Last month I came across a decorating challenged to take one space and decorate it a new way each month using items already owned. It was a no cost decorating challenge. If you would like to take a look at some great looking spaces, you can see it here. I discovered this challenge a little too late in the game, but it made me start to think about my own space. Could I decorate or redecorate my home without purchaseing new items? I was up for this personal challenge.
My first attemp at this challenge was shared in my Pottery Barn Look Alike post. I attempted to recreate a staged bed that I spied at Pottery Barn from shopping my own stash. I was pleased at it’s result. My next space I would like to attempt is my home office, particularlly my desk.
A while back, I did gather some items from various Friday Find sprees to use in accessorizing my desk. However, I really did not go much farther than that. Not sure why…. I gusess I needed to see how I was going to use my desk and what exactly I nedded to make it functional.
Here is the result. Do I think it will stay this way, clutter free? Um no! But the added owl accents do make me smile every time I sit down. Oh do you spy the white moose container to the left of the monitor? It was an impulse purchase I made. I swear it called out to me to take it home. I love a little whimsy. So if you want to get technical, this was not completely a no cost decorating success but I sm liking it. Tell me , how do you keep your work space clutter free? Or do you?
