Show us Where you Live Friday!

Ok so today I am doing the Show Us Where You Live Friday at Kelly's Korner. I saw Helen Joy doing it and got super excited so this is my first week! (Note to normal blog followers: scrapbook day has hence been moved probably to Tuesdays)

Today is Master Bedrooms.

This is the beautiful dresser that I recently acquired when a woman came into my place of work and ended up giving me all sorts of furniture. I just moved it into our room and I think it's lovely. Brent wants to paint it but I think it really goes nicely with the orange.

This is my nightstand. Hubby has a matching one and lamp on the other side of the bed. I want to recover the lampshades but am not sure I want to have zebra for all eternity. I'm thinking about leaving the beige shade uncovered and unify the brown with the orange and black but I'm not so sure. You can also see the window fan in this photo. Our central air is broken and so we use fans and window A/C's. It's actually a very low electricity bill and it's not too hot.

paintings I did displayed on the wall

More paintings on the last unpainted wall. I don't know what to do with all the paintings I have. Brent loves them but I don't want to hang them all... the space looks cluttered when I do.

This mural is literally on the wall - it's possibly the best thing I've ever painted. I love the texture on it, and I love the location - being right between the two windows - because it's so perfectly framed by the room itself.

and this is the pile of paint supplies because I'm not done painting the room yet.

Our bed - I'm also ready for a makeover here... I want something I can alternate out to - maybe a big white comforter or a big black one... I get tired of zebra, although this bed set was a gift from my hubby and I don't want him to think I don't like it anymore, I just would like to change it every once in a while.

And this is why I didn't take a full room shot -- it's really quite a mess!! I wanted to share today but I didn't want to clean until 2 am!!!


  1. I like that you incorporated your own art. Really makes it yours!

    I hadn't thought about doing robin's egg blue... that might be really great! Thanks. :)

  2. cute art! I don't really get the pink commment...our walls are neutral and we have mostly aqua stuff (bedding, pillows, accessories) ???

  3. Yay! I'm so glad you did this! Really cool funky room. KB has a zebra comforter too. I love the orange walls!

  4. Your room is so cute!! I love the zebra print!

  5. gotta luv zebra!!! Thank you for sharing :)
