Web imageMy motherinlove used to say that everyone needed a project to do and for the last several years I have been revamping, replacing and remodeling a few things here and there. I've heard it said that if you truly want your project to be exactly how you dreamed it would be then you must be PATIENT! OUCH!
But here I am in a brand new year and ready to tackle another home project.
Web imageI have four bedrooms in my home. One in which of course I sleep in. One is the grandbabies "Play Room" which so desperately needs to be organized and some things tossed. One room my man calls the "The Buck Room" because we have deer mounted on the wall and the decor is totally a hunting theme in which we both love. But then I have "My Room" which has turned into a disaster and all by my own doings!
Now, I admitted it...it's totally my fault that it looks like a hurricane has went through there.
Oh it started out nice years ago. You know...my own little room which was called my "Prissy room" but has become my junk room! I began to use it for WHATEVER, tossing things in there only to take me forever to find them when I needed them and well...I am quite sure you know how the rest of the story goes. Hey, I am just being real here!
So here I am now...in desperate need of some inspiration. Truthfully I need the energy! But maybe If I get inspired I might get some energy huh? I want to take my small 12x12 room and make good use of it. I have my computer, sewing machine, crafting stuff, and well...I have LOTS of stuff in there! In all honesty, I don't sew that much but in the event I choose too I want to be able to have my sewing machine at my fingertips. I do use my desk computer a lot so that has to stay. I take crafting by spells and those spells are far and few between and sometimes it's not so much "crafting" as it is I just WANT MY STUFF where I can get to it in case I want it. You know what I mean?
So here is where I need some ideas because sometimes one person's idea may be all that we need to inspire us. What to do with this closet? As you can see from the picture the closet isn't that big. It's not tiny but it's not big and it has a single door. I have seen some ideas on pinterest that has sparked my interest but not so sure I wouldn't want to leave it a closet and store things in. Or maybe take the door off completely and revamp the inside.
Here is what size door and closet I have...YES...mess and all!
Dang, I actually spotted something in picture I forgot I had!!!
So, not sure if I would need more lighting if I turned this closet into......
And I wouldn't be able to use the closet for storage too much either.
With this style I could get more storage for sure but wondering if I should do away with door altogether. I could do the little french doors but they would have to small for sure.
And this is a great idea should I keep the door.
I love the idea of having one large unit on one wall in which this could be done in a smaller version on one of my walls.
I also like the L shape look.
And I just think this is so stinking cute.
I like the simplicity of this look and yet you have some storage and some counter space.
There is no questioning on flooring. I know I want wood. Actually this is the only room in my house that we have not redone the flooring and it's about time. It still has the makeup stained carpet from my daughters being home many years ago.
The color? Well remember when everyone was doing the sponge paint look? Oh I loved it and I loved my border paper. I was so brave going from white to this pink marble color to begin with but I think it might be time for a change. And I hear that border wall paper if OUT! But...I promise you it will be back IN next week! LOL!
And I have two small windows in the room with the lace curtains. The color scheme is this room is pinks, hunter green, and roses. I called it my Prissy room once upon a time.
Now here is what I truly want to accomplish: I want more counter top availability so I can have room for my sewing machine, computer, and whatever else I might want it for. Maybe a cricket.....or embroidery machine...I am thinking big right now and for the future days of when I retire of having something else to do! Well maybe not...my daughters will keep me busier than I would want to be! LOL! TRUST ME...I don't get bored easily and I ALWAYS have plenty to do! I want a counter space to stand or to sit to wrap gifts or work on projects. I want a closet that is functional in every sense of the way. Either to HIDE my ORGANIZED chaos or to display it proudly! PLUS I have so many books that I will not part with in which a lot of them are Bible Studies I have taught over the years. So....gotta have a place for them. AND I am talking all that in a small 12x12 room! WHEW! I am wore out thinking about all this. Now I not only need inspiration but I need ENERGY, TIME and MONEY!
The perfect solution would be to combine two rooms and make one big room which would mean the play room would be gone! Not so sure I want to do that though. And my man wasn't sold on that idea either and since he will be my MAIN MAN in this project I don't want to push my luck!
And this would be a dream room but I am afraid I might want to LIVE in there!
And then there is color schemes. Good grief! Too much to pick from.
Then I might need a theme you know! Vintage, retro, French...Oh I just don't know!
So, in the meantime while I let all these 1000 thoughts drive me crazy and I try to be INSPIRED I think I will just start by cleaning the room up! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Do you have some projects you want to do this New Year but you are like me and just need inspiration and maybe energy? Maybe we can inspire one another.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
