If you’ve been following my blog you’ll know that the past month or so I’ve been updating what I already updated last September. I’ve been calling the room the guest/craft/reading room. From today forward I think I’ll just call it my woman cave. That’s what my husband calls it. I also explained in a previous post that I have to live in the change for a bit to know if there is a need for more change. In the case of the woman cave it does.
I originally wanted the room to be predominately black, white and yellow. The loveseat/hide-a-bed is a deep turquoise and needed to stay in the room for guest purposes. I think that decison influenced/persuaded me to incorporate to much of the turquise color in the room. That, plus a few other little items are what I am changing. Last September I painted the walls a bright sunny yellow and I still am hapy with that choice. I’ve always loved black and white; plain, together, patterned, whatever. But that’s what I’m adding more of. So far I’ve updated the dresser and desk chair.
Now I get to deal with the desk which isn’t really a desk. Did I mention I’m trying to do this on the cheap? The desk is really two stacked modular cubes previously purchased at Michaels on each end with a board across the top. Not great, but it works for my needs right now and hey, did I say cheap! I wanted a bit more than the plain white board on top look so I added contact paper to give it a granite type look.
Not bad, right? And the great thing about the contact paper is I can easily remobe it any time I want! Here’s the before and after.

B-T-W, the yellow pen containers, $1.00 each at the Dollar Store. Have you done any “cheap” decorating lately?
