I don’t even know if I could call this a “revamp” because technically… before this, the corner of my room was pretty bland, and CROWDED. There lived my hamper, my plastic dresser from college, rubbermaid boxes full of fabric, more fabric on top, a box of patterns and some oversized books. Man oh man. A few days before my sisters and cousin were supposed to arrive into town, I decided that I needed to clean things up… and FINALLY hang some of the frames I’d purchased over a year ago.
I bought this large frame from Ikea, and for a year couldn’t find any artwork that I thought worked with it. So, on a whim (while looking at the huge pile of fabric in my room) a little lightbulb turned on and I decided to stick some fabric in the frame. I absolutely love the way it looks.
Around the large frame I hung smaller rectangular black frames and stuck postcards of some of my favorite women in history. Pictured (left to right): Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Abagail Adams, Dorthea Dix, and Frida Kahlo.
Also included in my little corner are my beloved and new (to me) record player, and my pretty gold milk crate (thanks, Jane!) which holds my ever growing record collection and some travel books to keep me excited about future trips.
I’m really excited to rent a Zipcar and head over to Ikea this weekend to pick up a few more things to really bring my room together (and eliminate clutter!). Organization is great, isn’t it?
