This is sort of a continuation of my last post, Room Makeover: A Personal Touch. So check that out first, if you want. Since I first left for England for university, before I even began this blog, I've kept little things. When I started, I thought I might scrapbook them or something, but turns out … Continue reading My Trinket Wall
When I last updated you guys on my room at my mom's, it was in this post. Well, I've made a few changes since, and I think this is as close to done as it'll ever get. And you know what? I like it. For my workspace, I got my desk from Ikea during their … Continue reading Room Makeover: A Personal Touch
I recently read a great article "Minimalism is Just Another Boring Product Wealthy People Can Buy" which raised some great points about how minimalism and nice decor are out of reach for most people, and it got me thinking. The rooms and dorm rooms I've decorated over the last five years, could I have done … Continue reading Room Makeovers Without Money
This is long overdue. It took so long, in fact, that yet another piece for my room arrived today and I considered waiting a bit longer until it was installed to do an entire room reveal. I decided not to. So let's get to it. Ta-daa! Here we have my new (as of weeks ago) … Continue reading Styling a Bookshelf
This post will mostly be a simple gallery of what my room looked like right before I left. I still haven't got art on the walls and the desk is missing a drawer because Ikea gave us the wrong screws (they screwed us, hehe), but other than those few things, I'm pretty happy with it. … Continue reading An Incomplete Room Tour
Today was a big day. My room looks more like a bedroom and less like a construction site than it has in months. Jeez. Months. Has it really taken me that long? Nonetheless, I did what I wanted to do before I leave again for England, and tonight I will be able to reap my … Continue reading A Brief History of My Room
Previously, on My Room... Last August, I was presented with a new bedroom and the challenge of decorating it within a budget and a simple set of rules: I can't use black paint, I can't replace the carpet, and I have to do all my own painting. I set fourth with an ambitious plan and … Continue reading My Room So Far…
Every three months, I redecorate my space somehow. I can't help it, it just drives me up the wall staying in the same space for too long. I haven't had to worry about that for the past few years, now. I went off to university for three months, that was a room change. Then I … Continue reading The Three-Month Re-Decoration
While big and clunky works for some bedrooms, it's not ideal for an already small bedroom like mine.
As I've stated in past posts, my room isn't as big as I'm used to. It's not tiny, but it's the smallest room in the house and I decided to squeeze a double bed into it. It was manageable, but uncomfortable. Commonly overlooked in tight spaces are closet doors. Mine were bi-fold, nothing special. They … Continue reading Closet Doors: Help or Hindrance?
