happy humpday! today i’m sharing with you memories of my childhood bedroom, as part of blog for digs, a blogging fundraiser organized by claudia of stonehouse love that benefits the wonderful organization dwell with dignity. their mission is to create soothing, inspiring homes for families struggling with homelessness and poverty. definitely a worthy cause, right?
so my childhood bedroom was my canvas – early on, i got the decorating bug. i used to rearrange my furniture and accessories all the time – almost as often as i changed paint colors! i thought i’d start with the first color i chose all on my own…yep, purple. as in oh-so-pretty lavender purple – as in “what was i thinking?” purple!! and boy, did i love, love that color – i painted 3 walls in it, leaving one white wall (even back then i was experimenting with design!)
artwork in the room was your standard collage of people i was crushing on at the time. unfortunately i was stuck with the furniture i had – a very old, very overbearing wooden dresser that took up an entire wall and was beyond hideous. i did what i could with it, but let’s be honest – there’s not much you can do with a giant, ugly dresser like this other than carve it up for parts! (let’s just say, it was a happy day when i got to give it away – and finally have a normal, human-sized dresser)
it was my sanctuary, my dance studio, my hangout and my own blank canvas.
thanks for taking this trip down memory lane with me! click here if you’d like to make a donation to dwell with dignity - it’s such a worthy cause to support!
