Good Question Revisited: Solution for the "Nook"

Good Question Revisited: Solution for the "Nook"

Splatgirl posted the end result of a search that started with a good question about "What Should I Do With This Nook" on AT. One of the themes that came up on the comment thread (among the bamboo, lizards and a sexy Italian twin!) was the idea of using a bike, motorcycle or a "rusty tricycle" in the space.

We are thinking that "Alana in Canada" is some kind of interiors soothsayer, because that is exactly what Splatgirl found...

Here is the story from her blog:

"And lo and behold, there at the curb at the end of the driveway sits a genuine rusty old trike. No kidding.

I just about flipped, and breathlessly had to explain to Boy why that was just the most amazingly perfect coincidence EVER and "holy crap I completely can't even believe it". Despite my excitement, Boy, never quite knowing what he's going to be in for with me on any given day, was SO not feeling me insisting that he turn around and go back. I believe there were a few eye rolls and loud exhales involved, but turn around he did at the same time handing me his wallet (and wondering how much this little coincidence was going to cost him, no doubt). I jumped out and looked at the sign that was attached and flapping in the wind:


Meant to be, obviously! The tricycle looks wonderful in the nook, and now Splatgirl is wondering what color to paint the walls of this cubby area...she's thinking a dark charcoal gray, but is up for suggestions...
