Home office Reveal!

Sunday, March 15, 2015

I have been a bit lax blogging lately because we have had company the last couple of weekends-my Bestie Kim came to visit and my parents.  I am so proud of Kim!  She signed up for Team in Training Marathon to raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  You can check out her progress on her new blog here.   

I finally photographed my desk area in my new home office aka craft room aka guest room. It still needs paint and some artwork hung over the bed, but it's as good as it is going to get for now. 

As I mentioned in previous posts, I had most of the items already in our house somewhere or in this room including the desk, bed, artwork, chair and lamp. If you follow me on Instagram then you know this black chair won't be here for long.

I have had this adorable Lowe's chandy sitting in the corner of the room for months and finally got around to giving it a coat of gold spray paint.  Nick was kind enough to hang it for me a couple of weeks ago. 

As I mentioned earlier, the black chair isn't staying for long.  I found these guys at Goodwill and couldn't resist brining one home. I am pretty sure I am going to paint my new  chair raspberry or white.  But first I need to settle on a fabric. Have you seen any great fabrics lately?

I would have loved to use the pink velvet leopard fabric below, but it was sold out.

  This fabric could be a fun option too, but I am not sold yet.

 Do you have a space in your house that serves multi-purposes?  I feel like we all do now days.

Home Office and Craft Room and Guest Room

Thank you for sticking with me after my whining complaining about bathroom lighting.  Since we can't find lights that we love within our budget we are going to get the room painted, hang new mirrors, hardware and cornice.  But first we (Nick) have to fill the nail holes and caulk the molding.

I took advantage of the warmer weather this weekend and worked on some spray painting projects.  My creative design juices have been on over drive as of late and I am bouncing around ideas all over the place!  I got cracking of sprucing up my home office aka craft room aka second guest bedroom.  I didn't want to spend a ton as I don't work from home typically and I don't know how long this will get to stay my girly room since our two boys currently share a bedroom.  I threw together a bunch of stuff that we already head and am making over some finds in order to give the room a cohesive look. Hopefully I will have a real sneak peek for you in the next couple of days. 

Do you have a multi purpose room in your house?  Do you have a girly space of your own or a man cave?

 Lisa @ Shine Your Light has a great cornice board tutorial.  I am hoping to use her advise for hanging the new cornice in our bathroom.

Come by and check it out!

Ready for company

Our guest room is far from perfect, but it is certainly more comfortable now.

This is how the room looked when I left for work this morning, but then Handsome Hubby made additional tweaks to make it even better.

Forgive the bad lighting as it was dark when I got home.  

Our improvement list for this room includes:

Different curtains
Matching lamps (I have some frm GCF)
Hooking up Dish and a TV

Aaaaaahhhh! Company is coming

I am so excited to see my best friend!  She is coming to visit on last minute notice, which is totally fine.  Then I remembered the current state of my guest bedroom...uh oh.  

Do nearby rooms turn in to a disaster zone when you are working on a nearby room?

Looks like I have some work to do tonight.
