This is a poor excuse for WOYWW- however- I can't very well show the room when we haven't showed you how I got there.
So in December I decided I needed to re-vamp my craft room. As I rent I know my options are somewhat limited to what I can do. I can't paint it the color I prefer for instances but I can bring in items that add a lot of character that later when I buy a house will still blend in a room and be mobile. That was a big thing for me. While I would love built in's that's just not an option right now. I don't want to put anything in that I can not remove and take with me!
Here's a tutorial and some of the do's and DO NOT's. There's going to be alot of these over the next week. I learned alot! There were ups and DOWNS. At one point I wanted to scream and sell it all! Not even kidding, it was frustrating. But a few steps back.. a few breaths... a few days and a few bottles of wine later... I'm happy to say the room is complete!
These shelves I picked because they were cheap.. always a plus.. read below. They were also at the right height for me to use for a bar island style table. They were just what I needed also with all of the storage capabilities. Now these pictures are all taken in my living room . as are much of my renovation because New Years Eve.. my furnace decided to break and because of closings and life events, I worked in my living room most of the time with some space heaters going! Because nothing and I mean nothing was going to stop me from getting the room done before mid month! I was a woman on a mission.. and when the boyfriend gave me the eye... as though he was getting to question me gluing, using gesso, paint etc. in the living room I gave him a look of death.. and all was well again.
|BOOOOO I love this product- hate my stupidness!|
I ended up loving how the came together. Pops of color on the bold black. Now be sure to stay tuned this week as all week I am going to be posting the renovation.
