A Note From The Home Depot
Kristen Johnson of A Girl and Her Glitter was one of our winners from this year’s Orange Tank Pitch Competition. She submitted her dream project and presented on stage at the 2019 Haven Conference. Read below how she transformed an empty space into her dream Insta-ready space.
I’m so very excited to present to you this incredible before and after DIY project. The combination of Home Depot decor and DIY projects completed in this makeover will help you get one step closer to being Insta-ready.
From the Windows to the Walls
Let’s first begin in what I believe is the crown jewel of the room, the removable wallpaper. My husband and I wanted our bedroom to be masculine with touches of femininity. This navy wallpaper with bursts of gold is sheer perfection and something we could both agree on. To apply, you simply peel off the backing and stick onto your wall. This paper is completely renter friendly as well as “change your mind whenever you want” friendly. It applies easily and removes like a dream.
The Desk of All Trades
When shopping for furniture for our master bedroom, I scrolled through so many options on Homedepot.com and found this beauty. The color and all the functional features were a must have. This desk has two drawers; one is deep and great for my taller beauty products, the other is perfect for my slender make up items. The space between these two drawers allowed me to add in pretty baskets with great texture.
The adjustable height top also serves as hidden storate for my every day styling items. The desk also has a built in cord management system that cleverly hides and organizes all my cords. Having all of my hot tools stored here makes for such a pleasant look in our room. This desk turned vanity is exactly what we were looking for in this space.
Magic Mirror on the Wall
Nothing says chic like a black metal rimmed mirror in your home. Add a full motion tilt-swivel tv mount to your mirror for a simple hack. Now you can pull it forward for close ups and tilt it all around to capture the perfect light when you’re getting insta-ready. When you’re finished, simply swivel the mirror back into place on the wall.
Shine Your Light
Should you need more lighting in your newly renovated space, this nickel led desk lamp will do just the trick. Having the metals mixed throughout this area creates an eclectic look overall. The silver tone against the gold in the wallpaper causes it to pop and add visual interest.
Your Space, Your Influence
Wherever you are in your walk of life, you are have an influence on those around you and deserve a space to call your own. Create a space to get Insta-ready with simple DIY projects and decor from The Home Depot.
