Localise youth room at Sophia House – update

Well friends it’s been a crazy week. The Localise youth room project for Sophia Housing I’ve been working on is finishing tomorrow! This week was full of blagging, running, finalizing flooring, surprise paint colours, dripping, dropping, standing on wobbly ladders, the fastest trip I’ve ever taken to IKEA {entire shop in 25 minutes}, and help from some awesome students and volunteers. 
Much like an operation transformation, the youth room in Sophia House will be made from an empty shell of a room, to somewhere for young teens to call their own. From start to finish, all tomorrow. For now, I will give you a sneaky glimpse on an exciting feature I’ve been working on; the drip wall. It has turned out pretty ace, if I may be so bold. Here are some progress pictures … 

… I finished it today and aside from a couple of hairy moments when we first started, it turned out pretty swish. Not to mention it was a solid excuse to mess around with paint and get it just about everywhere. Including my hair. 
But for now, I’m going to save my energy for tomorrow when it all kicks off! Where my organization and interior design skills will be put to the test. So excited to see it all finally be put together – let the craziness begin.
TGIF. xx A
