Truth be told, I'm a terrible decorator. I learned from my mom who jokes that her decorating style is "Early American Attic" - you know....anything she's found, been given, etc.
So last year, I had "decorate my bedroom" on my list and I never made it happen. I want to but then it seems so silly to spend money on a room that I'm the only one who ever sees.
So Sunday I got the decorating bug. I was bored and needed a project. Red is my favorite color so I started there. I got a beautiful mirror for Christmas that I'd hung above my bed so I used it as my inspiration. Then I spent some time scouring for wall art and couldn't find a thing. So I got crafty.
Here's my bedding set and my mirror.
I dug out my mod podge (what crafter doesn't love this stuff?)
Then I took some 12x12 canvases I had bought for a different project. I had scored these on a great deal at Walmart - it was $5 for ten of them. I used a few and then they've sat in my closet a while. I painted the edges black. I didn't bother to be exact - paper was going to cover it up anyway.
Then I found some paper that I liked. I liked several pieces in this pack - it looked like old wallpaper to me and the colors were good.
I have a few things left I want to do in my room but I'm on my way to a grown-up room in no time. haha
Oh, one more thing from last year's list...I wanted to buy a new car but was upside down and put it off. Well, thanks to some wheeling and dealing and some work on my credit, yesterday I signed for my new car. Love it! Road trip anyone??
