Months ago, in an attempt to create a little haven for myself, I'd rendered our middle bedroom unusable. I had ripped out the old carpeting, and punched a hole in the wall, and then got stuck on some electrical work, and left it for months and months.

Until this weekend. My man went to NYC for the weekend, and I took the chance to finish what I'd started.

Here are the before shots... It's not in colour, but then again, there was no colour in that room to begin with so...

And here are the after shots:

Some details:

Once it was all done, I was even surprised at how girlie it had turned out. I was worried about my man's reaction, but he's just happy that I have found a spot in the house that's just for me.

There are still a couple of things left to do, like reupholster the reading chair and trim out the closet door, but it's such a difference from how it was, and I absolutely love it!!

I wish I had a space of my own decicated just to working on my projects. Anyway, about yours: I love the green paint colour and the black and white frame.

I love it all!! That rug is beautiful and I love the green colour.  It looks so neat and organised (what I aspire to!). A great achievement, well done for finishing it!

I love the white frames with black words. Did you make them? If not, where did you get them? Very cool.

I love that colour! I always end up choosing white, off white or tan ... I feel so boring  Embarrassed
Anywho I think it looks lovely, and it doesn't look too girly ... it looks clean and sweet.

Thanks for the comments!!

The frames belong to my boyfriend. They're old windows that he found somewhere, and then he bought those rub on letters (I forget what they're called) and transferred them pretty randomly on both frames.

One of the window panes is cracked, but I think it adds to the effect.
