I did a revolutionary DIY yesterday. It involved spray painting end tables we found in the garbage WHITE. WOAH. For the record I HATE spray painting. I feel like I have a CLAW for a hand when im done. That summer scooping ice-cream for rude Americans wearing socks and buckle sandals really fucked me over. Carpal tunnel for the win.
I finally finished this BITCH. It took so long for me to get motivated and just buckle down and stick 250 more holes in my wall. Anywhoodle, here she is! SHES A BEAUT CLARKE! I pulled a 14 year old girl move and boosted the colour on this photo. Deal with it. Next on my SLOW moving bedroom project is painting some night tables WHITE. Then I think it is time Daniel and I got a REAL bed. Yes folks, we are still sleeping on a mattress on the floor. I got my eye on a real show stopper at IKEA. I am just waiting for it to come into stock. I can’t wait to not have to crawl up off the floor in the morning LOL.
Later days fart weasels,
Lately I have REALLY shit the bed, and haven’t kept up with my blog. I am ashamed truly, especially because I know everyone else seems to be on the ball!
When I attended Blogpodium, it really inspired me to keep blogging away. It even inspired a new project that will be coming up shortly. I am so stoked about it, but for now I will keep it a secret. LOL! Blogpodium also supplied me with some pretty awesome free gifts. Para Paints gave out some fan decks of all their wonderful paint colours. Originally I thought I wanted to paint some stripes on my bedroom wall, but then the wheels started turning. I had a brilliant idea. I’m not sure if I had seen this somewhere or I just thought it up on my own; either way, I found myself at Staples buying 300 push pins, so I could tack all of these beautiful colours on my wall. I took some pictures along the way! Check it out!As you can see, I only had enough to do exactly half of the wall. I don’t know if I am content with this or not. Half of me thinks its fine and the other half is like “FINISH THE JOB JACKASS”. What are you guys thinking? Let me know down below!
Hello my Darling Dears,
I have completed phase two of the bedroom project, and the bedroom has been painted “ultra white.” Admittedly, I have no idea what phase three will be. I hope it involves a bed however. I am so sick of sleeping on a mattress on the floor, although on some levels it makes me feel kind of artsy. Now I can say with full confidence to my children [of the future] that “both your father and I were so poor when we were young we didn’t even have a bed. Just a mattress on the floor”. LOL I can’t wait!
Lots of love!
My doodle Daniel and I moved into our place in Toronto in September. To this day we have done NOTHING to our bedroom. It’s making me RUL cray cray, I won’t lie. I feel like I need a bedroom that I enjoy being in, so I’m taking charge and getting this bedroom DONE LIKE DINNER. Some of the problems are as follows; Our bed is nonexistent; it’s a mattress on the floor. The walls are a nasty shade of sage green, and everything we own is mismatched. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say it’s pretty much a GIANT HOT MESS.
In taking charge, I decided to bring you all along for the ride and really take the time and money to do this right. To be honest I have no idea where this money is going to come from, but whatever, I’ll save up. I really believe in investing in quality things that you love.
Step one of “The Bedroom Project” is finding inspiration and determining what you like.
These are 6 of MANY inspiration pictures I saved from Apartment Therapy and magazine clippings.
What did I learn from my inspirational pictures?
- I’m an 80 year old lady
- Organized clutter is a total YES
- I like Symmetry
- Rustic is for me
- My bedroom has to be white
- I need an antique beautiful important bed [its gonna be REAL pricey...]
- Gold and brass with white = Love
- I like Chalkboard walls, way too much
- Glamour is wonderful
- Bunnies must make an appearance
I think that this is a GREAT start! Phase one shall be to paint the walls white! I will let you guys in on ANY updates!
