Redecorating my room...

I have been working on redecorating my room. I live in a house with a friend and have a room in his house. I have been here 4 years now (as of July 2nd) and I have always thought it would be temporary. But alas, I am still here, so I finally decided to try and make it "my own." About 2 years ago, I did end up painting it a lovely, shade of blue.  Sort of a country/sky blue...which definitely did wonders for the space.  The horses I added after I painted the room because I am a horse lover at heart...and currently not working full time with these just make me happy to look at.  They are actually pieces of "horse wallpaper" that I found online at a "horse-y" shop.

Then in May of this year, I finally ordered a bookcase and a dresser. I ordered them from a local unfinished furniture place as I wasn't sure whether or not I wanted them to be stained or painted. I ended up getting them clear coated just to be on the safe side as I still haven't decided.

And this weekend, I found a cute quilt and pillow sham in various shades of blue at Bed, Bath & Beyond.

So my room is finally coming still has piles of stuff I need to go through and boxes of books that I will be donating to our local library (hopefully this coming week)...but at least I see some progress.

  1. Your room is adorable, I love this shade of blue. And the horses surely brought a touch of personality to it... It's fun to make a place to have our style, isn't it? :o)
