Here it is!
A few notes:
It also serves as a guestroom, (will happen at MOST once a year), but that's the reason for the old brass bed. My sister made the lovely quilt, but I need to get some decent linens.
Cubbie shelf is also second-hand. Paid
about 20 bucks. It was unfinished when I bought it. Looked like it had
been knocked together by a handyman who needed to store some tools. Baskets came from the dollar store, a buck-apiece. They fit perfectly!

was FREE. I think it came with our house and has been in the attic for
20 years. Dreadful old painting (print) came out. (Maybe I'll repurpose THAT, too.) I hot-glued the frame with bunches
of stuff that are all about me: old earrings,
a belt I wore in a show, items from late loved ones. Inside the frame
I've displayed some old books I enjoyed reading to my kids when they
were little. (The books were old when I bought them 2nd hand.)
removed the closet door and replaced it with an easy-to-move curtain.
Fabric came from my grandmother's sewing closet. Used the same
fabric to strategically cover the chair, which I got for 10 dollars at the
I bought cool old purses and hung them as extra storage. One is holding a clamp light with a broken clamp.
And that's IT!... well, except for those linens, and maybe a scatter rug to cover a colorful spot on the rug that looks like it may have been greasy Halloween makeup. (This was my son's childhood room.)
Now here's to great creativity in my new creative room!
