I redid my bedroom 6 months or so ago, but it's always such a mess that I never got around to taking photos of it. So, after a cleaning frenzy last weekend, here it is.
After years of living in a cave (navy blue walls and a twin sized matress on the floor to save space) I decided it was time for a more grown up room.
My room is tiny (9'X12') and very hard to take pictures of. My bed takes up most of my room, with only two feet or so on either side of it, but i love it.
It's all very symetrical, with my bed being right under my window. there was really no other place to put a double bed without it looking weird. And I don't know if you can notice... but i use the swirly bits on my head board to hold my curtains back
mounting my guitar on my wall was the best idea ever, it's up out of the way (but still in my face, so i'll actually pick it up and use it) and it's like instant art! I just love the colour of it popping off my wall colour. (eek! my doggy has scary demon eyes in this one!)
the painting on my wall is a copy of Starry Night I did for my art class (We were studying art history, were forced to reproduce a famous work of art)
and the other corner of my room, with my dresser, mirror etc. you can't really tell from the picture, but I actually only have about a foot of space from the corner of my bed to the corner of my dresser... it's a small squeeze.
You can just barely see my floor in this one. But when i was a kid we had to rip up my carpet because of allergies and with a lack of funds, my parents ended up just sanding down and staining the basic knotty tounge and groove floor boards that houses are built with... my parents hate it and keep tring to convince me to change it, but i think it's charming and matches my endtables, even if there are holes where you can actually drop stuff down to the ceiling of the floor below...
Re-doing my room is the best thing i've done. I never get sick of the colour and could spend forever in here, it's so peaceful and relaxing...well, at least when it's clean.
