Hey guys, how are we all keeping?
So this post is a little different, but I’m super happy with the results so I couldn’t help but share ☺️
Working from home during the pandemic with multiple of virtual calls a day, had me really wanting to change the space that I was suddenly spending so much time in. I decided to put my money where my mouth is and do just that!
Being my first ever DIY project, I researched heavily into the process of transforming a room – making sure that my efforts (& money) wouldn’t go to waste.
Below are some images of what my room looked like prior to the transformation. As we can see, the walls are quite dark in colour, so I needed to go over the grey with a white basecoat, which is necessary for the new, lighter colour to show up.
I donated my wardrobe to a charity called the ‘British Heart Foundation’ – who then go on to sell donated furniture in their stores with the money from the sale going towards medical research. The TV stand was repurposed to a book shelf in another area of the house, and all remaining furniture…well did just that, remained.
£300 and a few days later
As you can see, it wasn’t much of a drastic change but a well needed one! The main thing aside from the colour and minor furniture change, is the absence of my TV 😢
This was a tough one to get rid of but I found it was no longer serving me. I wanted my room to be a space of relaxation (hence the sage green walls) with minimum clutter, so it had to go.
We also have the addition of some new storage, the Brimnes wardrobe & the Malm drawers, both from Ikea.
I have a more detailed product & cost breakdown in my Youtube video which I will link below 🙂 Please let me know what you think in the comments or if you have any questions ❤️
