 Hi I thought I would jump in again! I have been talking about cleaning my bedroom for like 2 years. The bottom of my closet was overflowing with my yarn and fabric stash. I had tons of books to get rid of and clothes and crap Everywhere. I just decided one day last month to tackle it. First I took tons of stuff to the consignment store and organized my stash. It was amazing that I had room for all my yarn once it was put away well. Then we had to take the ugly wallpaper down...Scary but had to be done. The redecorating Gods were smiling on me and the wallpaper came off in huge sheets. Then we painted a tan color and followed with a burnt umber colorwash. This was our first time faux finishing so we watched a ton of stuff about it on YouTube. Anyway I was amazed it looked so good for our first try. We hung up the hubby's guitars and I got some cheap posters on line. I found the duvet cover in the back of my closet, I had bought it for 12 bucks at Kohl's! That and the tapestry was the inspiration for the room. I'm just happy its not a mess anymore. We have kept it clean....so far. I am kinda a messy person and I like to make piles of stuff. Thanks for checking it out!!!!

Before!!! The space behind the bed is FULL of clothes, yarn and my long lost crochet books. Stuff would fall on us when we were uhhhh sleeping Wink

This is clean and I almost stopped there but decided it was time to stop talking about redecorating and just do it.

This is the cleanest my room has ever been in my entire life.

Good shot of the colorwash and my hubbys guitars

And lastly the inspiration!

Wow I really like how your walls turned out!

Why do you have the bed at an angle? don't you have a whole unusable corner behind the headboard now? Wasted space or easy corners to throw/hide stuff in?

This is not my room, but I know personally the more floor space I have, the more mess I leave around and the longer it takes to clean up, so in my opinion having the bed at an angle is a great idea to keep mess away!

The new room looks really gorgeous, very "interior design" but with enough personal stuff to not look like a hotel room with the guitars and such Smiley

I like penguins, stars, rainbows and blue.
If your project has any of these, don't be surprised to see me post in it! Cheesy

Thanks Guys!  We put our bed at an angle because we have a pretty large room and I really like how it looks. It was a mess back there before we cleaned but its a goal to keep it clean. Right now we have some old electronic equipment hiding.  The paint on the walls is Valspar Colorwash from Lowe's. Valspar has a little colorwash demo on their website but we learned more from searching colorwash on YouTube.  We bought base color about $21, glaze $13, colorwash brush $7 and used some old tee shirts. It was very easy and we had so much fun. I think anybody should try it and it really was not that expensive to do. They have quite a few colors of glaze to choose from and you pick any color of paint you want. You don't have to buy the valspar base color but I was antsy and wanted it right then or I would have gone for 12 dollar walmart paint lol.

Some awesome transformations here! I had my room somewhat cleaned after I moved in, but I couldn't find anything. And then school started back up again and I just started tossing stuff everywhere (no time to organize I kept telling myself) well, now I can barely move in here and I gotta do something! So I am posting a before photo to hopefully motivate myself.

Proof this room was at one time clean:

And how it was a few days ago:

It looks much better now, but I have to actually work at my art desk to finish a project that is due on Tuesday at 8am O.O I am probably not going to sleep for the next 48 hours. And it will probably be really messy again soon >.> crafts class can do that to a room. Am I the only person that procrastinates by cleaning? When I have a paper due my room/home is the cleanest it has ever been  Roll Eyes
