I moved into my apartment September of 2013. By October of 2013 I basically stopped decorating my apartment. I had done a lot, got burned out, and ran out of money. What I had decorated was great, but I have always wanted to do more.
Fast forward to a year later and while I had decorated and changed up my living room, I had yet to decorate my bedroom. Honestly no one but me goes in there, clothes are always all over the place, and what I have wanted to do was going to cost money. But I finally bit the bullet and got my bedroom decorated...at least a little bit!
The Before: Sorry for the unmade bed:)
I liked my cream colored curtains because they made the room light. But they were terrible about blocking out light. And the apartment complex decided a couple weeks ago to replace our street light bulbs with the brightest ones they could find. There just so happens to be a street light right outside my apartment. So darker curtains were needed.
That little space with the printer? I have wanted to add a table and decorate the wall for all my jewelry. I shopped around and found the table below from Walmart. Assemble was weird, but it works. And it was cost efficient.
I feel like I still need to add to the wall behind my bed. But I am not sure what else I want to put with my monogram. Suggestions anyone? I am open to just about anything!
Please excuse the chair full of clothes. At least I made the bed? Also still looking/saving for a real desk chair. The current one is from my dining room.
One of my friends from college, Becky, made the earring holder. I love it! I have found that when I display all of my jewelry, the more likely I am to wear it. Also I had forgotten how many earrings I have. It had all been hidden away for the last year because I did not have a place for my jewelry.
The table was the perfect addition I needed. I love the color and height and that my printer can fit underneath it. I wish the printer was more hidden, but hey it's a give and take when you are decorating on a budget!
I am in love with my new additions! Plus I am pretty proud of myself for finally getting around to decorating my room. Also sorry for the crappy iphone pictures. It was quicker and easier than pulling out the big camera!
