,
What a great room! So cozy! Looks like a great place to get away to relax in.

I had to smile when I saw your kitty's palace. You would die laughing if you saw all of the toys that our furbaby Ginger has! She is quite the little diva. Glad to see I am not the only one who spoils her pet! :-)

Blessings to you,
Kymber

Chari said...

Hello Dearheart...

Ohhh yea!!! Love your bonus/workout (& relax) room, Girlfriend! How nice to have the space to have such a room...although, I have no idea what you're talking about...I've seen your photos, Melissa!!! You're gorgeous, Girlfriend!

What a beautiful transformation! You know, I would think it's pretty difficult to warm up an excersize room but you certainly did it!!! I love your new chair and ottoman...sure looks comfy! And...that little table is awesome! I love all of the circle designs on it and you're absolutely right about the pretty pillow and the table complimenting one another so beautifully!!! Love your new bookshelves and all of your new art! Of course you know that I had to enlarge every photo to get all of the detail...so many pretty things! Love that blue soy candle and candleholder! And...I love that cute Paris bucket too...great idea using the long stems to hide the cords!!! It's all so beautiful...what a fabulous transformation!!! Great job!!!

So sweet of you to honor Lady Katherine on her birthday with a lovely tea! Happy Birthday, Katherine!!!

Well Sweetie...I'm writing a book as usual. Guess I better quit..hehe! Have a marvelous Monday!
Love ya,
Chari

abeachcottage said...

Sarah

Cathy said...

Melissa,
Great work!!! The room looks so sharp and pulled together. I love the color combo...one of my favorites. I love all the new pretties you showed in the post... you have such a great eye!!!

Wish Lady Katherine a Happy Birthday for me!!!

Hope you have a great day!!!
XOXO

marty39 said...

Melissa, the room looks just lovely. Doesn't it always make you feel so good to change a few things. Just seem to add a whole new room. Beautiful tea party also. Love it. Hugs, Marty

Debbie said...

Very nice multi-purpose room. You did a great job. I love the table and what a great price. I love finds like that. Debbie

Karen said...

Good job. Sometimes it's just the little things ... what a nice room for you to go veg out in. We've all had rooms like that. It's hard with exercise equipment (which I was glad to see was not the local "clothes to be ironed" pile. HA!) old hand me down stuff. But we all need a room to put our "stuff in". You did a wonderful job making into a much, much more pleasant space to relax in.
Tea looks YUMMY!
Have a great day! Karen

ann said...

Well done Melissa.I didn't know you had a bird.Is he tame?I have 2 exactly like him.Mine are free.I have an aviary.Do you turn cartoons on for him since he's alone?My vet suggested it mine love it.Afterall they have to have "something"to do all day.They love the bright colors and the noise.....Ann

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

I am stopping by via BNOTP. Great transformation!

Debbie @ ribbonwoodcottage.blogspot.com said...

Oh this is wonderful. I really like the bonus room and what you have done. The colors are relaxing. I need to get one of those little signs that says 'relax' on it!!!! Great post today. Don't you love Target too? I love what you have gotten there!
Blessings,
Debbie

Meme said...

What a comfy space you have. Love the cockatiel, I have a female that is 19 years old and her name is Rocky. (We thought she was a boy when we got her). Happy Met Monday!

Karen at Nittany Inspirations said...

I like the colors in your room. Good job.

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

What a wonderful shade of blue your room is!
Pretty teascape as well -- thank you for your sweet visit to my blog - come back and visit anytime!

Deb said...

Great job on your room, my dogs have so many toys, if only they would put them back in their toy box...I have had fun going to all these tea parties for Lady Katherine, she has a lot of blog friends

Elizabeth (blue clear sky) said...

Great job on your workout room! You can reward yourself for your hard work with a chapter or two in that cozy corner.

Alisa Lucas-Brown said...

Oh Melissa,
What a great job you've done adding panache to your bonus room. My bonus room is just to scary to feature! LOL! That is the boy's domain and I'm much to afraid of all the video games, consoles, wires and game accessories to venture to far into their world. Maybe one day I will gain back that room of my house :-)

The Blonde Duck said...

I'm so jealous! I want a work out room!

Joy said...

Wow, I love your bonus room! Your birds are so pretty too!

texasdaisey said...

Wow, that room is gorgeous. I just love shopping at Target too. I always enjoy your latest decorating projects. Thank you also for the encouragement on my Texas Tumbleweeds blog. I was really second guessing myself on that one especially with the other ones doing so well. You and several other beautiful amazing bloggers were used by God today to communicate to me and I thank you. Blessings,
Debbie

texasdaisey said...

I just found your second comment & You are following one of my other blogs I believe. I think my gloryfeathers so no apology needed. I was just simply thinking that maybe I had misheard God on the 4th blog. I love blogging and hated to give it up but wasn't willing to step out of his will by even 1 blog. You are awesome and your blog rocks.
Debbie

The Kusibab Family said...

Holy Toledo ! Is that the same room! Please come to my house it needs a make over. On a budget!

Tracy said...

Hi Melissa, Great job on the room makeover, I love the color and all the accessories you added are perfect. The circle table is really cute!

Nicole ~ said...

Melissa the transformation looks so warm & cozy. You have added so many nice touches to the room. By the way, I wanted that same bookshelf from Target!!!

I love the picture of Chestnut, and boy does he have a wonderful lounge!! I understand the toy thing, if people saw how many toys Bentley had they would think I had lost my mind. Or, maybe that I had a half a dozen kids! Lloyd is such a cute little bird.

You had a wonderful tea party for Lady Katherine, and what a very pretty teapot.

Have a wonderful week, Nicole

SILVIA said...

Kelly B said...

I love your room!! I am glad to find someone else who shops target as much as me!! :) I love how you used the circles. I know my kids would love that!! I am only 33, but I think they see me as about 74 now. :) I love that shade of blue!!

Susan (Between Naps on the Porch) said...

Hi Melissa...what a wonderful haven you've created. Chestnut is a lucky kitty, too! What a fab deal on your round table! Great Met Monday post! I love your bonus room...it really is a BONUS room with the way you have decorated and the way you use it for many purposes.

Jessica said...

I would just die for a bonus room and you did a beautiful job of making it the ultimate all purpose room...and still have it looking great! That's hard to do.
Also, thanks so much for stopping by my blog and posting the lovely comment.

niartist said...

Kristens Creations said...

Hi Melissa, thanks for checking out some of my spring. I just can't get enough red! Cat's still here btw,lol.... Kristen

Connie said...

Hi Melissa,
I love your new remodeled room. I bet you use it often. Treadmills are necessary items these days, and you won't have to look at the basement walls. A nice comfy chair ... what more could we want ?
Thanks for stopping over.
Been super busy with my taxes. They are
taxing everything but the kitchen sink!
Think I'll call it a day.... it's snowing, too.
Enjoy your day tomorrrow.

Crystal said...

Now this is a room that just might inspire me to exercise more. Great job! The tea and donut for Lady Katherine are just yummy.

Chrissy said...

Wow look at you go girl... looks really nice indeed...isn't great when you do that, transform a space, it just makes you feel sooooo good!! All the best, Chrissy

Carolina Mama said...

You did a great job. and I like when it matches and is a great find too. Go Tar Heels. Did you see the big win!?!

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

Beautiful make over. I am loving the color blue. I need to add more blue to our home. I didn't know you had a bird. Does he talk? I am a bird lover. Have a great day!

The Stylish House said...

Melissa,
Stopped by to say hi again! This is a great paint color, and I am sure it will motivate you to get into swimsuit shape! I started Pilates two months ago, and it has helped the stiff neck that develops from hours spent on the computer! Have a nice evening….~Cathy~

Smilingsal said...

Oh I love the blue and I love to read. Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting on my front door.

Target is just the best place to find neat stuff. Your room looks fabulous and is functional at the same time--great job. I love the paint color too.

Shana said...

Beautiful !!!

Rue said...

Hi Melissa :)

Of course they don't count on birthdays... and anniversaries and picnics and and ..... well, you get the idea ;)

Your bonus room looks great! Tell your hubby to hurry up on that deck! People here in Ohio need to see something outdoorsy ;)

Liz said...

Good job on the bonus room! I love the blue and black. We have 2 kitties and an 18 year old parrot. I wish we had a bonus room! :)

Very cozy. Love your choice of colors and furniture. Beautiful teapot

Paula said...

Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog, as always! I am (almost) good as new! Your before and after of your bonus room is really nice! The workout equipment and pet paraphernalia are necessary evils, but you worked around them nicely!

Loida of the 2L3B's said...

Dearest Melissa,
As always, the very best in decorating! You always made me feel like going back to my home sweet home and do what you did best. The thing is I can't, we have to bring our kids to another place first. On my retirement years perhaps. Ohh you're such a good friend for arranging a birthday tea party for Lady Katherine. Thanks my friend for beautiful home inspirations. Have a nice daya ahead..

Queenie Jeannie said...

Gorgeous - as always!!! I don't know how you do it!

Rue said...

Hi Melissa :)

Does the word 'tornado' frighten everyone in his hometown? Then it's the right place ;)

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Your bonus room is such a cozy place Melissa. I can see Mr. Chestnut is a very well loved cat! :-)
My daughter-in-law loves Target! She has decorated their home so beautifully with many things she's bought there. Unfortunately the Target nearest to me has too many customers and everything is picked over too much.
How nice to have a tea for Lady Katherine's BD!

Mary / Mariah said...

Thanks , hope you have a Happy Easter .
Your room looks great , really like the blue and chocolate colors , they go good together .
Sorry I haven't been on Blog land much . I'll be having eye surgery on May 14th . I could use your prayers .

Lady Katherine said...

Love your room! Hope you doing OK, is Hubby away? I love the Tea Setting and I love mint tea! The donut looks so yummy! I cannot resist them! lol Your teapot is lovely! Now I have never had anyone call me Gorgeous! lol Two in blogland have told me I am pretty! Wow! I think I always been so plain! Thank you! Means a lot to me and for you giving me such a lovely Tea! I take my donut now! lol Oh, I am better! Sorry I got here so late. My 21 month old granddaughter almost fell in the creek and I caught her just in time. I pulled loose my whole right side mesh and Doc said hospital, and I said Tea Party! lol I been in bed asleep around the clock for days. I loved visiting and reading the comments. I never had so many Birthday Wishes! Thank you so much for making my day special! I am having such a great time visting all the Tea Parties! Just love it!

Ashley ~ said...

Hey there ~ Your bonus room looks nice and comfy, and yes, Chestnut may be just a tad spoiled, but hey, he's so darn cute, how could you resist spoiling him*! (SMILE)
Have a great afternoon*!

Bo said...

Hi Melissa...Thank you for always having the nicest comments on my blog...your little wild bunny must be so CUTE!...I was asked if I took the picture on my header...oh, how I wish I was that good! No, it's just something going around on the net that I snagged...Have a blessed Easter sweet friend, ;-) Bo

JyLnC said...

The soft blue paint with the black furniture is so contemporary and wicked cool.

I also love the black word and letter accents and then there is the black and white sqiggly twigs hiding the outlet. Love them!

Plus your cat has a great space all his own. Including that matching blue blanket...he lives a good life.

I didn't remember that you had Lloyd. How do he and Chestnut get along?

Tomarie said...

Melissa,

You are so sweet to drop by! I hope to get back to blogging sooner than later! This is a busy time at school and I'm totally steamed out when I get home! :-)

I love your transformation!! One of my favorites is the bucket to hide the cords! That's ingenious! It's amazing what a total overhaul you can do without breaking the bank...I love all those stores!
As one pet lover to another...your babies' homes are wonderful! To me it's just no fun at all to have pets and not spoil 'em! That's the whole idea! I love that your kitty's play area looks like a little apartment!lol :-)
Thank you again for stopping by!!!! L~

Rue said...

I feel like we're play charades LOL

Would that be like giving a "tip" in the "city"?

Oh yeah, I love my Ohio boy ;)

Rue said...

It IS a small world! LOL I just love it here and we plan on staying when Rich retires too. Maybe one day we'll meet. Won't that be fun?

Have a great night Melissa and kiss that great Ohio boy you're married to ;)

hugs,
rue

Karen said...

Hi Melissa, I'm glad you like the tablescape! It was alot of fun putting it together.

I loved your easter tablescape too! Have a wonderful easter. Kristen

Mama said...

Hey Melissa, your bonus room looks beautiful the colour is just gorgeous and I love all accesories you added and the reading nook. Your Cockatiel is cute, we had one ages ago in England, everytime I was on the phone he would start yelling, as soon as I put the phone down he stopped lol. your tea set is beautiful too, happy birthday to Lady Katherine, I have missed so much here in Blog-land, but I had a whole list of things I had to do, just wanted to wish you and yours a wonderful Easter and to tell you to go get that candle from Pier 1 it's called Canary Island Banana and smells sooooo good lol. hugs, Kathy.

Jules said...

You did an amazing job on the room! I love the table you got at Marshall's and the throw pillow from Target. They go so well together! I also like the idea of using the bucket to hide a cord. The color of the room is so pretty also. Another great room in a beautiful and loving home!

Have a great Friday and a Happy Easter! :)

What a gorgeous transformation to this room. I sooo love the colors you used. Hmmm, I may have to find that "Birdbath" paint for my guest bedroom, it is just such a relaxing color. Love all the special touches you've added. BTW, when I die, can I come back as your cat?!?!

Hugs,

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

I've been on a blogging break a medical hiatus...so now, I've been enjoying the stroll through posts I've missed.
I'm sharing your design photos with my daughter in-law. She&my son have just moved into a townhouse. I know she'll love this look.

Come for a visit I've got some fun Easter confections.

Sweet Easter wishes,

Melissa,
Thank you for coming by! I would love to give you the "Fan Award" if you don't already have it...or to add myself to your collection of fans if you do!! :-)
My uncle's company was called DelTex. He also owned a chain of discount stores...kind of like a Walmart or Kmart in West TX. But alas, he sold all his businesses when he retired...then promptly lost most all of his money gambling in Las Vegas before he died! Lol
Thanks again for dropping by! :-) L~
