I have decided that after 11 years of having my bedroom as it is I decided, pretty much in the space of day, that I had had enough and HAD to redecorate. It’s currently painted orange and red (yes I know not the smartest idea) as 10 year old me thought it was brilliant.
Admittedly I have loved those colours for years but I have always had on of issues with sleep and after a few nights of struggling to switch off I started thinking that some calmer colours might help this. I’m going for a turquoise-y blue.
So I have spent the last couple of weeks boxing up my stuff and binning a ton of stuff. I used to be pretty hoarder like especially in my teens where I wouldn’t throw anything away. While clearing I found a empty chocolate box from a gift my mum bought me for Valentines day when I was around 15. It made me happy at the time so I kept it. As you can imagine my room was packed (even I was shocked as I started uncovering it all). So far I have managed to throw out, recycle, charity box over 14 bin bags worth of stuff.
On top of this my room was never actually finished in the first place so I will have to get new skirting and sort out my pit of a fire place. My house is victorian so I had 100 years worth of dust, soot and ruble fall on me this morning. It is turning into a much bigger project than anticipated.
I have to squeeze it in in between work, working on my art (more so as I may have a show coming up eep) and you know…having a life! Progress is slow.
I am going to add photos soon as I want people to see how much work I have done! I am sure it’s going to look amazing in the end and will be worth it…it’s just getting there thats the problem.
