BEFORE: aka Beware the basement



Lets not even discuss that brown indoor/outdoor carpet with previous owner pet pee stains EWWWWW!!



Stage One:

Pyro the cat admires my floor



View from the closet (haha) The walls are less bright blue and a touch greener. More soothing... It's hard to capture true color




My desk- just waiting for my new iMac

Thanks!!  Grin

I fell in love with the desk on sight. Got the desk a year ago, crammed it into a tiny car and drove it 45 miles home, I've been dying to put it together. It's actually Ikea. It's a glass top (they used to have several styles) and you can choose between a few choices for the 'legs'. The top is really heavy.

It looks great so far! The flooring makes such a huge difference. The color you chose for the walls is really nice. It's bright and fun but still soothing - if that makes sense  Undecided.

That table looks like it could be DIY'd(is that a word? is now!) with a stencil and come paint....like stripes....I can't describe how but I can picture it. like if its glass use whatever to block out the design and then use a dark color to make it show up and voila! or use masking tape(like i'm going to!) carve out the design/stencil and spray paint it....rip off the tape and again voila!

Crafty folks such as those found here could probably pull a table like that off! Make sure your glass top has smooth/rounded edges. And do your painting/ stenciling on the bottom. This desk is lovely for crafting because glue comes right off. (Not that I get glue everywhere all the time or anything...) I also love the playful shadow patterns it throws up on the wall. My room is 90% complete,... I'll try to update with pics tomorrow
