Calling it Home for creating this fun, fabulous yet crazy task that we are to complete in just 6 short weeks.
I have been an avid follower of the ORC and have been astounded by some of the transformations. I cannot wait to see the other spaces!
Even though we are currently in transition and are in a rental home, I decided to throw myself into trying to make my space more functional and exciting. But because it is a rental I'm not willing to put a lot of money into the house.
Ok so here goes....... my "office" is currently a staging area (who am I kidding) dump for what furniture I am currently working on or in the process of getting ready to sell. For those of you that don't know I sell vintage and antique furniture, lighting, etc..... I have a desk, but will source other items mainly through my daily search for cool furniture that keeps my business going. I also love a good DIY, so this will done ON THE CHEAP.
The room I chose is to say the least, challenging. It is 12 x 12 and only has 2 (yes I said 2) walls. And both of those walls have doorways. Oh yeah, the room is elevated by 6" from the rest of the house. So essentially I am "on display".
I have a bookcase/secretary ( henceforth called the Monster) that CANNOT be moved to another location. It is the only space in the house that it will currently fit. So that knocks out 1 wall. Now there is only ONE usable wall in the room.
My goal over the next 6 weeks is to:
- clear out room
- Paint ( with permission from landlord)
- hide hideous floor tile with interesting carpet or alternative flooring
- replace chandelier
- make bookcase functional for work
- source art/ mirrors etc....
- find console/ lamps/ style the single wall
Here is the room in its current state, please don't judge too harshly...
