This wall immediately to the left as you walk in the room is where the future "office" part of the room will be.
This craigslist desk is getting a makeover in the form of paint. It was pretty cheap so I don't feel bad about it at all.
And here's the window seat that I was talking about. Way too small for my bum.
This cabinet was left over from the kitchen so we're going to work this in to make a bigger sitting area (with storage!!). And yes, we're going to do something with the floors. Probably refinish them since this is a craft room and it's likely to get a little messy.
It's a start.
So now what? The wheels are starting to turn in my head. Remember when I said I would never do a stencil again after the whole powder room thing? Well I've had a change of heart. Kind of like having a baby. You forget all the pain that was involved. Anyway, I don't want to spend a ton on wallpaper so why not? Besides, I may not do the whole room. Or maybe I will. I don't know, but a stencil is in this room's future. Specifically this one.

You could totally do a high/low version of this room pretty easily by the way. Stencil + craigslist desk + this fabric?

Now to come up with the color pallette. I really love everything about the one above and my room might end up looking like this, but I have a feeling my husband wouldn't be too happy about it. He's sharing the "office" portion of the room. So other contenders for the room are as follows (and they're not that masculine either...oopsy).
