Roommates Strike Out

****If you are seeing this content on please be advised it is there without permission! is the OFFICIAL and only site I publish on!***

Some of you may remember a couple years ago when I painted the third bedroom in my house with stripes for a much desired office. Financially I couldn't support not having another roommate because I was still in college. Well 6 months after graduation and with having a full-time job I can finally do it. Plus another roommate would probably make me lose my marbles.

Not good.

My current roommate has the room set up like this:

After the age of 15 I feel like teddy bears on the bed is kinda weird. But hey, that's just me. I also noticed that she has all of her wall hangings hung up in a bizarre mishmash which means there is likely going to be a number of nail holes and tack holes in the walls....

Since I no longer have any more of the two colors that originally went into the stripes I have decided that they need to be redone anyway. Thankfully they are already started so it won't be nearly as hard as it was the first time. I am going to start looking at colors to get an idea of what I want to go with.

So Office/Guest Room To-Do List:

  • Find a full-sized guest bed
  • Build desk for under window 
  • Repair walls/repaint stripes
  • Create awesome storage solutions 
  • Fix door/paint door/do something with the door
  • DIY some wall decor
If you have any other tips or ideas for creating a good combination space in here please let me know! It will be a bit before I can get all the furniture and such that I want in there so I am open to suggestions!


  1. I'm so excited that you get your own office again! I can't wait to see what you do! I'm glad you are going to keep stripes on the walls even though you have to repaint them. I love striped walls!


I'd love to hear from you!
