New House, New Room: Before

Hello there! This quick post is just a few photos of my new room. I haven't come close to finishing the set-up or organizing my closet, so this is just to show you guys what my new place looks like. I will do a room tour next weekend if I can, if not the week following it. It's fairly small and I can't paint it, so I'll have to deal with the yellow walls not matching anything in my room. And I present to you the BEFORE version of my new room, to be followed soon by an AFTER room and closet tour! =)

So first off, my bed area. I tucked the headboard part of it into the corner because I don't want the light to wake me up in the mornings. I've slept in too many a room where that happened and no amount of curtains ever helped. The sheets may look familiar to those of you who read my post of purchases for the dorm a while back. I'm combining two bedsets here, so the teal bottom sheet goes with my blue, white, black, and teal peacock bedding and the flowered top sheet goes with my reversible pink and magenta bedding. That blue and white Afghan belonged to my roomie's mother and I decided to keep it for sleepovers since she didn't want it. I might move the bed again to face the other direction so it's still tucked in the corner, just giving me some different room to work with.

Next up it the corner of the room to the left of the bed. As you can see I have a lot of junk that will be organized once I move my old bookcase into the room next weekend. For now it's a mess of stuffed animals, perfume, baskets, clothes, jewelry, and slippers.

This is the entrance on the right and the closet is the door with the faerie poster on it. You can see part of my roomie hiding on the right, in the blue sweater and jeans. She said she didn't want to be in the picture but I thought my camera would cut her out since it takes a picture and then cuts out about six to ten inches of the photo all around the border in the final photograph. Hence why I need a new camera, especially one that doesn't do that because it's aggravating when I have to think about what I'm taking a picture of and what exactly is going to show in the final photo. But that's not important right now. My closet is fairly small and it's not organized right now so I won't even show you the inside. I'll save that for the final tour.

And then this is just the corner at the edge of my bed. I got to keep the footstool from my roomie's mother because it's cute and blue. Next to it is my shoe organizer which will be going up next weekend, on top of  a box full of my shoes. I'm not sure how I feel about those curtains. They're the color you can see in the photo, but they don't really match anything in my room. I mean, I have black, pinks, blues, and white in my room, but are there too many pinks completing with the blues and black and white? Hm... I may have to make some new curtains.

And that, my friends, just about covers it! So to recap what's going on: Next weekend or sometime during the week following it I will do a room/closet tour. I don't know yet if it will just be photos or if I'll shoot a movie. I hope you are all doing well and that your holidays were exciting and fun! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
