Craftroom makeover - the sofabed!

Feels like I've been away from the web for so long...I only managed to check in for short periods while our internet connection was on hold for the past several days. Now I can post again, yay!
I've got lots of pics to show here -

First off, a few days ago I woke up to this mess (after I tidied up the mattress I was sleeping on) Surely I didn't get a good night's sleep! So I decided this is the day I was going to buy me a bed. Never mind that I was saving up for our living room sofa set - that could wait... I had a hunch I will find just the right bed for me, so off I went to go shopping.

Btw, I wore my crocheted beads necklace for a quick-fix accessory ...hehehe, had to mention that too ;)

I was looking for a sofa, the size of a single bed (36 x 75 inches) - Didn't really expect to find one, since I know that most sofa beds are ones that fold over... But I found one, and its the only one!
Orange isn't normally a color I would pick, but surprisingly, looking at it makes me happy :)

Of course, just before the sofabed was to be delivered, I managed to clear up some of the mess, and declutter a bit. I also removed the old curtain, since the color didn't match. The color and stains on the walls didn't match either, but I just ignore it...since I couldn't get it painted yet :p

Oops...soon as the sofa was delivered, I thought I should organize my craft closet - so I took out most of the stuff in there. I was able to put it back as neatly as possible. Now I know where to find my finished projects and the yarns that were gifted to me ;)

The next day I bought some ready-made curtains.

I'm loving this, and can forget about my ugly walls and ceiling...for now :)

Sofabed set: Homeworks, P13,500.
Curtains (4 panels): Shopwise, P800.

  1. it looks soo nice! love the bead necklace too.

  2. It looks great, Mimi. Maybe you could "make" the wall color work by getting a picture with both colors in it? (I can't really tell what the wall color is..) Congratulations. :D (Your necklace looks nice, too, btw) :)

  3. I love your sofa its so bright and cheerful!! Your necklace is cute to!!

  4. Thank you Pearlin, Tina and Cherry :)
    Tina, the wall color is dusty rose pink, it used to be a nice color...but the paint is so old and stained already.

  5. wow ! amazing ! I'm really happy for you :)The room looks great... I have an entire room for myself. but when my baby arrived, I have to hire a yaya.. so I might not be able to utilize the room as I planned... sooner or later, I'll have to find a new home for some of my stash... >> congratulations on your new craft room :) I'm sure a lot of new projects and new designs will come out of it :)

  6. Thank you Bheng! I'm already getting inspired just looking at the room improvement and reading your comments ;)
    Enjoy your baby for now (with the help of a yaya) you can still do some crafting and someday you'll be able to reclaim your craft room ;)
