It Will Be Worth It In The End. I Hope.

Who new redecorating a room could be so much work! We (me and mom) spent the whole day painting my room and bookshelf and we're still not done! We did take quite a few five minute breaks because the paint fumes were really bothering us! We mainly just have touch-ups, but we still have a little bit on the bookshelf to do. Me and my crazy ideas! Wanting to go from pink, purple, lime green, and blue walls to red, beige, and black (that's a color scheme I never thought could work so well!!)! The painting begun at 10:00 this morning and we quit at 10:00 at night. I somehow managed to get black paint on my forearm and (again with the bright ideas) tried to use fingernail polish remover to get it off. All that did was make it worse! Mom said that toothpaste took hers off pretty good, but I can't stand to have sticky stuff on me! Even when I was little I couldn't stand to have sticky hands or fingers! So I scrubbed at it and managed to get most of it off. We still have to put up all the decor as well, but that wont be able to happen until I buy it all! So far the whole redecoration process has consisted of: a much needed deep cleaning, rearranging, selling almost all of my old decor, making a cute little "My Stash" mason jar with a moustache on it to put all of my "bedroom funds" money in, buying all new bedding and decor(incomplete), buying paint, painting, deciding where to put the few things I have bought, putting them there, vigilant eBay watching/checking for decor, looking for decor at other places, and other things I'm sure I'm missing. It's a very tiring process! I'll post pics once we get the finished project:) Until then fell free to guess the theme I went with:) The only hints you get are the colors I mentioned earlier in this post. They probably don't help that much though:)

Happy Guessing:)


  1. Sounds fun! Wish I was there to see it. I would help you paint! TAKE PICTURES

    Oh no! Were you using oil-based paint? Mom usually uses water-based paint because it washes off easier. It's a good thing too, because I am SUCH a messy painter. (She is too. Ha!)

  2. Haha:) I will!:) They will be posted as soon as we finish:) Actually we were using oil based for my shelf. It was all we had and mom said it wouldn't take very many coats so I used it. Only one coat with minor touchups, but getting it off my hands was a nightmare!

  3. I know what your theme is! :) But I won't spoil it for other guessers. ;)

    1. The wait won't last much longer! I have everything ordered and a few special items that I will get done soon:) Pics should be up by the end of next week:) Really everything is done except one whole wall. It's the wall that I had to order stuff for hahah:)
