Multi-Purpose Room is Done!

A few posts ago, I told that I was re-doing my multi-purpose room and that I would share pictures once it was done...well, it's done.  Before I share my pictures, I want to remind you that I was only using what I had on hand, therefore, I didn't buy new furniture, I didn't buy paint, I didn't buy fabric, I didn't buy new flooring, I didn't buy curtains, and I didn't buy accessories.  I could ONLY use the items I had around the house, stuff that I already had kicking around.   Again, I want to remind you it is not beautifully decorated like many of your homes and craft rooms, but it will be functional for my needs.   So, here are a few before you can see, it is not a very large room and I have to store my exercise equipment in this room.

My husband built this cabinet back in 1992 and over the years I have painted it at least 6 times.

The dark brown shelf sitting on the table was built by me.  The leaning door belongs to the cabinet.

Here are the after pics...

Another coat of layers now!

A ladder I made using scrap wood and my coffee filter wreath.  (had to use what I had on hand...just a reminder!)

The stars were green, so I gave them a coat of white paint finished with dark walnut stain to give them an antiqued look.

Now, here are some pictures with the exercise equipment back in the room.

Well, there you have room on a zero dollar budget.  Thank you for stopping by...your visit was welcomed!  Hope you all have a good day and great weekend!
