I gave a sneak peak of our craft/office here and showed you our updated closet doors here, but I haven’t really shown the room as a whole. Plus Trav finally got around to hanging some lighting and blinds we purchased so I feel like the room is a bit more complete. Here is a reminder of the room when we moved in:
And after we put all our junk in (scary!):
Here it is today. I wish I remembered to take a pic of the fan that used to be in there. It was FUGLY! You can sort of see the blades of it in the before pic, but it doesn’t do it justice. Basically picture something out of the 80’s that’s bulky and adorned in gold. We purchased the light you see in this pic from IKEA for 25 bucks including a light kit. Don’t ask how it was installed because I have no idea. It involved re-wiring and adding outlets in the ceiling?!?!? Good thing Hubby is handy.
Here is the view from the other side.
And a wider shot:
I also switched up the stuff I had on the desk, and staged it a bit. Yep I’m reading HGTV’s new mag! Love it.
A close-up of the corner. The pic is from our Anniversary and the necklace was my Grandma’s. I love having it out and displayed instead of hidden in a drawer somewhere. The sign is what I would be doing EVERYDAY if I lived near a beach. ❤
On the wall opposite of the closet we put a mirror. It’s perfect for a quick outfit check on my way out the door!
Eventually we want a day bed under the window, but for now we have bigger plans to tackle (bathroom renovation is a GO). I’d love to try to DIY something to save mula, stay tuned!
