craft part of room progress

If you’ve been following me for a bit, you know I took on the June room challenge.  So I wanted to share the craft part of room progress with you all.  And I know technically we are now in July.  Thankfully for me Serena made this a 6 wk challenge so I’m not really behind.  If the room is not complete by the end of this week then I will be behind the eight ball as they say.  But we will cross that bridge when we get to it.  Fast approaching I know… lol

Here’s a little look back at how this room started out

This room started 3 outta 4 walls painted red.  The other wall was white.  Overfilled with every box of stuff and my Donna dresser that had not yet found its home here in the new apartment.  I told you all about how I’ve moved yet again <here.

Project one was getting half the room into a closet.  I really like a white closet so this part of the room went all white.  This will be my 3rd in as many apartments.  I’ve developed a habit out of always turning any extra room, in my apartments into walk in closets.  You can see my last one here>  closet II.  One of my friends was such an amazing help reworking my old pieces into this closet.


I’v started painting and organizing the other side now…

I used the same blue that I used for pops of color in my bedroom.   As I still had over half a can left over from those projects.  It’s by far the only real color I love as opposed to black and white which are not “real colors”.  So they say.  lol  Even my iPhone cover is that color.  I’ll show you below as I also show you the Case&More tempered glass I got to protect my phone.  I’m loving my iPhone 6 and definitely want to protect it.  I’ve gone threw my other iPhone screens none to wisely so this time taking care of it is totally a priority.  So far so good this screen protector works like a dream.

Now back to the craft part of room in progress.  I’m loving it.  Here’s a sneak peek at how the Donna dresser will work in the space.



You will get to see the final reveal very soon.  When this challenge is over.
