Absence...

I've been a bit absent from this space this week.  But it's for a good reason...
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!
I decided that I was only going to bring things back into my room that I actually use, which means my once loaded bookshelves have gone from two to one very bare one.  I really like the clean look of it so far, and I gave AJ permission to make me give even more books away, so I'm going to be getting rid of quite a few more.
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!

  3. Your room is absolutely beautiful. I am in the process of re-painting my apartment too. I'm starting with the hallway (while I sell of furniture and other bits from the main rooms) and will then make my way into the main rooms. It takes a long time with kids around !! But so worth it, my walls are looking so fresh. Isn't it amazing what a lick of paint can do !!
