As I've mentioned before, we purchased our new home back in April. With things still on a tight budget, decorating costs are slim pickins! Add to it, our house is huge - we got it for a steal in this blighted Vegas market, much more than we need ~ so decorating has been a bit of a chore.
Upstairs are all our bedrooms and a loft area. We've made this into my home office/kids computer area. It was in need of a massive redo and I like it so far.... Here's a pic of the loft before:
HO-HUM - blah! Boring!! I've always been inspired by this photo from BHG. I loved how they pulled in items from the home to use with the home office.
So I moved things around a bit, pulled an unused piece of furniture from one of the younglings rooms and this is what I've got.
Much better I think. Will do for now. A few details here and there...
This is the wall above my computer. I copied the Create sign from a Ballard's magazine pic. I found those frame for $2 at a garage sale in a shiny brass - spray painted them flat black.
My Dollar Tree frame that I hot-glued burlap and a pretty fork on.
My own version of "Family Rules." I have wanted to copy Tatertots and Jello's Family Rules list for-evah and I finally did. My youngling helped come up with some of the rules which I LOOOVE!
I even got all the computer cords tucked neatly away!!!
So a bit of progress was made - now for the other side of the loft!!! What to do?!? Idears anyone?
I'm posting up to these blog parties:
