I'm sitting on my bed and looking very happily around my brand new bedroom. And it only took me all weekend to get it this way.
My walls - sit down if you're a color conservative. Put your head between your knees just in case - are mostly bubblegum pink and one is Granny Smith green. All of the trim, baseboards and crown molding are glossy white. I've rearranged all of my furniture and went "shopping" in other parts of the house. My bed is in a totally different place, I've brought a great old wooden trunk upstairs, added some plants and changed out my bedside tables. When I say it's girly in here, I mean it with all my heart. It feels like a completely new room. And that's a good thing.
All it's going to take is a Shabby Chic type white/pink/green quilt and some curtains over the mini-blinds. I'm thinking sheers, maybe a combo of green and white. I also want to get a little entertainment center to put all of the electronic stuff in. Speaking of Shabby Chic, I have a whole bunch of wonderful vintage decoupage paper that I'm trying to figure out how to use in here. It's all feminine with a capital F. Then, of course, I have to put things on the walls. But that 's the fun part.
This room wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea, but it suits me perfectly right now. It turned out exactly the way I wanted it to. (And out of character? You betcha). It's my bedroom. Mine, mine, mine.
And I absolutely love it.
