I Have Decided

All right, I've hit my limit.  I've been puttering around, saying I want to get this done.  But this is it.  I've decided that my room is going to be completely redone-- painted, new carpet, new linens and widow dressings, new furniture bought and assembled-- by my birthday.  That gives me just about two months to get it all done.  Fortunately, I pretty much know what I want.  I haven't looked at paint chips yet, but I know I want lemon yellow walls.  (So much more cheerful than the sort of gray-ish lavender I have now.)

I want this bedding set.

This TV stand/media storage.

This glass-fronted bookcase for yarn storage, except in white.  (I'm showing you the black version so you can see the frosted pattern on the doors.)

And possibly a second bookcase, without the doors, just for more storage.

I'll also have to figure out stuff like lighting-- there's an overhead light, but it's the most horrendous, depressing thing you've ever seen.  I literally wince every time I have to turn the overhead light on.  And I'll need to figure out something about the carpet.  It's a weird lavender color.  I've never replaced carpet before, and I have no idea how much it will cost.  Maybe I'll just give it a good professional cleaning and look at the floor as little as possible.

And of course I have to clean out all the crap so I can get to the walls and carpet.  But believe it or not, I've been making some minor, but encouraging progress.  So I'm going to keep plugging away, hopefully at a faster pace.

Because I'm really sick of existing like this, and I want a livable space.
