Today’s the big day, you guys.
I’m finally sharing the studio makeover I’ve been working on with IKEA College Park, and I can’t wait for you to see it!!!
We moved from a one-bedroom apartment to a house with several more rooms, so we basically only had furniture for our bedroom, upstairs living room, and dining room. Since we were starting from scratch for the rest of the house — including my Shrimp studio/guest suite — we knew we needed to keep affordability in mind to be able to do the whole house.
We were really lucky to be able to partner with IKEA for this, but we did absolutely every aspect with affordability in mind, with the entire room coming in at under $2,500, including painting the walls and finishing the floor molding!
We took on a real challenge with this room in our new house: mustard yellow walls, super low ceilings, limited natural light, and needing to use a relatively small space for multiple purposes. This has been our most satisfying home project so far.
We now have a bright, airy guest room office for me to work; shoot my posts for the blog; and host out-of-town guests.
P.S. No big deal or anything, but WE GOT A PUPPY!!!
