Room Makeover!

This last weekend Brent went camping. I didn't know what I was going to do with myself so I decided to re-arrange my room. Why? Just because. Change. I had my room the exact same for 3 years. It was long overdue. Plus, I have been watching a lot of HGTV lately. Shows like Divine Design and Rate My Space (which is my favorite) has inspired me to use my creative juices to spice up my room a little bit. So that is what I did Friday night and part of Saturday and was finished by the time Brent finally came back from camping. I don't know if I like my room better now than before. I liked the way it was before which is why I kept it that way for so long. But having change is good.
Here is the before picture of my room.... the way it has been for 3 years....

Here is what it looks like since Friday. Which do you like better?

I did a few other things to spice the room up a little bit. A couple more craft projects (which you know by now that I love)

This is a cool mirror that Lolly gave me as a house warming gift when I moved away from home for the first time... long time ago. Cool mirror, but to make it look new and fresh, I decided to spray paint it black! I love it!

I also had this big collage frame.... which I was just really over. So I decided to make something new out of it. I got some scrapbook paper and some ribbon and blew up and picture of Brent and I and this is what I got. It has become the focal point in the room and one of my new favorite decorations!

So it turns out the only thing that I bought was the scrapbook paper and ribbon and then a couple of more fun pillows for my bed. Everything else was already there and I just changed it. Or something I found around the house that I thought I could add. It was kind of fun... but not something I would want to do on a regular basis.

Alrighty, the picture frame of you and Brent is soooooo cute. And I love the chandelier thingy! May I ask where you got it? I think I want one for my room!

You did a great job!

Cute crafts. We usually end up spraying everything black eventually. We did a mirror too.
I like your room both ways, and it is fun to switch things up.
