I don't currently have a whole lot to write about, because my life has been rather dull the last few days (going back to work is never fun after a few days off - and I am already back onto my run of days working. And now, I am basically just counting down until my eleven-day vacation (which starts in fifteen days, if anyone wants to count along with me).
The last week has seen me working on my room, though! When I got back from vacation, I switched which bedroom I was sleeping in. I had been in the smallest room in the house (something like 6.5'x6.5'), which was just big enough for my bed and a nightstand. Making the bed was near impossible, since two of the corners of the bed were in two of the corners of the room. I liked it because it meant that I could use the bigger room as my dressing room/workout room/room for all of my random stuff. I decided, though, that I wanted the slightly bigger room (about 8.5'x8.5') and wanted to make it cute and comfortable. It is still a work in progress, but I figured I would share some photos of how it's coming!
|My cute new shelves (Ikea!) with my cute new vases (also Ikea!) and some flowers (Dollar Tree) with my absolute favorite pictures ever of my nephew and niece from when they were considerably smaller than they are now. I am going to add more stuff up there, and probably take these pictures down and replace them with 5x7's and feature all three of the kids. But for now, I needed placeholders. The shelves look crooked, but they aren't. The ceiling is slanted, and created a great optical illusion (and I'm not debating whether I should have hung the shelves differently).|
Tomorrow I am heading to Ikea. Going to pick up a few more mirrors, and see what other stuff I can find. I need a few frames for some weirdly sized pictures that I have. I also want a full-length mirror for the back of my bedroom door (but that may wait until I make a Wal-Mart run). And I want to get paper lantern type lights to hang from the ceiling above the bed. I think I finally figured out how to install them, so I am hoping to find ones in colors to coordinate with the room. Fingers are crossed!
