One Small Space, Two Functions: {Sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart}

As a BHG Stylemaker, I am honored to work with this amazing brand sharing their stylish and affordable line of home products from Walmart! As always, any product reviews or opinions are honest feedback from my personal experience.  This post contains affiliate links to Walmart, which means the brand rewards me with a small commission for any sale resulting from a link click through on my blog! Thanks so much for your continued support!

Hey, guys!  I am so excited to share this project with you. It was something that I should've done a long time ago, but it took being at home for 3 months to make it a priority.  I think the outcome shows what a huge impact just a few changes can make in a small space.  With the help of a few new things from the Better Homes & Gardens line at Walmart,  my home office sitting area now doubles as a small home gym area.  I absolutely love the way it turned out.  

There were just a few things I needed to transform this space.  A large mirror, a durable area rug and a storage space that would hide all my workout gear!  The Better Homes & Gardens line at Walmart had everything I needed and their reasonable prices worked well with my budget. 

I went with a beautiful, but durable, outdoor rug for this space.  The great thing about this rug is I can take it outside and hose it down if need be.  The colors and pattern go perfectly with the other furniture and decor I already had in this space.

I also purchased this gorgeous, tufted storage ottoman for style and functionality.  It is a great place to store all my workout gear and can be easily moved out of the way when it is time to work out.  The tufting and nail-head trim add interest to the space and the size was perfect!  I absolutely love the way it looks in this room!

Cozy, textured pillows keep the room looking warm and inviting!  I have a feeling I might spend more time relaxing in this space than working out! 

The last big item I added is leaning mirror. The metal, rivet details tie in well with the nail-head trim on my ottoman and chairs and I love the barnwood color finish.

Another bonus to adding the mirror is that it makes the space look a lot bigger!

I kept the decor simple since it will be moved frequently.  The galvanized tray makes it simple to move when I need to access my weights!  The cute wood and ceramic pieces are actually oil diffusers and keep the room smelling wonderful!  I added a candle holder I already had to complete the look.  Simple accessories can make a huge difference!

Since I think every room needs a natural touch, I brought in a pretty planter and fern.  I love the terrazzo design  on the planter and the colors are perfect in here!

Now the room is complete and functions as both a little workout area and an office sitting area, I feel like I will use it so much more!  Jut proof you do not have to have a huge space to make a big impact...sometimes you just have to get creative! 

Now I have no excuse to skip a workout...

Having such a pretty space to be in will hopefully keep me motivated to get my workouts in!

I am so glad I got the project completed and this room functions as so much more than my office now.  Everything I added goes so well with the desk area in this space, too!

Don't be discouraged if you live in a smaller home or have a small area in your room that is unused...you will be surprised at what you can achieve by adding a few new items that fit your needs! Always work with the space you have and make the most if it!  I highly recommend checking out the Better Homes & Gardens line at Walmart for your next project!
