Craft Room Makeover ORC Week 1 - Beauteeful Living

It’s makeover time on Beauteeful Living now that the spring edition of the One Room Challenge (ORC) has arrived! For those new to this blog, I typically participate in this highly anticipated bi-annual event hosted by Linda of Calling It Home. Twenty design influencers are selected to take on this friendly makeover challenge as featured designers. Guest participants like myself can also join the challenge by sharing our process during these 6 weeks. The big reveals will take place May 8th (featured designers) and May 9th (guest participants). Oh… time is ticking away already!

Shall we get to the space that I’ll be working on for this spring’s ORC edition?

It’s time to “Take Back Our Home From Our Kids!” Okay, maybe not get rid of their entire playroom but I’m reclaiming a part of that space and turning it into a CRAFT room!

Here’s the space I’m working with for this makeover:

Craft Office Room

This space is on the first level of our home, right near our small foyer (see photo below). Between this wall and the foyer lies our guest bath. You may recall last spring’s ORC makeover when I updated our guest bath (link here).

Below is a photo of the center wall in this space which I’ll be treating as an accent wall.

I love how much light floods this space thanks to the large window in this photo. By the way, I definitely need new window treatments!

Now … the right side of the room. It’s time to say goodbye to the doll house and toy kitchen. 🙁
