Home Office/Craft Room Reveal
It’s finally here! It’s time to reveal my Renu Challenge Home Office/Craft Room Makeover! Just in case you missed it let me refresh your memories with some before pics.
There was a lot of stuff going on in this room and it was becoming a dumping ground. I started to avoid it like the plague. Are you ready for the after? Here it comes…….
I painted the room with Benjamin Moore Gray Owl and I did the stripes on the wall with Gray Owl and White Wisp. I also unified all the existing furniture by painting it white and changing out the hardware.
Two new bookcases in white helped me organize the back wall and add more storage. I also wanted a place to display the vintage treasures I love!
A smaller craft table fits better into the corner space than the big round table that I had there before. It’s the perfect place to keep my sewing machine and since it’s near the window I can also use it as my backdrop for blog photos. And check out that door! It’s a steel reinforced door that we found at the salvage yard. At first, I wasn’t sure that it was what I was looking for. But once I got it in the room it was perfect. The metal is full of dings and rusty goodness. But there is also a major bonus. Since it’s metal it can also serve as a bulletin board.
I also painted stripes on the existing rug. Really the only new things that I purchased were the bookshelves and the sewing table. Everything else I already had. Oh, and there is something new in the room that I know is kind of silly, but I love it!
My new Renu dimmer switch from Leviton. I chose the white on white light switch and outlets throughout the room so that they would just blend in and look crisp and clean. But this dimmer is sweet! You just push that little button and your lights brighten and fade as you like. It’s kind of nice in the evening to not have the light on full blast overhead. And I’m sure you’re thinking ok get on with the really pretty stuff. But I’m here to tell you, don’t underestimate the effect that new switches and outlets have in your space. The old ones were mismatched white and brown and they were ugggggly! These are sleek and clean!
This makeover gave me the chance to really simplify this space. I got rid of the curtains because they just took up space. And I brought in some of my favorite collectibles like these ironstone platters. I did a lot of purging! I had way too much stuff in this space. No wonder why I always felt like this room was closing in on me! The lighter colors really helped open up the space. My Office/Craft Room feels more like a reflection of my style now. I’ll give you more details about the striped wall and painted furniture next week but here are a few more pics of some of the things I love in this space. Hope you like it too!
