Hey, It's Alex.
You may remember my old rooms,
the red, crazily crowded room
or my dark, army green room
I've moved again.
I'm renting a room at a house
with some very friendly people.
I decided to paint the walls a dark gray
called "Obsidian Glass".
The ceiling is a lighter gray,
...to add some contrast.
Here's "walk-in" view:
This room is much larger than any I've ever had before.
I'm trying to be more simplistic.
I hardly put anything up on the walls.
Behind the tall curtains is an arcadian door
that leads to my outdoor patio/balcony.
Oh, and yes, those are mannequins.
I love it here.
(Turning clockwise from the door)
The infamous shelf that everyone begs for a tutorial.
This is the most cluttered item in my room.
It's mostly filled with cameras that I collect.
This is my little mini-studio area.
I made the backdrops.
Bought some felt from JoAnn's,
and stapled them onto wooden dowel rods from Home Depot.
I also used some big hooks to support the dowels.
When I want to take some photos,
I just push forward my sofa,
(i installed wheels under my sofa)
pull down desired color,
set up the lights, and I'm ready.
For the curious...
I shoot with a Canon 30D.
My little entertainment corner.
Computer and Music.
I made the desk.
Soon, I hope to build a nice corner desk,
so I can have more "table room",
this way I can have a designated sewing station.
I hate using sewing machines on the floor.
I still have my sofa,
which I reupholstered myself.
Also, still the most comfortable bed.... ever!
Oh, and for those wondering,
that's a large blacklight above the bed.
The TV is nothing special.
I'm getting a very nice "upgrade" very shortly. Aha.
I do, however, have a very nice stereo system.
Under the TV is a 185 gallon terrarium that I made myself.
It cost me about $80 to make.
It's so amazing.
It houses three of my fairly large ball python snakes.
Spun, Salem, and Sybil. I love them.
That's it for now.
Let me know what you think.
