What a week!! I was on vacation and on Monday I started cleaning out my room. I have collected a lot of junk in 30 years and it took 2 days to get it out of my room. No lie. Wednesday I primed, Thursday I painted. Friday I applied a second coat on some portions of the wall, and I also started steam cleaning the carpet. Saturday I did the other half of the carpet and went to Ikea. For what? A new bed and dresser! Sunday I assembled everything and right now I'm taking a bit of a break before I organize all my shit and move it all back into my room. LOL And all my books. I'm also going to weed through all my books and I can see possibly giving some away. So stay tuned for that.
I wanted a new bed because a)I needed a new mattress and b)Max is getting on in years and my bed was pretty high. I was worried about his legs! So I got a lower platform bed with a firmer mattress.
Starting to move stuff back into my room today, it was like playing musical chairs. First of all, I had a ton of bookshelves. I decided to leave two out. They are big ones, so I'm going to need to weed out a lot of books. haha
Ok, pictures. My walls previously were a light (almost white) gray. Blech. I went with my favorite colour: purple. In two shades.
This first pic is just to show the two different shades. Light and dark. LOL You can see my junk piled up right outside my bedroom door.
That shelf thingy goes all the way around my room so I painted the top lighter. The wall directly opposite the one shown is almost all light purple because that shelf cuts off about a quarter way. I'm very pleased with my colour choices.
Here's a picture of Max and She-Ra checking out their new bed. They like it!
My room is still a mess, so I'll be getting it in order the rest of the week.
Because I was soooo busy, I did not read, I only posted one review (Falls Chance Ranch) and I didn't buy ANY books.
