Well with that title, I kind of feel like I’m on The Block! But with a much smaller budget and much bigger time frame. But rather than a ‘Thoughts in the life…’ post, I’m going to give you an overview of what has been taking over my life for a decent chunk of the year.
If you want a little back story to how and why this got started, you can read an earlier post here. And to be honest, it was a lot smoother sailing beyond that point. I picked my feature wall colour, carpet got installed, and new furniture came in. It still isn’t 100% finished (read: I just need to replace the door) but I have been enlisted by my parents to start the rest of the house, so that will be easily fixed at a later time. And everything in my room is how I want it minus a couple of furniture items I’ll purchase when I can budget them in. But I have to say I LOVE how my room has turned out. It is so much more fitting and even though it is a small space (certainly not designed for a queen bed!) I have made it work. Below is a little collage of the final look of the room.

As you can see, I have had a lot of fun decorating, and very much love the final result. I’m so proud that most of this was completed by me (minus the installation of the carpet and curtains), it makes it so much more enjoyable seeing my work paying off. My parents love it so much, I’m on rest of the house duty, so if there are any posts of certain renovation things you would like to see, let me know! Because I can assure you, there is a lot for me to do 😛
