Wide Open Spaces

"Who doesn't know what I'm talking about..."

Here is what is now our TV/den. This picture was taken by the realtor for the previous owners.  When we painted in here I thought I would like the area above the windows to be open, so we removed the shelf and the curtain. most everything else, as far as decorating goes in this house, I was wrong.
