Couture

I finally got around to putting up some of my new artwork and getting some of the clutter out of my bedroom. Actually, for once my brother was a big help. He owed me a favour (I towed his busted truck home in the middle of the night a few weeks ago) so I had him come over and haul away my old dinette set and a bunch of other excess furniture, as well as a bunch of old clothes and stuff to be put in storage at my Moms. I can actually walk through my bedroom again, and it feels great!!

Anyway- thought I’d share some of the photos… the lighting isn’t super great and the image quality is piss-poor because I took them with my cell (since I was too lazy to actually upload photos from my camera), and my walls are yellow (I HATE YELLOW WALLS!) but I rent so I’m not going to spend a lot of time or put in a lot of effort to paint. I really can’t wait until I buy a place of my own so that it is worth doing stuff like that.

The desk is actually quite old and something that’s been passed around my family as needed for a while. It used to be brown and ugly so I sanded it down and freshened it up with a few coats of white paint. I actually sold my nearly brand new bedside tables from Ikea (I hated them) and sanded and painted my Mom’s old ones to match the desk. I’ve only done one so far though, so no pics of those or my new crystal bedside lamps, yet. I’m also holding out until I buy some new bedding, which will make it all come together. The crystal lamp on the desk is new though, as is the crystal stemmed mirror… and all of the artwork is new. Oh, and the smaller jewelry box on the desk is not very clear in the photo but it’s got kind of a retro couture thing going on… it’s reflective in the front and has photos of Marilyn Monroe on the top. The last thing that’s new in the photos is the desk chair. I’m not even going to tell you how much it cost me (it makes me a little sad- even though the discount price I got it for was a steal compared to the original price). I got everything at Home Sense- it’s my favourite store and shopping there has turned into a bit of an obsession lately. Oops? Oh well, I am a girl after all!

Oh, and don’t look too closely at the artwork… pretty sure they’re all crooked! Haha! (I am the least handiest person ever!)
