This is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE area of the room!!! I love everything about it! I love the rustic-ness of the table paired with the feminine elements. The camera art block is something that was for sale in my Etsy shop, but I decided to keep it for myself. My dollar store cupcake stand is the perfect size to hold a vintage tin that belonged to my grandmother. The printable in the white frame came from Landee See, Landee Do.
I DIY-ed the different frames with spray paint and scrapbook paper. The oval magnetic board started out as a metal tray from the dollar store, and the book-page B is another DIY project.
The hutch in the corner of the room added much needed storage.
I used different containers to organize all my little do-das that I use for crafting behind the glass doors. And I couldn't help but create a couple of little vignettes on the surface of the hutch.
I picked up the owl at Home Goods. The other pieces I just had sitting around.
I'm sure you saw the window beside the hutch. Did you see the valance I made?
The best thing is that the valance and its twin on the other window cost me nothing! I used supplies I already had. Beside the window is my brand new corner desk.
The base of the desk is the file cabinets that I already had, but I revived them with paint and new handles. My dad and I just created another top for them. (You know the deal. There will be a tutorial soon!)
I bought the rug from Urban Outfitters. The seating for the desk is the bench I "collected" from my neighbor's trash. I love the decor on the wall above the desk.
I made over the mirror and created the wreath from a dollar store wreath form. The other decor on the desktop is mainly stuff I DIY-ed too.
I created the to-do board and the curio shelf, as well as the wire bulletin board. The lamp was a brass thrift store find that I spray painted and bought a new shade for.
There's another window to the left of the desk, and beside that is my laminate bookcase that I revived. The swallow art and chevron frame are from previous tutorials. The little deer blocks are for sale in my Etsy shop. The other wall is pretty much taken up by a closet with sliding doors, so I didn't take any pictures of it.
And our tour ends where it started. (I had to take a shot with my lamp turned on.) This makeover was A LOT of work, but I really did enjoy it. I love the fact that I pretty much DIY-ed the whole room. I didn't realize how many of my projects are in the room until I started writing this post! I love that it has given me so much material to blog about. (As I'm sure you figured out by now, there will be lots of tutorials to come!) I hope you like the room half as much as I love it. It makes me happy to walk in the room and look around. It's sooooo different from how it started. I have to admit that a couple of times I've just lain on the floor and absorbed the uncluttered, peacefulness of the room. And I've really enjoyed doing some projects on my new desk. So if you have a room that needs a makeover, just go for it! It will be a lot of work and there will be some bumps in the road, but you will feel so much better when it's made over, especially if you DIY! :)
