Hi, friends. If you follow me on the new facebook group page, Hymns and Verses – Behind the Scenes, you know I teased that today I’d be sharing something new and a bit scary. For the first time, I’m participating in the One Room Challenge hosted by Linda of Calling it Home.
The One Room Challenge is a six week challenge where bloggers transform a space in their home from start to finish. There are design participants who are selected to participate and a chance for any blogger to participate as a guest. For this challenge, I’m transforming what was my middle son’s bedroom into a home office space for me! Yay!!! I’ve been working from our family room, but I’m so excited to finally have a space just for me to work. Here are some honest before shots of how the room looks today.
Caleb painted this cool feature wall, but it’s going to be covered up with this pretty wallpaper!
I have lots of plans for this room and created a style board to share the overall concept for the space. Basically I want a desk and a counter height work area with storage to sew, make signs, craft, etc. We are going to create great storage in the closet to help me get at least some of my home decor accessories corralled into one location! Right now, I have things here, there, and everywhere!
If there is time, I would like to change out the existing door for a sliding barn door. Of course the ceiling light, while cool, is not my style! So, I think we are going to DIY a drum shade hanging fixture. For the first week, we are going to tackle the closet, so I’ll be sharing that – hopefully completed – next Thursday! I know keeping to this time line will be a challenge – I’m so excited to have my own work space! Wish me (us) luck! If you want to see more guest participants in the One Room Challenge – click HERE.
