However, some things just don't sit right, but you live with them for a while until you have the time or inclination to change them.
I painted an additional wall in Sherwin Williams rainstorm and decided to do the trim in white. (The trim was not the original wood trim, but had been stained to match the original base boards.) I added white Ikea curtains; they were too sheer for Northern Alberta light levels, so I also bought a light blocking liner.
From there I finally tackled this mess. Our dressers have been a dumping ground for... well, everything.
I hung some artwork, and added interesting pieces that have been collected over the years.
The darker colour on the wall extends the size of the room by allowing it to recede. In an instant, the room appeared larger.
I added specimens from my ever-growing plant stock, as well. Plants always bring life to a room.
I hung some John Waters memorabilia (from that time I got to meet him and forgot that I had drawn on a pencil mustache) and a jewelry stand - for practical reasons.
Obviously a shrine to these drag-deities is a must (thanks NMC).
This perfect mid-century tray finally found its spot, as well.
Knives, money clips and statues, oh my!
