ORC Week 5 | DIY | Homework Station & Pegboard Toy Storage

ORC Week 5 | DIY | Homework Station & Pegboard Toy Storage

There’s only one more week till the One Room Challenge reveal! I’m giving my kids’ shared bedroom a makeover with a bright, modern design. This week, I finished tackling one of the biggest projects in the kids’ room: a DIY pegboard toy storage wall and a small-space homework station. If you remember the floor plan, you’ll also remember that the room isn’t terribly large. But, once I’d planned out the space, it became clear that there was this big blank… View Post

This week, I’m talking about how the DIY wall decals went up, because they have made a big impact on the space. The Design Plan How to Hang DIY Wall Decals I actually put the wall decals and the shelves up a couple of months ago, which… View Post

ORC Week 1 | Mood Board | Shared Kids’ Room Design

I am joining a biannual design event called the One Room Challenge. A host of interior design bloggers each makeover a space in six weeks, sharing weekly updates. I’ve been following it forever, harbouring mild envy at what people are able to achieve in such a short time, and soaking up all the gorgeous inspiration too, of course. Now I’m joining them, working on a bright kids’ bedroom design for my son and daughter. Shared Kids’ Room Mood Board I’m… View Post
