I'm excited to be a part of the UU competition this year and for there to be a panel of judges, although, I do not envy what they will go through in May.
This year, I plan on starting with a new structure, instead of a rehab. I will be using HBS's Home Depot Imagination House to start with.
As many of you may know, I love to work in miniature to try out designs that I love,but probably couldn't pull off in my rental without... well, they just wouldn't happen.
There are a few things that didn't happen in the last build that I would like to try to incorporate into this one.... like, the string lights.
I love IKEA furniture, so we might see some of that.
Last years entry featured a living room, a huge bathroom, a library, a cluttered attic and a bedroom.
This year, I want to try a few different things. Expect a full kitchen with small dining area, a sophisticated man cave, two bedrooms (adult and teenage girl), and a craft room. I may try to fit a bathroom in there, but not sure if there will be room.
I have great ideas for bright colors, classic greys, beautiful wood tones and subway tiles. In real life, I love upcycling random things to furniture, a coat of spray paint to renew an old dresser, a switch of fabrics to breathe new life into a chair.... Such as this one, below. It used to be a horrid red leather.
I plan to do a lot of this to the items in the Imagination House. :)
I hope you are as excited as I am! I will be pulling plans together for this over the next few months, but won't officially start it until the middle of December. I am currently working on my entry for the Greenleaf Spring Fling and my entry for the HBS Creatin Contest.
And the spring fling reveal will be coming up soon!
