I don't know if I've ever even posted here yet!
So here's a little mini-tour of my shit hole a.k.a. house and home.
A little backround history:
I moved in here last June with my ex, have had 4 different roommates and now it's allll mine. My dad owns it but lives in a different province so I can do pretty much whatever the fuck I want *insert snotty attitude here*. We painted/customised every room except for the shitty bathroom so far because the previous tenants smoked inside for 6 years and the walls were shit. It was haggard beyond beleif. We even replaced the carpet in my old bedroom and by we I mean of course the boy did it.
My friend and I also put on punk shows in my basement and bands from all over the vast country of Canada have played here (www.myspace.com/vernondungeon
) and it's my love. And this is me narcissistically showing it all off.
Hmm now.. where to start...
This is the view to the left when you're sittin' on tha front porch. Right across from the soothing sounds of a train yard.
The view to the right. I live on the same property as a mechanic and next to a tow truck company.
The lush exterior of the front porch which is really the side porch... that's the cleanest it's ever been!
Chillin' on the front steps. Note the log stumps. We have a wood burning furnance and before the ex moved out we loaded up a lifetime supply of wood. They are now "patio furniture" which works since I don't have to worry about them getting destroyed by drunk kids, like everything else has.
Speaking of which... just some of my friends chillin' outside before a show. Oh yeah, we painted the outside trim that bright green, it used to be poo dark green.
Same friends+another rommate at a previous show. Yes, 4 people can accumulate that much garbage, it was disgusting and will never, ever happen again. That "bench" is also gone because it was a little too ghetto for me. It now has "sitting area for n00bs" written on it.
Main entrance welcome signs
It's a box of a house, there aren't any hallways, the living room is semi divided into two rooms with a bedroom off of each one. The third bedroom is off the kitchen as is the bathroom.
The part of the small living room where I make magic. This paint colour is Debbie Travis' "Angry Lemon Yellow". I think we picked it mainly because of its name.
The other small part where my magic materials are stored
Small area where I waste many a wee hour of the morning
My roomate's old couches and the coffee table we reconstructed from a pot-plant-growing table the last tenants left over.
A closeup of the decorations.. most of the posters are from our shows or ones I went to when I was touring with my friends' band this summer.
Technically, the front door and the entrance to my bedroom. The last tenants left that wicker thing too and I've been meaning to spraypaint it ever since I moved in....
They also painted this room so we didn't touch it because painting 5 other ones was enough. It was our computer room but is now my bedroom and I've slept there twice in the last two months...
Onward to the kitchen!
For some reason we have a brand new stove and it's very out of place. I also drink a lot of Tab. And I rarely listen to HIM anymore but Ville is officially the Kitchen God (a feng shui thing) so I can't remove him now.
The top half of my fridge. The things with the red arrows were stencilled. Everything else is a collection from friends/travellers/drunk people/sober me. I cover up the crappy stuff my ex put on there.
Full Frontal Fridge Action!
Kitchen Cupboard Closeup! Yeaahhhh never got around to finishing that because it was a pain in the arse to do each letter individually.
My roommate was in the process of moving out so mind the mess. I'm super short and those cupboards are really freakin' tall so I only use the bottom shelves...
This would be where I would eat if I still cooked food. I sorta had a toy dinosaur theme going on on the windowsill but the cat knocked a bunch of them down.
That's my favorite one.
Bitchin' shower curtain!
There are no walls... we ripped out the linoleum/shitty whatever the hell it was on the walls and just like me, the ex was never good at finishing projects so it's just chillin' like that for now and probably forever. It's only behind the toilet and partially on the wall in front of it.
What a scenic view from my bathroom window!
This was my old bedroom but the colour started to bug me and it was too weird to stay there after the ex moved out. I wish I had some pictures of the leopard print wall paper border, you can kinda see it on the corner of the walls.
My roommate would kill me if I showed the face he was making in this one... it used to be his room until my most recent roommate took over and decorated it as seen in the previous picture.
For some reason this bedroom is right in the middle of the house which I always found odd... it's my favorite colour of them all. It has now turned into a guest room/movie watching lounge.
The cloest has a door on each side! The other one leads to the living room (of course) and it's like a secret little passageway!
And lastly, the basement.
We can get up to 100 people coming in/out of there, I want to decorate it more but it'll probably be a futile project.
AAAND my selfish time is over.. ..
