Happy week 2 of the One Room Challenge, everyone! Not much of a post today. This week I’ve been focused on something that’s not very exciting, but really crucial: editing.
Removing the excess things that I know I don’t want in the room. So far I’ve removed:
- three mirrors that will belong in a different room
- my photo printer and office printer! We found another home for them.
- a giant decorative frame
- various office supplies that I don’t use often
- a lamp that needs to be repaired
- a chair and an upholstered bench that didn’t quite fit right
It’s not the most exciting! But editing out the things that aren’t serving the space gives you a chance to reset the room. A blank canvas is so much easier to work with than a cluttered room!
So what are the steps we need to take to make this study space functional?
- finish editing my stuff and find a home for everything
- rearrange my rug so the door doesn’t catch on it
- moody accent wall — I’ve got a crazy experiment for this one!
- bring in some unkillable, don’t-need-too-much-sun plants
- hang artwork
- hang lights above reading chair
- optimize desktop and workspace for easy access
Also, I’m super excited about something I found at a local thrift store. Here’s a sneak peek at the piece…
See you next week with more of an update! In the meantime, go check out the other One Room Challenge projects here.
