Ignore all the weird stripes and such on the photos, i dont know what happened.. but the paint doesnt look like that! lol
Well since I am home from my two years of travelling, and, well after two years of travel volunteering I don'thave enough money to rent a place, I am stuck at home with the folks, and commuting.. so I decided in order to survive I must have a new room ;p
Plus, all my new souvenirs and things from Africa needed somewhere to fit in! Theres some stuff I didn't get photos of, my art wall, that has a few paintings, prints, photographs, etc. i also didnt get a close up of my mask.. and the table wasnt in the room yet.. anyway..
The writing is Arabic for Freedom. This cupboard was always in my room but used to be green/blue with stars/moons.. We painted it pale yellow and then used th color of the walls to sponge on top of it..the painting i bought while in St. Maarten.
Above the door is my batik wall hanging. The door was a poem written by a Ghanaian artist.
my photos, new chair and my drum..
The best part is the cork board and you can hardly see it! I took an old fuzzy/sparkly red sweater that was hideous(one of those sweaters that makes even an 80lb girl look fat) and used double sided tape to hold it on, and then pushed the edges under the edges.. sooo amazing!(the corkobard was peeling and ugly, so it was on its way to the trash)
for some reason, the best parts are hidden or i didn't take a picture of them!
but i love it.. and the colour names(foro some reason i love colour names!) were very fitting... "djembe" & "flamenco red"
