So, after many seasons of saying we are going to do the One Room Challenge, but in evidently remaining on the sidelines, it is time. Although we can get a little ambitious sometimes, we decided for our first project, no knocking out walls, installing flooring, or heavy construction; just converting a bedroom to a home office, so our office no longer resides on Kim’s kitchen table.
The timing was perfect as Kim’s daughter had taken a teaching job and needed her bedroom furniture for her condo. Now, this isn’t the first time we have tried to create an office. The first was Kim’s bonus room. Then, in July, we realized that the one air-conditioning unit in their house, couldn’t quite cool off two “mature” women in their prime during the brutal Carolina summers.
So it was time to move downstairs.
Above, is the bonus room that got a little too warm in the summer. Below, is Hannah’s bedroom, which will soon be a home office! Lots of natural light and cool – and best yet, since we are newbies at this, no major construction! We even love the paint, Benjamin Moore “sea salt” so we decided to keep it.
So, we definitely want to keep the light and airy feel of this space, but make it more functional. Its not an incredibly large room, so we will probably have to only have one desk. But, since a lot of our work is done on laptops, good comfortable chairs are a must.
And since we are in the drapery business, thinking about updating those
So, next week will be spent narrowing down ideas and getting down to business. Can’t wait to get started!
Can’t wait to see all of the other ORC guest participant progress!
hogs and kisses,
Kim and Jeanne
