I've been busy in mommy land since the birth of my son 3 months ago, but that hasn't stopped me from fixing up my guest room/art studio into a functional space.
My upstairs bedroom has been a lot of things over the last 5 years. It's obviously a catch all room, holiday decoration storage, art studio, and guest room. I've always had poor organization due to lack of shelves. My desk was left over from when we moved in and was falling apart.
I decided I'd turn the boxes into magazine holders. With just a coat of paint I transformed the boxes and I'm so pleased.
The Multi-functional Room:
The room has multiple uses now. It functions well with all of my art materials and I feel I can welcome guest without having to clean and hide clutter. I always had the bed under the window before. It took up the only wall that didn't have the attic crawl space doors. So for a change I moved it to the opposite wall in order to make room for the shelves to lineup under the window. I measured my height from floor to window trim and the length. I searched my sources through work but had no such luck. I then found these short inexpensive shelves that fit my height and width requirements perfectly. Later I will find the time to trim the bookcases to look more expensive and built in.
