I think I'm finally done with my bedroom.
And by 'finally done', I mean 'finally done putting things where I want and making it livable since moving in'. Yes, it's taken me this long. Large scale cleaning projects are a pain for me, so I'd been poking at it on and off until just recently.
It started with the draft. My window, the one directly above the bed (and the only window in the room) doesn't close properly. There is a narrow space between the window and the wall, and it lets in the cold. I finally put something over the window - a lovely length of red and gold brocade that I adjusted and tweaked to look like curtains. Then I decided that for such a lovely set up on the wall, the room was shit.
Cue two or so days of essentially burying myself in there during spare time to set everything to right. Then it was decorating time.
I hate blank spaces on walls. I don't know why, and I'm sure there are people who would say my walls are too busy, but it's my space and it's how I want it. And that's covered with as many posters, pictures and other things as possible.
And I got creative. After hanging all of my posters and pictures - everything from little anime posters to large movie posters to actual framed Art - I had lots of space left. So first I hung a pair of costume fairy wings up. Then some bookmarks. Then some cards and letters. Then I grabbed one of my Stand Sketchbooks - since I have 9 of the things - and carefully tore it apart and hung the character sketches. Sadly, Frannie didn't get to go up, as her page was on the back of Larry's. And there is no way in hell that Larry wasn't going up.
I still have blank space. I'd love some photo paper and ink to print out some of the beautiful Venture Bros art I've collected on my HD. The only VB thing I have on the wall is a small sheaf of paper with the Venture Industries logo on it, taken from one of my DVDs. But all in all, I'm happy with it. Even if the brocade blocks the light and tints the room red and causes me to wake up with no concept of what time it is. (I tell time by the amount of light in my room and where it's coming from in the morning.) It's my space, and it reflects me. Though I imagine anyone seeing it would be hard pressed to guess my age, what with the prevalence of action figures and plushies and cartoon characters on the walls. ;)
I'm just barely stopping myself from stringing Christmas lights all over the place.
I'll be getting to emails later this evening!
