You know those closets that seem to hold an endless supply of throw pillows and bins upon bins of long forgotten clutter? Well we have one off of our 3rd floor guest room. It’s big… bigger than a typical closet, but not quite big enough to be a full room. The previous state of the space was alllllll the kids outgrown clothes, many of my craft supplies, and a load of ‘miscellaneous.’ One of my resolutions this year was to declutter and to make sense of these spaces that feel a bit like a black hole.
A full kitchen renovation was never in our budget and, honestly, I don’t mind the layout. I love having the working part of the kitchen tucked away a bit from the site lines of the family room. The open area is plenty big enough for a table around which we can all sit, there’s great counter space, great storage… so the aesthetics were really the biggest problem.
When I tell you this post is down to the wire, I mean it’s DOWN TO THE WIRE! I actually photographed the room last week, but editing and hitting publish was the challenge here! I digress… our third floor bathroom is DONE! Fin! Complete! With everything all said and done, this makeover was my favorite type: dramatic before/ after but not any real “heavy lifting”… i.e. mostly superficial!
Our family room is next on my hit list. I have plans in place for a major overhaul, but until then, I’m trying to freshen up the space a bit and using smoke and mirrors to give it a new look! When Annie Selke offered to send along some of their newly launched autumn decor collection (hello, indigo!), I was THRILLED to use it as a springboard for the family room reboot.
