Blogging without Borders

Several weeks ago a few of my blogging buddies suggested we start a summer series devoted to one progressive project...
One that would bring about challenges...and test our decorating ablilites...
A project that might just take us to our...breaking point
(Okay. Maybe a little too dramatic. But, you get the point, right?)

Allow me to introduce,

Over the next several weeks, I'll be taking you through the process of redecorating an entire room...from start to finish.


What room?...you might ask.
Hmmm. Are you sure you're ready for this?
Really. I don't even take my friends in here.
I'm not kidding. Some of the people that I tell my deepest, darkest secrets to have never even stepped foot in this room.

Ugh. Okay. Here we go...

Welcome to our "Game Room."




I know. I know. I can think of a few choice words myself...
So, clearly you see why it's time to take action and make a change.

Challenges:
1. Create a Play Room/Craft Room.
Currently, I see this room as a sorry excuse for a game area/craft spot...and often times storage center. It's dull, boring and lacking definition. I want to phase out the look of "game area" and transform it into more of a "play area" (play- meaning "play" for Ross and "craft" for me). 
(Sorry Grady. Come in here more, and you might get your room back.)

2. Large pool table.
Don't get me wrong. We love the pool table and want to continue to make use of it, but it does take up a lot of space in this room. I need to figure out how to allow access to it, yet decorate with it at the same time.

3. Odd little nook.
I want to make the most out of this funny little space that I dismissed in the beginning.


So, there you have it. No doubt, I've got my work cut out for me...start to finish.

Be sure to check out all my blogging buds, who decided to take up the challenge right along with me!


(Next progress report: July 16.) Pin It Now!
