Taking a break from fashion I wanted to share with you all my latest project! Besides school, work and extracurriculars I have been busy redecorating my bedroom. This weekend I hit Ikea, Homegoods and At Home and found some really great pieces that tied it all together. My bestfriend and I moved into our cute two bedroom/two bathroom townhouse roughly six months ago and every room, including our office area, has been styled and decorated; every room except for mine. Enough was enough so I finally started my room makeover.
This decorating journey has been a challenge. My Ikea trip to get my WHITE chair went south quickly... As soon as I checked out and got the chair to my car, my normal size car, I tried placing the box in my back seat. This is a busy Ikea on a Saturday so there were cars already waiting for my spot and the persons spot next to me who happened to be leaving at the same time that I was trying to jam that large box into my car. As it dawned on me that I am going to have to remove the WHITE chair from the box in order for it to fit, two older gentlemen walk over and offer their assistance (they could clearly tell I was about to have a nervous breakdown in the middle of the parking lot). Normally I would try and handle this on my own but there were people waiting for my spot. No pressure. Once the chair was out of its box it was going to fit no problem... Only there was a problem. The chair is white and my car is black and was dirty. Not a good combination. As the gentleman slid the chair into the back seat it got a smudge of car dust on it. After a mini meltdown and a quick phone call to my mother (who calmed me down and told me how to get the smudge out) I cleaned it up and thankfully it looked as good as new.
I still have a ways to go and a few more items to buy but I think it is coming along and finally feels full of my personality. I love coming home to my new space.
