One Room Challenge – Home Office & Mudroom Makeover – Week 4

One Room Challenge – Home Office & Mudroom Makeover – Week 4

Is this my first post for the fall ’23 ORC? Yes it is. Do we only have 4 weeks left? Yes we do. Do I seriously need to get busy? Why yes, yes I do!

The good news is I started and I think I have a plan. Can plans change? Sure and they might, but here is where and what I am planning at the moment.

For the fall ’23 One Room Challenge I have decided to finish my home office I started months ago as well as re-do my back entryway/mudroom.

Let’s take a look at where I am starting.

Home Office

I bought these IKEA Pax closet cabinets months ago. While they have been great for storing all my design samples. I dislike seeing all my samples.

I needed some color and inspiration in my office so I painted the ceiling SW Raging Sea in August. My table in here came from my breakfast nook when I re-did it for the spring ORC. It’s big and makes a great work table.

The Plan

  • Build-in the PAX cabinets to look custom
  • Buy and add custom trim to PAX doors
  • Create a soffit with custom paneling
  • Create a desk area
  • Wallpaper back of desk wall
  • Paint the rest of the space SW Pure White
  • Install new chandelier over work table
  • Install custom drapes on window
  • Hang pin boards for client concepts

  • Panel walls and add additional hooks
  • Paint paneling and cabinets -Color TBD
  • Wallpaper above paneling
  • Wallpaper ceiling
  • Convert recessed light to a pendant light

That’s the plan as of today. I am still waiting to confirm my wallpaper samples. Hopefully it all works out and colors are what I think they will be.

I’ll be sharing design ideas and plans as we continue on this makeover journey. You can check out my IG for some behind-the-scenes, thoughts, probably bloopers and blunders and more.
