My fabulous gift is a budget to turn the den into an actual "TomKat Studio"! To start it off, he & the kids gave me a gift certificate to Ikea! Yippee! It is going to be a super fun project and I am looking for ideas!
I currently have a huge armoire in our guest room that I LOVE from Ballard Designs (bought it used last year for $500, still sells for $1900...see below, photo from Ballard's website) It houses my big good printer, and all sorts of paper and crafting supplies. I plan on moving this armoire to the den, and moving a small black desk from the den to the guest room.
This is an office from Pottery Barn that I had saved in my "idea binder" that makes me sway toward using green, black and white! The den is also on the same side of the house with the master bedroom, which also has green accents. I might be so bold and add wallpaper to one wall? Something like damask or swirls or something might be fun. I've never wallpapered before, (only removed!) so any advice would be welcome!
Here are my goals so far:
1. A large table/desk for the middle of the room for work space (and comfy chair)
2. Storage shelves/baskets
3. Jars and goodies to hold all the little crafty items
4. Closet organization
5. Fancy lighting
6. A way to display projects/invitations
7. A small kids table/chairs, so my little ones can play too
I can't wait to get started! Any ideas?! Please share! I'm off to study my IKEA catalog!
My husband got creative and made me a certificate for the project, isn't that sweet?
