The leaves are changing, so you know what that means. It’s time for another Pinterest Challenge! Oh, that wasn’t where you thought I was going? I’m joining up with some of my favorite bloggers: Katie of Bower Power,Sherry of Young House Love and Ana White, as well as Erin from House of Ernest (who is new to me, but I’m always glad to add another one to the ole’ Google Reader).
The name of the game: take one of your many pins on Pinterest and make it with your own spin on it. I was inspired by an office set-up on Live Creating Yourself. It wasn’t until I was searching through all my pins that I realized I had pinned it twice. Love at first and second pin:
I’ve been working on fixing up our guest bedroom and office. (You may recall my recent redo that has now morphed a bit more.) It’s a room that’s mostly been a catch-all for stuff we don’t want to deal with. The inspiration board will help give the space more life and bring some much needed color and pattern to the beige, beige and more beige. I couldn’t get that second photo out of my mind, so I hopped on over to Ikea and got my Expedit on. It will be perfect for storing my sewing and crochet stuff.
So I followed the tutorial from Live Creating Yourself and came up with this:
Not bad, right? I still need to add some magazine clippings and paint chips, but that will come eventually. I just had to add a light blue chevron pattern (from the Scarlet Poppe who so nicely sent me a rush order of a yard).
I love me a good challenge. Don’t you?
