FINALLY A Room Tour

Hey Internet! This is my 101th post!!!! I was trying to keep track and make a big to-do about 100, but 101 will have to do! Yay blogging!!! Anyway, I figured what better way to celebrate than posting something I promised youALMOST A YEAR AGO? I FINALLY got my life together enough to bring you pictures of my room! Yay!

Now, this isn’t a design blog. I have no “before” pictures and I know nothing of lighting ect., so I’m sure that some of you could take better room pictures. But let’s be honest – if you are looking for perfection you came to the WRONG place.

Now – This room makeover. Basically when I got home from college I realized that my room really did not fit my personality anymore. But more than that I was just TIRED of it. I have a real problem with that. I will paint a room and decorate and a few years later I am sick of looking at everything. Then I start pinning wall color ideas, and then we are all in trouble (by “we” I mean me, my mom, and Marcie because she usually gets conned into helping).

So last year when I started to get antsy I picked out a color pallet I love – gray, teal, coral and yellow. I bought some paint and the rest is history! I went with 3 gray walls, a teal wall, a coral closet (I took my closet doors off and painted the inside of my closet – I LOVE IT. I get to look at my pretties whenever I want. On the down side, I can’t stuff a bunch of stuff in my closet and pretend that my room is clean, so do this at your own risk). Most of the furniture I had or got at garage sales, but my window seat and bed were birthday and Christmas presents (Thanks parents!).

I really love the space I’ve created and this is one of the first times in my life where I spend a majority of my time in my room AND the first time since I was rather young that my room does not have a TV. And I really don’t miss it (which is kind of crazy for me).

So, lets get to the pictures shall we?

This bed-side shelf used to hold SO MANY MAGAZINES! Now it holds significantly less - but still a lot of magazines.

I keep (some of) my nail polish next to my bed. I like to have it close to me. Also, I framed my friend Emma's passport picture and keep it next to my bed because it is AWESOME. She looks so mean.
