I was trolling blogs yesterday for a bit and came across this awesome office re-do by Pearl Street Interiors on Abbey’s cute blog. I probably wouldn’t have reposted was it not for the wealth of DIY tutorials that came along with it. Mega inspiration.
She gives a tutorial on how to refinish two pieces of furniture in an extremely cost effective way. And, I’m more interested in these others, how to cover bulletin boards and how to make fabric window shades from your existing mini-blinds. I think I’ve gone to redecorating heaven.
We have mini blinds on every window in our house. They drive me insane but for whatever reason I’ve be able to live with them for the last 7 years. Look out mini-blinds. You’re about to be stripped to your skeleton and covered with fabric. Possibly this weekend.
And then there’s the bright red credenza/dresser thing and patterned cork boards. The credenza I’ll probably skip, but appreciate. Corkboards… you will be mine.
Also, I’ve always liked that Ikea rug… might be cute for baby’s room? I had a mini meltdown last night about our lack of space, our insane amount of stuff, and the impending introduction of lots more stuff into our life. Does everybody go through this when they’re about to have a baby? Brock reminded me that we could live in New York in a one bedroom apartment. True.
I’m desperately clinging to the idea that our house will remain and adult house, even with a baby. Tell me it’s possible.
