Busy Bee

The past couple of days I have been working on cleaning this spare bedroom. My beau came up with the brilliant idea of moving the office into that room. It is much bigger in size and it already houses our clothes in the closet. It gets really great lighting during the day, even though the sun comes in from the opposite side of the house.

We had to take a part a very large desk because it couldn't fit through the door frame. That was the hardest part!! There were drawers attached to the bottom, but they broke off during the move down the hall. Assembling it back together was even harder, but we are done moving things for now.


I would love to give this room the works in terms of decorating; a fresh coat of paint and beautiful curtains but it probably wouldn't be worth it right now. So I will give it a really nice wash down to get rid of the dirt and tape marks on the wall.

We are thinking about getting a tapestry to at least cover a bare wall. I found these really cool prints online. They are just big enough to cover the entire wall to my left.

Then the wall in front of our computers will be reserved for my beau's gaming posters. He said I could get girly ones, but I'm turning into enough of a casual gamer that I would not even mind covering the entire wall with them. Well either games or band posters.

The next plan is to move a television to the wardrobe. It will be used mostly for games. It would work great because he wouldn't have to go outside for hours to play something on his PlayStation 3. I might be pushing it here, but I like the thought of having a futon in here also for naps.

So when we get everything placed and decorated, I will take some pictures.

Which tapestry do you guys like better? What are some other simple ideas for decorating?
