weeks months back I started talking about doing a couple mini makeovers at our house. First up was the dining room. That makeover showed me the power of paint color. With a simple change in paint and few new accessories the entire space was transformed. If you missed the dining room reveal you should check it out.
Today I am back with a transformation that is equally as drastic. When my husband and I built our home we placed a small open room off our kitchen. Initially we thought it would be nice for the girls to have an extra space to play in and would be convenient for me to have them so close. The room served its purpose for 3 years but eventually it just wasn't being used. Earlier this spring I came up with the crazy idea to turn it into a home school room and the some how my amazing husband made it happen.
Let's take a look.
Custom made built in desk.
With plenty of storage space.
My Ikea Raskog is finally in use as our art cart.
I found the perfect pails to hold our supplies in the Target dollar bins.
The new walls are the perfect color of graige, Behr wheatbread, just like the dining room.
I can't believe I thought about changing these curtains. As soon as I saw them with the new paint color I knew they had to stay.
This wall isn't done yet. Eventually the TV that was once on an entertainment stand will be mounted on the wall, but I think Russ is feeling pretty done with this room for at least another week or so.
I changed up my art display area making it the focus on a smaller wall.
This was not the desk I had initially drawn up, it is much bigger and better. It gives the girls lots of space to really spread out. I also added a cork board for each of them since staring at a blank wall isn't much fun.
Custom made chalkboard and the perfect comfy chair for a little reading nook.
Words can't even tell you I am how happy I am to have this special space in our home. A room that was no longer working for our family just became a room we will spend HOURS in over the next several months.
A space that is all our own where we can learn, grow and play without having to worry about making a mess on the table or shuffling things around so we can eat lunch.
What a blessing.
Russ you knocked it out of the park, again!
Thanks for taking my silly sketches and crazy ideas and helping me turn them into something wonderful.
I love you!
