I've been meaning to post this for the longest time, and now that I going to have to move Sad I thought "now or never". Oh, and my room is almost never this neat (i suggest not opening the closets or looking under the bed)Now, Here is my indescribable bedroom

my door

the form in the corner was my moms when she was a teenager. the  cat (the fat  blob of fur) match perfectly with the rest of the room.

My great grandfather made the bed and my great grandmother made the comforter.

you can see the corner of my Breakfast Club poster on the wall. I painted the jewelry box, and the I got license plates and records at a thrift store a while back

my lovely sewing machine, and some of the monuments of my childhood ( and I'm not talking about the elmo and carebear, i got those this year Smiley )

my computer playing the avenue q soundtrack

When I move I'm going to have to decorate a new room. So, if anyone has any paint color suggestions, decorating ideas, etc, I would much appreciate them. I have a very eclectic style so ideas are always welcome!

I'm gonna be moving sometime in January or February. My mom and dad are having a house built, so I too will have a whole new room to decorate and luckily enough, a bigger one too. I will however be sharing it with my son until my brother's room gets built in the basement (mom and dad figured that it'd be cheaper to build that room themselves). And you know what? Your room just inspired me! Two of my favorite colors, blue and black. So I think I may just have to do that.

The comforter and the built in desk are my favorites.

I just love the antique bed juxtaposed with all of the bright and crazy colors - especially that BEAUTIFUL bedspread and the gorgeous wall color. I also love your built in white cabinetry, I would never want to move if I had a room with that feature (and a yellow top!)

Awesome room and that built in desk is indeed fantastic!  Do you remember what color you painted the wall?
