It’s officially here! After the last few weeks of craziness and late nights, the Fall 2016 One Room Challenge is officially over.
This season we decided to take on our office, which is actually our 4th bedroom. It’s amazing because we have tons of closet space for storage, but we had been treating it like was square footage that didn’t exist (you know, that room where the door is basically permanently closed so no one can see the cray) and stuff was ev.er.y.wh.ere. Here’s a few of the before’s to start off the party.
When we moved in the space was dark and dated with orange-brown-red-tan-who knows what it was originally carpet, that we luckily replaced shortly after getting the keys.
We then slapped some paint on the walls, put a mix of old furniture pieces in the space, and a whole heck of a lot of paperwork, project remnants, sewing projects gone wrong, gifts I forgot I had purchased for people, and you get the picture 🙂
After clearing everything out, we came up with a design plan that we thought would be the most user friendly for us which included a larger work surface and more room for storage. We threw in some color for a little bit of a challenge (I’m a total neutral nut) and used this plan as our inspiration throughout the weeks!
And drum roll please…. here’s how we brought the plan to life!
We’re so happy with how everything turned out and how bright and fun the space is now! I can’t wait to start posting more projects now that I can actually find my supplies, and use this forgotten space in our house more often 🙂
Thanks so much to Linda at Calling it Home for hosting another amazing event! We look forward to keeping our participation streak strong and will see you next spring to take on another space! I’m already itching to tackle more… but maybe after a little nap 🙂
