Sooo, I know its been awhile since I’ve posted any updates. Frankly, I haven’t done much worth updating y’all about. I’ve been patching some of the holes from my intercom system with the leftover drywall from my parent’s 4th of July visit and spending time on basic homeowner things – cleaning (2.5 bathrooms and 2200 sq ft takes a while!), and having friends over for dinner (without a working oven mind you).
I’ve also been debating which project I want to do next:
- Remove wallpaper in kitchen, master bath, vanity or entry
- Paint office
- Furnish patio
- Paint cabinets/door in half bath
I would LOVE to get started on the wallpaper, but I know its going to be a several phase project between the actual removal, mudding the walls and then painting, its going to take a lot of work. I should probably finish the half bath, but I think I want to do something that will have a larger impact. Although the patio just needs furniture and a grill, it requires little sweat equity but a decent amount money – did you know outdoor tables & chairs are upwards of $300??
Therefore, I think I’ve settled on painting my office. It currently has wood paneling on the lower half of the walls and pink paint on the top half, as well as on the closet door.
I spent hours searching on Pinterest & Houzz and found these 3 images as my inspiration:
I am planning on moving my black futon into the room in the future when I get fancy formal living room furniture, so it is important the black wood frame will work with the colors I choose. I am obsessed with this white desk from the Container Store, but I think I need to stick to black/espresso wood furniture. The furniture will be figured out much later down the line…
Which of the inspiration images do you like best: tropical, contemporary, or modern?
