A big part of me cannot even believe that I’m showing you this room. Because right now it’s a junk room. And I didn’t even bother to clean up before taking these photos! But showing you my house is showing you my house. Flaws and all. And this is by far the biggest.
The only thing I’ve done since moving in is painted the walls. Since I didn’t know what exactly I wanted to do as far as decorating this room I went with a neutral. Had it not been a glaringly bright harlot red when I moved in I would have held off, but it literally felt like walking into a red light district every time I opened the door! Yeah, it was that bad. I would normally leave the ceiling white, but the previous owners had done some bad touch-up paintwork with a matte on eggshell paint that stuck out like a sore thumb. It went all the way around the border of the room and needed a fast fix. The thought of repainting once I know what I’m doing has crossed my mind on more than one occasion.
For the time being a coffee table lives here. It’s the table I was using before I got my current one. I love it and have no plans of selling, just hanging onto it for whatever house comes my way later in life. There’s also a stack of boxes full of things I need to either keep or donate. Exciting stuff, right?
This is my dad’s secretary desk from when he was a kid. It sat in our living room for years while I was growing up and now it’s mine! I have nowhere else for it at the moment, so it’s bound to be a fixture in this room no matter how I decorate.
