For a little history on the space, we moved into this house exactly 1 year ago. The "office" also has to act as a guest room, so a sleeper sofa is a must. I do a lot of crafting. Did I mention I do a lot of crafting? Anyone who makes things knows how messy it can be. In the past, I had to pull everything out in 3 rooms to craft, because that was where it was stored. It is now so much easier to create and contain the mess! SO, without further adieu...
Welcome to my very own space!
And the painful before shot:
I have storage EVERYWHERE! I hung a thin curtain rod on the wall to put some of my ribbon stash:
I picked up this little hanging basket for $2 at an antique store for ribbon scraps and trims and I squeezed my ironing board in by my desk. I traded the big black office chair on wheels, for this little chair that I made over. Much better.
The "Mullet" window-treatment and lamp were 2 of the most fun things to make over. If you don't see the resemblance, then click here for the details and the proof.
I store 12x12 scrapbook paper in these cubes on the ends of the couch. I got them at Target 7 years ago, and they have held up really well.
This cabinet was free. You know the saying about one man's trash, well this is definitely my treasure. It stores my fabric perfectly.
The pegboard was truly one of the best things I have done in here. I use.it.constantly.
The entertainment center re-do was the most labor intensive thing, but worth every minute.
Storage, storage, and more storage.
I managed to keep this whole makeover under $100 by using what I already had and painting, painting, painting! Excuse the ugly safe under the desk. That is a non-negotiable with Lon, but I plan on putting fabric there on a tension rod. I mean, the man let me decorate a whole room in pink, green, and turquoise. I figure leaving his safe in place is the least I can do!
I hope you enjoyed the tour! I sure enjoyed creating this space and will use it to the fullest.
