For just deciding to start the One Room Challenge last week literally on the day of the One Room Challenge I have to admit things are going pretty good. (Of course that’s when things fall apart when you think you’re on track.)
My husband has been busy working on storage and organization for the closet. I have ordered whatever I needed to online. I’ve gotten confirmation that everything is on it’s way except for the lights. Fingers crossed they’re coming. If not I will have to make a different selection.
I believe in slow decorating 9 times out of 10 but sometimes it’s good to not overthink it so much (which I tend to do). I really just want to get this room done. This is a small space that both my husband, I and are 4 year son plan on using a lot.
We finished building the desk that we started when we first moved in this week. It wraps around 3 of the walls and we just used basic lumber from Home Depot. The project took about 8 hours for us novices. Right now everything thats been sitting in the office for months got thrown onto this side of the office because the closet is currently being organized. ! I’m just keeping it real this ORC go around. Week 2 is not a week for pretty photos.
We reused Drew’s black ALEX drawer units from Drew’s last office. They hold everything and more! We are using 3 of them. Drew will have one, I will have one and we will share the last one. I have to figure out the best way to organize them all. I’m hoping to do a separate post just on organizing because that’s going to be a big part of this room.
Next week I’ll post more specifics and links to the products and I hope I’ll have more to show you than just a messy space.
Thanks for following along and as always thank you Linda for kicking my butt into gear.
