Bonus Room Reveal!
Finally, I'm ready to show you my Bonus Room. A year ago, this room was a blah dumping ground.
It sort of stressed me out every time I was in this room. I wanted it to be functional, but also to be elegant, inviting, peaceful, and beautiful. (Not too much to ask, right?) So, one project at I time, I worked towards that goal.
Probably the most massive undertaking was planking the ceiling and making faux beams, which you can read about here.
Another time consuming project was making these built in bookshelves with cabinets at the bottom. You can read about that adventure working with the slanted ceiling here.
On the opposite side of the room, I made this faux fireplace to hold and hide electronics. You can read about that here.
I added some doors to this IKEA cubby shelf to help hide clutter that couldn't be easily stored in a basket. See how I added a mirror- like touch here.
The chair by the window used to be a waiting room chair, which I reimagined (I have one more in my garage that I'm working on to match). See the transformation here.
I made this Murphy bed to keep our guest mattress at hand, but out of sight. To see how I fashioned a platform large enough to hold a double size mattress, go here.
I love my Harry Potter map project. To see where I got the fabric, go here.
The piano bench was also a makeover project that used to be a coffee table, which I blogged about here.
I really feel like I achieved my goal. This room is now one of my favorites in the house. I come up here to read, but end up just staring at how pretty the room is.
Thanks for stopping by!
