So grab a cupcake & let’s get this party started!
Meet my Spring Cleaning Challenge:
My Orville Redenbacher Office (via popcorn ceiling)
*Which (obviously) happens to be an A-framed room
*Only has 1 half workable wall
This is how it has looked for the past 2 years. We’ll blame it on the twins.
I personally gave myself 2 challenges besides getting it organized & becoming practical.
1. Make “room for more.” Because this room is not going anywhere.
2. Be thrifty in everything. Whether it’s make, buy on sale, or repurpose.
>>>this really was the funnest part outside of finishing the room.<<<
Here’s my inspirations for re-designing the room:
1. BHG 2,4,6,&10. Pottery Barn 3. Country Living 5. Tiffany & Co. 7. My Mom’s hand-me-down 8. Liberty of London 9. The MacBeth Collection 11. BHG 13. Country Living
for the actual Inspirational Board itself, you can see how I made it by clicking here
Now for the results:
Here’s the 1/2 desk & side wall before:.
Chief & I made a peg board! Thanks from the inspiration of Country Living Mag & The Vintage Glitter House Blog for their much needed advice!
I also had the cubby shelf for a decade ago. Chief mounted it & then I realized it was the perfect fit for my pint size mason blueball jars I won off of Ebay.
*Again, trying to leave room for more – here*
Here’s the desk before:
I did use my b-day money to buy the only few things I paid full price for. As most can see, I fell in love with this print from the Liberty of London Collection @ Target. When I saw this color combo – I knew it would tie everything together.
Now the window before:
Excuse me, while I jump up & down over this window!
You see, I MADE the roman burlap shade!!! It’a a NO SEW tutorial.
My friend Christina always leads me to worlds I’ve never known…like the Little Green Notebook’s tutorial on making this roman shade. All by using a $3.99 shade from Target. I kid you not!
Now the other side of the room before:
Now after ~My sewing area & inspirational board.
The cedar library table & the large blueball Mason jars have been in Chief’s family for years. He can remember eating Moon Pies from this table when he was Graham’s age.
I personally LOVE the blue Mason jars up against the orange inspiration board. delicious!
Now across the sewing area, but on the same side before:
A wrapping paper station with all the trimmings AND *room to grow!*
Eventually, we will take a road trip to Ikea (2 hrs. away) for some sort of shelving unit to go width wise across & snug up to the slope of the ceiling. In case you’re wondering about the fan, since this is an attic room in almost a 100 y.o. house – the fan is vital for the creativity outflow. I left it in the pics, because it is as it is! Needless to say, I love how this room turned out. I love the modern, vintage, rustic, country, & a little bit of glam in it. Really – I think this room describes me to a “T.” I am thrilled with the results.
Alright, that’s my Spring Cleaning Project!!!
