I really enjoy re-imagining room designs and layouts. As a kid, I remember drawing out room arrangements for my bedroom, and moving furniture around all the time. I still love to plan out spaces in my mind, but I have recently admitted to myself that I am actually horrible at executing and following through to the end of a room design.
This is precisely why I am redecorating two rooms for this year’s One Room Challenge hosted by Calling it Home. That’s right – two rooms! I recognize that this is a crazy idea, but I need a major shove to finish these spaces. In my master bedroom I will be starting fresh and overhauling the entire space. My eat-in kitchen, however, has already been started, and really is about 80% of the way complete. This might sound like major progress, and it is, but I’ve left it in this 80% finished state for over two years. I really would love to just finish this space and officially call it done.
I actually have two stages of photos from my kitchen. This week, I will show you my kitchen before we remodeled it two years ago. You’ll just need to wait until next week to see the 80% kitchen as it stands right now. From there, I’ll be focusing most of my work on the eat-in area of the kitchen and then adding a few finishing touches to the kitchen space.
Welcome to our kitchen circa 2013.
Yes, that is a ladder that leads up to a little loft. More on that business next week.
My plans for this space will make a lot more sense next week, but basically I’m going to finish the wainscoting, refinish a vintage dining table, and add some much needed decor to the walls in the space.
I hope you’ll follow along with me for the next 6 weeks as I finally finish my eat-in kitchen and master bedroom!
Now, head on over to Calling it Home and check out all the other participants that will be decorating their spaces, too!
