Recently I had the opportunity to move all my creative supplies out of my bedroom into a dedicated workshpace. Things were becoming so cramped it was becoming harder to work on creative projects. Once everything was moved the walls in my now emptied room looked worse for wear. Last week I mentioned I'd be sharing some bedroom projects. While my mom was brightening up my dining room chairs my dad and I were giving my room a fresh coat of white paint. I've never actually painted a whole room. It's a lot of work! We put two coats of paint on and in some areas three.
White walls aren't too exciting to photograph so I thought I'd share the black and white patterns I've been adding to my bedroom over the last few years.
The before cushions are not in bad shape but they had that vintage musty smell. Dry cleaning could take care of it but orange isn't really the right color for my room. For cushions I covered two Ikea pillows with handmade cases. The seat is a square pillow and the back is actually a standard sleeping pillow.
My bedroom curtains were another parent/daughter project from several years back. They started the black and white movement in my room.
Now that my walls are painted and the millions of pin holes have been filled in I'm reluctant to put anything on the walls. I will put stuff up eventually after much planning and consideration. Right now I'm enjoying my slightly empty room. It feels fresh and I'm repressing my urge to fill it up again.
