There’s nothing better than finally finishing a project that you’ve been working on for a while and being able to take full advantage of the finished product. Recently, we’ve spent a lot of time decorating my brother’s old room since he’s moved out and turning it into an office for myself and my dad to share. As the walls were blue, it took quite a few coats of paint to cover it but the walls are now cream and the room looks a lot bigger than it did before.
We’ve got rid of my brother’s single bed and for the time being have replaced it with a small outdoor sofa until we can find a suitable sofa bed. To smarten this up a bit and make it look a bit less like outdoor furniture, I’ve covered it in a fleece blanket and have added some cushions from George at Asda and B&M.
Apart from the sofa bed, the only element that I feel is missing from my new office is some wall art. I have quite a lot of prints favourited on Etsy and I’ll definitely be purchasing a few of them and getting some frames when I can decide which ones I want. I like to go for ~inspirational quotes~ from my favourite TV shows or books such as Parks and Recreation and Harry Potter, as you can see from the selection above.
Our next project to tackle is the garage – there’s still boxes of my stuff in there from when I moved back from uni almost five years ago and I’ll be moving back there in September so it really does need sorting out! As well as tidying the place up, we also need to look into getting a new roof as we’ve been having a few leaks when we get heavy rain, we’re going to see if Peters Roofing can help us out with that one.
