Next week is the big reveal! There is no denying my office/studio has been transformed! My husband, Richard literally walked into the room last night and said, “Wow!”
If you’ve been following along, this is week 5 of the One Room Challenge. If you are just checking in, our host Linda from Calling it Home inspires hundreds of bloggers and designers to makeover a room in 6 weeks! Here are my previous posts about this makeover.
This week I can finally share a mini-reveal of the wallpaper side of the room styled for Target and Devine Color. The modern global look featured in Target’s spring collection is a perfect fit for this room. Seriously, I have had to force myself to leave room in my basket for the groceries I actually went to Target for recently. The struggle is real my friends.
I’m pretty certain just about everything in this look is staying, except sadly this amazing mid-century chair.
I mean, it’s gorgeous! And the price point for the chair is amazingly affordable too.
But I wanted to have the option to host one more overnight guest if necessary in my studio so a futon style sofa will take the place of the chair next week! Just wait until next week, y’all! It’s good, not at all like the futons of our college days.
I share more photos and the super easy tutorial I created for how to hang this removable wallpaper from Devine Color at Target. You’ll be amazed how doable this project is especially with my one unbelievably simple tip! click here
I also share how I transformed ordinary terracotta pots with the best gold spray paint I have ever used! Like for real. The best gold spray paint. Click here.
Here’s how to get this style!

And now, for my most favorite furniture makeover! Well, maybe that’s a stretch because I often feel this way, but seriously I think it will be a favorite for a long time!
Do you remember last week I shared this photo of a bed I picked up over a year ago?
Well, I have long dreamed of a beautifully turned leg desk, but the prices! Gah! Everything I found was ridiculously expensive. But then I found this antique bed frame and figured there had to be a way to make the bed posts into legs!
I’ll be writing a full tutorial soon because it’s easy to find an old bed to transform or maybe you have one in your attic?
Happily, the desk turned out exactly as I had long envisioned. I couldn’t be more pleased with the way I was able to marry the different woods with a custom finish. More on that to come too!
Equally as exciting, I finally have a work surface to write while also having room for essentials like a day planner. The “temporary” desk I had been using was only 19 inches deep. Way too small!
I will be adding a desktop grommet for the cords to go through, but I wanted to work at the desk for a couple days to decide exactly where to place the hole in relation to the computer. Because once the hole is there, there’s no going back!
And did you catch a glimpse of the awesome rug provided by Rugs USA? That fringe is everything!
This week I have a few small projects to finish up and I’m waiting for a few more items to arrive. Here’s the list from a few weeks ago.
Hang wallpaper Paint attic door, can you guess what color? Hang shelf over windows Removeand replace shutters
- Hang custom macrame plant hangers
Paint industrial tool chest Build desk, you’ll never guess what I’m using to build it!
- Embellish and hang new light fixture
- Organize craft supplies and craft closet
- Build frame for and hang commissioned art
Style bookshelves to be attractive and functional
I’ve done pretty well with the list. Except for organizing the craft closet. I did move a few things around so I could shove more stuff in, but I’m sure that doesn’t count.
