And in case it’s hard to remember what it looked like when I started, here it is before.
More after photos are below. The transformation included a few diy projects. For instance, I made drop cloth curtains, divided a pillow in half, made art (on top of the book shelf), printable art, made coasters, made flowers for magnets, made magnet boards, painted a letter “K” to look metal, painted a peg board and painted upholstery on a second chair.
I painted the art on the bookshelf to mimic the chevron pattern in the rug.
Below are flowers that act as magnets for the two metal magnet boards that flank the subway art. I made the two rolled ones and the two fluffy ones.
And, paint chips hung on the peg board serve as a backdrop for vintage keys. These were gifted to me from Emily at Ashbury Lane. She is having a 25% off sale right now. Be sure to visit her Etsy shop.
Printable art that I made meets you at the entrance and sets the tone of the room.
Hope you enjoyed the reveal! I’ve enjoyed working in the room already.
