Bob and Judy Curry are celebrating their 43rd wedding anniversary, and since they are now retired, they have the freedom to do some of the things they’ve always wanted to do. Judy has been an artist for some time, and now she has the time to focus on her passion. Since their spare bedroom was going to be used for a variety of purposes, from guest room to office, Judy needed a craft space where she could store her supplies and have a place to paint. Enter the IKEA Home Tour Squad!
The Squad was tasked with transforming the spare bedroom into a craft room, office, and space for Judy’s grandchildren to stay when they visit. The Squad updated the room with two bookcases from the HEMNES series, giving Bob a place to use his laptop and giving Judy a place to store her art supplies. The Squad also added a HOLMSUND sofa bed to the room so the grandchildren would have a place to sleep when they visit. The Squad also installed a STENSTORP kitchen cart and a GRUNDTAL rail system to give Judy a taller work surface for painting, as well as additional storage for her art supplies. With the addition of the cart and rail system, Judy now had the perfect set up for her craft room.
The Squad also added several decorative pieces to help make the room more inviting and create a bright and cheerful space. To top it off, the Squad added a gallery wall on one wall of the room, featuring some of Judy’s art pieces. This gave the room a personal touch and helped to make it truly Judy’s space. The addition of the gallery wall also made the room feel more like a home, instead of just a spare bedroom.
At the end of the transformation, Bob and Judy were overjoyed with the results. They now have a multifunctional craft room, office, and guest room all in one. Judy now has a space of her own to focus on her painting and create some beautiful art. Bob also now has a place to work from home and a comfortable space for their grandchildren to stay when they visit. The IKEA Home Tour Squad had successfully transformed the Curry’s spare bedroom into a multifunctional space for the entire family to enjoy.
