Edited pictures of other things from my “medical theme” will go up tomorrow evening. My stomach is full and my heart is happy from the party and being with family and friends! I have another busy summer week up ahead but the posts should be more regular as I get into a routine after my trips are over. I hope everyone’s weekend is going well. And as promised, here is the Pinterest fail version of what I posted about yesterday.
Nailed it! Not. Special thanks to my mama and my sisters for helping prep for the party.
I’m trying to think of a clever name for the study room that will become my office during medical school but nothing has hit me yet. Here it is! The official before pictures. You’ll see it evolve more and more starting when I get back to Tulsa after graduation (10 days 21 hours and 39 minutes from now), but who’s counting?
Right now the room serves as a guest bedroom, game room, craft room, and storage closet. First order of business will be to get rid of the junk (including the pac man machine) and condense the closet. Next, we will restore, build, or buy furniture and put my desk in and make it functional as an office. It will still serve as a guest bedroom when my girls come to visit! So the bed stays. Lastly will be setting the mood and prettying it up to be an inspiring, productive space for use throughout medical school!
I have big plans for this room. I’m going with a soft color palate of teal and beige with pops of salmon. I’m looking for a lot of natural textiles like raw wood, burlap, sea glass and plant-y things. The bedspread, I want neutral and vintage. Lamps, lights, and chair can be sort of industrial. The art I want to be animal, plant or anatomy/medical inspired. I also want to incorporate a comfortable reading area with twinkle lights somehow. I can’t wait to see how it turns out and update you guys on the process. *A lot of these images (especially paint colors) I got from Young House Love. The sawhorse desk is something I made. I found the vintage medical posters on pinterest. Other places I looked grabbed pictures from include Ikea, Target, West Elm, and Etsy. If you need a specific source let me know! I’m not trying to copy someone else without crediting them.
Its a good feeling- this whole ‘I’m-already-in-medical-school-so-I-can-kind-of-relax’ thing. But I’ve sort of turned into the kind of student that pins things on Pinterest and watches Grey’s Anatomy, and not the kind of student that got into medical school. So, oops. Hopefully that switch will turn back on when I need it to. But for now, I’m eating donettes and dreaming of “command center” ideas to put in my med school study room. Tomorrow I will work diligently on my research project. And Saturday I will be shopping with my nieces and not thinking at all about everything I have to do. You win some, you lose some.
