I've been working on redecorating my room pretty well since I moved in with Angie, but because I get so distracted by flashy things and my mind changes with ever TLC home improvement show I watch, it took me forever to settle on an idea, but finally I stuck with my guns!
My room is a sky blue color, so I decided black and white was the way to go, so as to not distract from the cool color my room already was (plus I was way too lazy to paint it myself even if I wanted too!) and maybe also partly due to my increasing interest in zebra print and the damask pattern that is so popular these days.
I spent hours searching eBay, every time I went to Ross, or Target I checked things out and collected little doodads, the last few months I even checked out Home Depot and Lowes (for the first time ever mind you) as well as a few smaller shops around town so I could finally put it all together. Let me tell you ladies, I do not know how some of you decorate an entire house, I would go mad.... to many decisions, too many choices, too small of a budget! A person could spend a small fortune on decor if they are not careful, holy crap, some of the most useless things are CRAZY expensive, but I digress!
I kind of got inspired by stores like Forever 21, and Closet Space (a small store in moses) hence a lot of the mannequin like lady figures, and I decided a splash of hot pink here and there wouldn't hurt either!
Here I give you the finished product (sorry no before and after!)
I also went a little vinyl crazy, Above you'll notice the dress vinyl, my headboard is a vinyl sticker, as well as floral motif in the corners, it is probably my most favorite way to decorate a wall! Because it's easy and it looks SWEET!
I should warn you I attempted to hang my zebra mirror myself, which explains why it's a little off, and perhaps it might stay that way, because I've made no attempt to fix it, but I just wanted you to know... that I know, so don't judge!
Also you might remember my friend Joe (the one who pranked my car?) well to repent of his actions he became my handyman for the week, because not only did he hook up and hang my iron wrought mini chandelier, but.........
He also helped me transform this........
It only took about 8 cans of spray paint, and three trips to home depot to find the right sized handles, but I think it came together nicely!
Coupled with some of the trinkets I've had and been collecting, I ended up being pretty excited about how it all just matched up.
PS... you should also relish it, because this may be the cleanest you'll ever see my room!
SO yeah, it took forever, but I'm happy it was finally accomplished, and I'm proud of how it looks! Yay for finally being decisive and sticking with something!
Stay tuned for more evidence of Emily growing up and doing big girl stuff!
