ORC Reveal! 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea Study Makeover
I am a tad late but I have a gorgeous fun room ORC reveal for you! See how I took a ho hum study and made it a bit more worthy of Captain Nemo! Check out this 20,000 leagues under the sea study makeover.
Greetings! Well, I feel like Cinderella… except I lost my shoe on the way to the ball, but I’m here! I’m Late, shoeless and my dress isn’t ironed but I’m here! 😉 What a whirlwind the last 6 weeks have been! Many thanks to Linda and her One Room Challenge because we now have a gorgeous 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea study makeover!
The study was an easy choice for this challenge. I had promised my hubby that the next project would be to create a wonderful room for him featuring one of his all time favorite books and authors…. “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” by Jules Vern.
I wanted to balance the Disney interpretation and what I read in the book…all on a budget. We had to compromise the design a bit to keep the makeover within reason, unfortunately that meant the ceiling details and the jelly fish will have to wait for a later date.
Ok! Ready to see? Here ya go!

I am so stinkin’ happy with the outcome. The room has gone from drab to fab. Do you remember the before?
It was a Hodge -podge mess and yes that is a glamour shot (lol) on the shelf. Now the room has a beautiful cohesive feel. The hubby is very happy with his study and I am ecstatic that it is now complete.
Stay tuned this week, I will post more details and all the DIY’s that made this makeover possible.
