The process of transforming a poorly used guest room to a space solely designated as MINE started with me craving a space where I can:
- Work at home
- Paint watercolors
Ideally this space would be bright with lots of light with enough room for me to leave a project out that I’m working on without having to take it out, put it away, take it back out, put it back away, etc.
After wrestling with the decision, talking about it with my girlfriends and Mark I finally gave myself ‘permission’ to take over the guest room and I couldn’t be happier.
Just about everything except for the fabric, chair and table legs came from my local hardware store. The Allerdice Ace Hardware store in Malta is where I got the paint, trim, dowels for the roman shade.
Kim–I LOVE it !! Such a wonderful before/after–are you for hire?? Seriously, love the changes and thanks for the idea of the trestle table–my daughter needs something to be able to draw on and the only thing big enough was my cutting table–which was too high to sit at. Great ideas and I hope to share them at my house!
Janice – Thank you! FYI – the table legs are awesome. You can even set them up to create an angled surface. Let me know how you make out.

Love it! I like everything about it. I am planning my own workspace, too, for when we move next fall. I am taking over what would have been the 2nd bedroom. I can’t decide on paint colours, but yellow and blue will feature somehow. My husband has also agreed to take out the window and replace it with sliding glass patio doors and build a very small little deck. So since the room is only about 10×10, I will have nearly one entire wall of glass! I can just imagine myself on a hot summer day with the sliding door open and the breeze coming in.
