One of the things I’ve been most excited about the new house is setting up my new craft/dressing room!
There is still a bit of work to do and sadly my phone doesn’t take the best pictures since I’ve had to replace the screen…..twice now... But whatever, I’m excited and ready to share 🙂
Here was what it looked like before when it was a little girls room. Not the best picture, but it was hard for us to take pictures with the pushy relators who didn’t want us look at anything, but wanted us to look at EVERYTHING! Plus I kind of felt like a creeper…
BUT YES THAT IS A CHALKBOARD WALL!
This is what it looked like after we ripped out the 20 year old dog piss soaked carpet ..
And then I went wild and against everyone’s advice and painted it BRIGHT butterscotch yellow
Or well….my awesome husband painted it for me… I made mac and cheese 🙂
We were so exhausted… Living like hobos on a blow up mattress, eating cheap food straight out of the pots, with no furniture… All of our easy projects turned into not so easy projects and our to-do list kept growing instead of shrinking…..Yeah… But we made the best of it ha. And Joe is being a drama queen in the picture, he loves his hobo dinners 🙂
But! This is what my room looks like so far with all my junk in it 🙂
Why thank you rug!
Look at those pretty floors my husband made!
And then I filled it with all my crap ha I still need to hang my pegboard behind my table and work on brining in a few more things, but its been nice to have a full sized table to work on.
Of course I painted the closet hot pink too ha.
The chalkboard wall is so much fun. I ended up getting these chalkboard pens so I don’t have to deal with the messy chalk.
The regular chalk is hard to clean…
But I did find a trick online that helped get CLARK IS A BUTT off for good… Wipe it off with Coke, and then water so it isn’t sticky. Turned out looking brand new!
My wrecking ball 🙂
Like I said there is still a lot I need to work on but so far I’m pleased with it. I’m so excited to show off all of our hard work. There have been lots of ups and downs with the move, but at the end of the day I have the best husband ever, a cute pup, and a happy home with a gorgeous view <3
