Quite awhile ago I shared a picture of my then 20 year old son’s bedroom before I went in to clean it out. He has sooo much packed into the smallest room in the house and that got me to thinking recently. And that thinking lead to rearranging a third of the house, all while we were working on the wood flooring. But once I got the idea I wanted it done yesterday.
So here is what we did. We took the living room furniture and moved it to the office.
Then we moved my son’s furniture and belongings to the living room. While most living rooms would not work as a bedroom ours is separated from the rest of the house by pocket doors leaving only an opening from the bar area into the living room open. More on that later.
The final move involved putting all my sewing, painting, and craft supplies into my son’s old room. Please believe when I write that it no longer looks this bad.
This gives my son more room and privacy, moves him to the other side of the house giving us more privacy, and I ended up with a room all to myself. Everybody is happy!
So I have been working on a few elements of the room that I wanted to share. I have been very inspired by Susan’s new office over at BNOTP. But I have a slightly smaller budget. Actually it is so small that there is no budget and I always find that challenge exciting.
This is definately a room that calls out to be functional. But I want it to look as uncluttered as possible so first up was a way to hide unfinished projects. Luckily for me my daughter no longer had a use for three bifold door panels that I had replaced when we moved in so I put those babies to work. Right after I painted them
There is no need to adjust your monitor they really were that bright. And since this is a no budget job I used all of these partial cans of spray paint to cover up all that green.
I did end up buying a new trigger for spray paint cans and two cans of vanilla colored spray paint but that is more like a weekly expense for me so I am not counting. If you don’t have a trigger for spray paint you need to drop everything and rush out to get one right now. The trigger makes it soooo much easier.
Up next is repurposing a $30 table to give me some work space for all my crafts and supplies.
