Happy New Year my friends! I can’t believe that it is January 2020. I took a couple of weeks off to enjoy the holidays with the family and now I’m energized and ready to rock this year. I’m so excited to be participating in the $100 Room Challenge along with some other very talented bloggers
A great big thank you to Erin at Lemons, Lavender and Laundry for hosting!
That means I’ll be redesigning a room in my home in 1 month for $100 or less. We will be sharing our progress every Wednesday throughout the month of January. I’m thrilled. I’m scared. You know all the feels! So What room am I doing?
My art studio/office! I’ll be honest up until about two days ago this was not the room I had planned to do. I was dead set to redesign my laundry room.
In fact, I came into my office sat down and tried to do some major planning and I was so distracted by this hot mess that I couldn’t get anything done.
To the left of my desk is the best closet for an art studio that I’ve ever had, but this is what I saw every time I opened the door!
I mean, who could possibly be creative in here? In my defense, I was left alone, unsupervised and was running with scissors! Seriously, we moved into our new (downsized) home this past October and with the holidays so close I basically just unpacked and threw stuff in here. Thinking that the main areas of the house were more important.
In all honesty I’ve been planning each room of this house for a long time!
Here’s my inpso: I saw this dining room from Less Than Perfect Life of Bliss and fell in love. She and I even have the same rug!However, the mural was out of my price range.
And this window seat…. love, love, love.
So, Here’s my plan: Clean everything, declutter, donate and get rid of any and all stuff I don’t use. Organize the closet. Sew and hang a relaxed roman shade above the window seat. Paint the window seat white. Refurbish my bulletin board, tray and stool. Sew a cushion for my window seat. Paint a wall mural above my work station. If time and the budget allows, add desk lamp and a chandelier.
That’s not a lot, right? This girls got a lot of work to do!
Now please join me in visiting some really talented bloggers and see what they are up to!
