Hey all! So, question. Do any of you have a room that always gets overlooked? You know the one. You get the room to a state that you can live with, and then move on? I DO! Actually, if I am being completely honest I have several of them…BUT soon there will be one less on the docket! Why? BECAUSE I am giving my Home Gym a Makeover! Disclaimer: When I say “Home Gym” I mean that in the loosest sense of the word. In all reality it is a room that houses my treadmill and a T.V. None the less, I do spend a decent amount of time in there, and the blandness of it is driving me crazy! Time to change that, I have goals to make it a much more inviting, and I am excited to get started and share the process with all of you!
So before we dive in, I want to give you a little info about how this is going down. I am teaming up with the great folks over at Frogtape® and 6 other talented bloggers to bring you The PaintOver Challenge®! Each of the 6 different bloggers (myself included) will be given a $1,000 budget and different design style in which we will channel to decorate our spaces. I will be rocking the “Haute Homemade” style! So let me show you the space I will be working with, and then I will give you a small glimpse into what I am concocting!
Alright, here it is Folks, my “gym” as it currently stands. When we first moved into the house a year ago it was baby blue… think Crayola “Sky Blue”. It was, uh, it was very, very baby blue. So I painted it a color I could stand, and moved on. That is until NOW!
Home Gym Makeover: Part 1
I know it’s not horrible or anything, but it is a far stretch from great. But as I openly admit, I can NEVER leave well enough alone.
So, I want to give you a sneak peak into my vision for this space. As I said, I received “Haute Homemade” as my style trend. What is “Haute Homemade” you might ask? Well, it’s all about making it your own! It’s taking flea market finds and making it fit with your own style. It’s creating and personalizing pieces that are unique to you and your space. As designer Taniya Nayak says “this trend makes crafting hot again.” and believe me, I will have plenty of crafts in my future.
My plans definitely include a lot of customized pieces, unique finds, vintage refreshes, and a whole lot of personalized touches. All the fun is about to get started… and it is going to require not 1 but 6 different colors! Make sure you stay tuned, because it is about to get CRAZY up in here.
In the meantime, you can read all about it and see the other bloggers projects….here.
