room make-over

for months now, since our living room, dining area and kitchen started to undergo some repairs and repainting job, i've been trying to convince my mom to do the same in my room. i want it done in red! but so far i haven't succeeded and i don't think i ever will. so i'm now left to my own artistic devices.

that's where the problem starts. as much as i want to deny it, i don't have any artistic tendencies. drawing a person for me means drawing a stick figure. thinking or imagining a design for my room is just beyond me. all i know is i want to have colors in my room. right now, everything is in wood. the walls are narra ply, which is the main reason why my mom doesn't want it painted. the beds, the windows, the floor and the cabinets are all made of wood and varnished with antique finish. i wonder if i'd soon end up of antique finish too.

although nothing is broken and all are still functional, sometimes i just find my room too gloomy. so how do i infuse some colors into my room? next to the color problem is the storage problem. my sister and i used to share this room and although she has a house of her own now, she refused to budge when i asked to have her bed removed from the room so there would be more space for storage and other things. i understand her sentiments and i know, that was mean of me for even suggesting it, but then, i just have to try. ;-)

i think i've been watching too much room make-overs on tv!

Hi Kero,
Try to go to oprah.com and look at nate's suggestions. But you know, I like your room. :)

don't paint over those beautiful narra plywood! good quality narra ply is very hard to find now. you're room is already nice as is. i like those old style sliding windows. you can accent them by using colored glass (red and yellow maybe?) on some of the sections. It would make it look more interesting and a lil bohemian. :)

by the way, how did the food for the gods turn out?

oh, i almost forgot, just get rid of your sister's bed :P

bugsybee: thanks for the site. i'm looking it over and got some ideas. i think getting colorful bedcovers would do the trick and some accent pillows too. wish me luck! =)

miwa: i owe you a big one!=) you'll never believe it, but every weekend, my siblings fight over the food for the gods! so i have to make 1 batch for each of them and my mom is complaining already. she's paying for the ingredients but we're not giving her a piece (she's diabetic)!

i told my sis last weekend that i'm getting rid of her bed and i got a whack in the head! soft lang naman =P
