AJ and I have been hard at work changing my purple-and-yellow-picked-out-in-middle-school-and-totally-outgrown room into the "adult" bedroom I've envisioned since I moved home from college two years ago. His Christmas gift to me was to paint my room (he wins the best boyfriend ever award), and I love doing anything myself, so I offered to help. So we've been hard at work since Sunday night moving furniture, painting, replacing outlets, and moving and rearranging again. We've still got to do my walk-in closet and hang some things on the walls, and organize some more, but we're on our way!
If you want to catch a glimpse of what my room looked like before, check out my room tour. Unfortunately, I don't really have any sweeping shots of the entire room, but you can at least see the light yellow walls.
And here's just a sneak peek at my new room! Once everything is in and just how I want it, I'll do a full room tour, but here are some little things that have fallen into place already that I love!
My aunt and uncle dropped off a few pieces of furniture for me the other day, and this little table was among them. It turns out that it's perfect for my records! The table I used to have my record player on just doesn't really fit...it was big and bulky and didn't have a place for my records. This little phone table is perfect. I have some DIY upcycle ideas for it, which will have to wait for warmer weather, but in the meantime, I replaced the old wooden drawer knob with this pretty one that I found at Home Depot and spray painted white.
AJ's mom gave me these cute birds on a wire photo clips for Christmas. Perfect for displaying instagram prints from PostalPix!
My room has this little alcove with a half-wall that overlooks our foyer. I've never had my bed in that area before, but decided to put it there and I absolutely LOVE it.
Can't wait to share more photos with you!
