I’ve joined up three other blogging buddies to do a diy challenge which is hosted by Terrie !!
This months diy challenge is going to be a diy home improvement or can be anything that will spruce up your home inside or out!! I chose to do a room spruce up!!
My challenge is my media /movie room!
Just so you all know , even though this house is a new build there are lots of things we are doing ourselves!
Basically in a nutshell, the media room or movie room as some call it, is actually one of the last rooms on our agenda to style. It actually become a dumping ground and we just couldn’t use it , so when our host Terrie from decorateandmorewithtip.com came up with the challenge , I just couldn’t say no and decided to join in.
Here are some before pictures of the room
All that knows me knows that I’m not into colours too much , I love everything white and nuetral.. but in our new build I promised my hubby that he could have some say in decorating the media/ cinema room .. So I had to try do something that was not so girly but yet have a classy look while still having some masculinity in it..
The first thing I did was add curtains.. especially for privacy !! Our ceiling are 2.6 high and I wanted them to hang high from the ceilings . Being a media room there could be no light seeping through unfortunately they don’t make curtains that high and it would have been thousands to get them custom made. I had two sets so I joined them together and made them longer adding a ribbon at the seem join! I also change out the pleating tape an I also bought material at half price for the black backing!
The room had no where to put our new 86” TV and our solos system.. So the second thing I had to do was buy a tv console table so that’s the very first thing I started with started with was make over on this tv console that I picked up last week on market place. You can click the link here https/throughavintagedoor.com/tv-console- https://throughavintagedoor.com/?p=2492 to see how I did the makeover on this.
Now that I had curtains and a tv console table I could move on and decorate! 💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻
So I started rummaging through my garage I and opening up boxes to see what I had. I hung a few pictures and my huge clock that I love.
The sun was shining so photos where hard to catch .. But this room is a movie room so It will need to be dark.
Over all this room has become a lot better than just being a dumping ground.. It’s actually cosy now!!
This is not the style I had planned out for the room , but however , it’s now functional and looks so much better than a dumping room. So for a temporary fix to an unwelcoming room I’m thinking this looks pretty cosy!!
I hope you enjoyed my quick room makeover. Don’t forget to check out the links below to get some more inspiration from my blogging friends.
Stay blessed all!!
