Hey there and welcome to week two of Project: #1room30days. I am excited to have this project underway and even more excited to show you my progress for week one. This past weekend, I spent time de-cluttering this room and getting rid of the things that no longer fit in the new look that I am going for. A lot of things I sold online through my local Facebook group and some items I donated.
I also got a chance to install and decorate my Ikea Vittsjo Shelving unit. The unit comes with two rows and retails for $79.99. In this space, I wanted an area to hide all of my little items that would normally be in drawers, a place to store my abundance of makeup, and I wanted it all to look pretty and less cluttered. Since I have always loved the look of the Ikea Vittsjo shelving that I had seen on Pinterest and it is now offered in white, this unit was definitely up my alley.
You may remember in my office plans, I mentioned wanting to purchase the Ikea white Expedit unit. Well, once I saw it in the store, I changed my mind. It wasn't as tall as I had hoped it would be. I am much happier with the Vittsjo for sure!
I placed my shelving unit against the wall where the futon used to be. It actually came with anchors to secure it into the wall to avoid tipping.
I purchased two units and pulled different pieces that I already owned, some from Goodwill, and other little store bought trinkets and decked out my units a bit.
Here she is on that same wall now:
I want the new office to serve as a space for myself and my husband to use, so I didn't want to make it too girly. Since he is giving up the basement as his man cave so that we can use it as a family space, I thought the least I could do it make this a unisex area.
So what do you think?
Stay tuned next week for more office updates! I have been sourcing rugs and definitely think that I have found a winner!
Oh, and don't forget to follow me on Instagram to check out other sneak peeks.
Until next time!
