Decorating 101

I can't believe I'm showing y'all these pictures - I really am ashamed! This is my extra room, I've been trying to decide what color to paint the walls and how I want it to look. I finally decided on my color, well in my mind the color I want - hopefully it actually exist. I have to describe it for you, it's the color of the sky at the beach on a perfect sunny day and your looking through polarized sunglasses, got that color in your mind? I'm leaving the trim white - it's already freshly painted and it's white enough said. I ordered a writing desk yesterday and it should arrive next week. I wanted something really for my laptop and if and when I get back to scrapbooking I'll have some where to do it. I plan to hang a lot of my dad's photos of the beach in the room - the water just makes everything calm to me. Anyway here are the before pictures and hopefully by next week everything will be completed and I'll be sharing the after pictures.
This is coming into the room from the hallway.
This is my mess except for my grandmother's sewing machine. After she passed away I had my mom keep it for me until we finally got situated so nothing would happen to it. I can remember being a little girl and watching her sew on this. Maybe one day I'll be able to sew on my machine!
My closet, it's really a big closet and I'm getting rid of some of those containers, I'm sick of having containers! I hope to organize with maybe some shelving so I can put my overflow candle stuff in it.
Next up - front porch. I'll take a picture so I can get some advice on how to decorate it.

Your plans for your room sound wonderful. I can't picture that color through polarized glasses, but the sky being that blue is always beautiful. And your dad's pictures will be so so so pretty and special in there. I can't wait to see the after pictures.

It's great that you have an extra room for just your things. Can't wait to see what you do with it. Do you plan to paint the room yourself?
