Decorating Diaries

I'm typing this up a bit hastily because I should either be eating some breakfast or back to decorating but if I don't do it now I don't know when the next chance will be.

My room is coming along nicely and even though the floor is a mess because we moved everything about, the place just looks better by virtue of having cleaner walls. Most of the walls are painted and the ones that aren't have had some work done to them. We also plan to paint my chest of drawers (which I already did and messed up horribly so Jessica is going to touch it up for me) and the little cabinet I have. Today we plan to do that, give the whole room a clean, and get some curtains up and the door. We can't do carpet it seems but we can get that done another time. For now the room just looks great as it is. Carpet, while on the verge of a necessity because we got paint on the floor, is still only a minor one.

I'm hoping to replace my bedside chair with a bedside table which will reduce the amount of mess on the floor, which will dramatically help me keep the place clean.

We slept on the bunkbeds downstairs last night and don't tell anyone but that was kind of a dream of mine. I know it sounds incredibly silly. I'm always happy to share a room with her but on bunkbeds its like we're kids growing up. It just felt pretty nice. Plus we were watching Red Dwarf.

There are only two slight problems, one, she barely ever eats, which makes me feel fat when I eat. And two, she barely ever stops working, which makes me feel lazy. But I'm getting over those. Hell sometimes I actually force her to eat something. Someone shouldn't eat so little. I know I'm eating the right amount

Anyway, I've been taking a few pictures, so expect them soon.

  2. Enjoy your renovations. I wish I got something for my room, but it isn't actually designed for any renovations without emptying the whole house out. Not a viable options.
    I could always sleep in the garage though.

  5. Sounds like a formula for success. Never eat, and never stop working.

  7. Can't wait to see what you have done. Sleeping in bunk beds and watching Red Dwarf sounds awesome!

    {as for the eating, I'll just skip over that part}

    Hope you enjoy your new room!

  8. Can't wait for the pictures, but I know exactly what you mean by those people that never stop working. I was helping my step-brother move and his wife ordered pizza. Well, wouldn't you know I was the first one in the house to grab pizza because I didn't want it to get cold.

    And, I agree with Bersecules. Before and after photos would be awesome.

  12. ...you have stuff on your FLOOR? Who the hell keeps stuff on their floor these days? Sure, shove some un-needed things under the bed, but that should be it, really! The table will be a worthwhile upgrade!

  13. Bunk beds sound like fun. Reminds me of the movie "Big" with Tom Hanks.
