Hello, everyone! Here's my first post, and it's a doozie as far as getting things done go.
So after a lifetime of neutral colors on walls, me and my boyfriend are finally in an apartment we can paint. We did the dining room a couple months after we moved in but since it was painted BRIGHT RED it took approximately a bajillion coats of paint and we were so exhausted after we finished that we decided to put off painting the bedroom for a little while.
That "little while" turned out to be two years, but on Sunday, the bedroom finally got painted. My friend Dani came over and helped, so it went pretty fast. It's still a little patchy, but I'm okay with that. It adds a little dimension to the paint. ^_^
We still have some art that needs to go up on the walls, and after one more trip to Ikea we'll have some cabinets and a new sewing table where the current table and shelf are... But it's painted! It doesn't look like a dorm room anymore! I'm so happy and proud and grown-up feeling.
As a bonus, here's a photo of the mobile I made in high school for a friend of the family, after it fell to the floor and broke two years ago and I disassembled it and finally got around to installing it as an art piece on her wall. In light of its history, I have named it Phoenix.
So, yeah. I'm feeling accomplished right now. ^_^
