I am so excited, and at the same time relieved, that Suraya’s space is finally done! I’m not the only one… so is Suraya! Ready to see the final outcome? Just in case you forgot what it looked like before, you can see it HERE.
Here is Suraya’s cleaned up, organized, and more breathable space…
Her desk is no longer crowded… she actually has space to work on it! Don’t mind the calendar, journal, and drawing pad that you see laid out… those are just laid out for effect (hehe).
Also check out underneath the desk… it’s empty! Now Suraya can swing her legs freely while she works, as well as push her chair in. :) See behind the chair… more open space. She no longer has to struggle to get in and out of her chair!
I found that pink chalkboard basket at TJ Maxx. I labeled it as “Stuff”. It’s for those random things that Suraya may just have the urge to toss on her desk or things that just don’t belong anywhere else. Ya know, just stuff!
One of Suraya’s favorite hobbies is drawing. She loves to draw, so I made her a customized drawing pad.
To make one, all you need is a drawing pad, scrapbook paper, and Mod Podge. That’s as simple as it gets!
Suraya also enjoys journaling. I found this journal at Target. The cover reads “She’s a dreamer, a doer, a thinker. She sees possibility everywhere.” Doesn’t it just scream inspiration? I felt a chill of excitement when I found it…I thought it was just perfect for Suraya and her new space! Also, doesn’t it go along nicely with the pillow I made her? :)
Last thing I want to share with you is this basket that holds Suraya’s shell collection. This basket used to be red with a sad looking thin red ribbon. Back in February, the girls and I had gone thrift shopping. Suraya found this basket for $.25. For some reason she was drawn to it. Well this basket ended up being handy. Suraya loves her shell collection, and this basket was just perfect to help display them. I spray painted it pink and added a ribbon of fabric scrap and a fabric rosette. Good as new! Suraya’s beloved shells held by her beloved basket;)
So there you have it… Suraya’s side of the room is finally complete! Boy, that play kitchen really helped clean up and organize her space. I love it!
Not only does Suraya love her new space, but it also has motivated her to organize her closet. And she is using her message board. First message that went up is a reminder note to herself. It reads “Get casal”. It took me a while to figure out “casal”… but eventually I figured out that it’s supposed to say “castle”. Hahaha. I’m not sure what she means by “get casal”, but it is her message after all! Hmm, maybe I’ll just have to ask her about it later. :D
As for Susu’s side, she still wants to do her own thing. However, you never know… I just may have a hand in it. ;)
