Moving forward - project home office begins

4/01/2011 04:38:00 AM

It's been a crazy past few weeks for me, crazy good that is. Everything is unexpectedly turning 360 in a truly positive way. I started this blog to document our much needed home makeover, share my DIY adventures, and just write about on what has been a passion of mine for the longest time -interior design.

Starting next week, I'll move forward. I'll take a bigger leap and do design projects other than our own abode. It's a challenge that I'm embracing with open arms and heart. Opportunities are banging on my door and I'm crazy not to let it in. I know I'm sounding like a high weirdo right now, but that's how I'm feeling --high with excitement and appreciation!

The first project is a stylist's home office. It's currently bare and is just a holding ground for stuff.

Here's the view from the main door. The door to the left is the bathroom.

The space has two huge windows that let in a lot of light, with an amazing view of the city. Lucky her!

With all of her stuff, this space's number one priority is efficient storage.

The plan is done but I'll share all the details on another post. It will be quite a list. One thing I'll tell you is a lot will be going on in the next couple of weeks. We'll take a wall down, a tub will be removed, the bathroom will have a new layout, floors will be changed, etcetera etcetera etcetera!

I'm thrilled to work outside my super tight (nearly non-existent) budget, and have my real vision materialized. I'll be sharing the progress of this space, so stay tuned!

I feel so blessed as two other projects are on the works (fingers crossed!), and I can't wait to start walking down this new path. I might even go back to school, we'll wait and see. :)

This may mean that our own home will take the back seat for now, you all know that I'm the only one who's doing the nitty-gritty on our projects. I don't blame them, it's all my idea anyway! haha.. But I'll still fit in a little here and there to finally have this house done.

Thank you all for sticking with me, and thank you God for the blessings!
