Or, what happens when I go on a painting and crafting frenzy. Really, apartment therapy and DIY goodness was the goal of my holiday break and I think it was a task well done. Some of you gentle readers may recall last year’s post on moving out and moving in… and all the IKEA fun that ensued. Well, I’m not planning on moving anytime within the foreseeable future, so some decorating and freshening up was in order. My color scheme: Valspar paints in Exaltation, Paramount White, and Brushed Lavender.
This whole project required more paint than I imagined, but that was due to the highly porous nature of my walls, rather than the actual size of the rooms oh well, work with what you can.
It’s small and a bit cluttered (a bit? ha!) but it’s full of comforts, books, and kitty cat love [note: kitty cat rules all. just look at all those cat toys… and by cat toys, I mean random junk he enjoys playing with in the middle of the night].
Little things everywhere…
My kitchen counter still needs work, but at least I have a table now and can shift stuff around.
I’ve been painting stuff I already owned and adding personal touches on the cheap to perk up the decorating, which led to a round of Sharpie-inspired crafting. The & is on the door to my tiny linen closet, while the G hangs outside my bedroom door.
Don’t mind the off-centeredness of the type in the framed quotes, I’ve never been known for managing straight lines while drawing.
My writing and reading corners are both in my bedroom (it’s not a short desk, my bed is just ridiculously tall).
Yes, that is an ancient iPod from many moons ago atop the shelf. I’m cheap and careful with my stuffs.
