Room Tour // California Edition

DSC_1125 Something I worked hard on all year was decorating my space. At school I lived in a house with 4 of my friends, and had my own room. If you know me, I have a need to make everything around me designed. Adding color and art to my room keeps me sane. I have since moved out of this room because I'll be abroad next year, but was sure to snap some photos throughout the year. I hope you enjoy my space and all of my DIY enhancements!

This shelf was a leftover display piece from Anthropologie. When my internship ended, I took it home and added a coat of red paint to make it pop on the white walls. It held my architecture books, special photos, DIY Gold Skull, and bone paintings, which are available here

This piece is another one of my personal paintings. Like it? Make it your own!

This DIY Pegboard Organizer added an industrial touch to the room, made out of scraps from my school's wood shop. Make your own!

This DIY Crate Table was one of the final changes I made to my room. It helped me get organized by creating a place for my camera equipment and a spot to drop my keys when I walked in the door. Not to mention, the perfect place to store my records and record player so I could jam out! Check out the tutorial!

My favorite part of my room was hanging up my skateboard art and continuously working on them throughout the year. This wall was ever-changing as I sold art and got new commissions. Pictured: Skull Coffin Deck, Coalition Ribcage Deck

A final small moment in my room, one of my favorite records and this DIY studded beanie. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqZWWw4a6Es&w=560&h=315]

Thank you so much for checking out my little space! Soon I will be sharing my room at home because I recently cleared some old things out and spruced it up! See you tomorrow, x.

DSC_1234 Since I had already tackled my closet as part of my spring cleaning (see my video if you missed it), I had to move on to another part of my room.

I had plans for this entire quarter to build an elaborate table for my room, and even saved this piece of plywood, but time just never seemed to permit. But today when I finished my finals (!) it was the first thing I got done...but by a little faster route.

Like I said I had saved this piece of plywood for a while now. I got in from the shop yard of my school's wood shop--aka it was free. It's a great place for people like me. As for the crates, I first walked down to two antique shops next to my house looking for some cool vintage ones, but at $40 a pop, I passed. I picked up these two wooden crates at Michael's today instead and just set the wood on top. Easy. Done.

The reason I wanted open crates was so they could double as storage. Since I set my record player on top of the table, I stored my records in one of the crates which I really like the look of. I'm using the other one for my camera gear, which I need access to daily!

Remember the pipe and flange lampI made a while back? I wanted to display it on this table as well. However, I broke the lightbulb recently, so for now, its working as a great hat rack!

Finally, I set my long mirror on top of the table. This wasn't part of my original plan, but it now lets me see my full outfit without having to kneel down (a fashion bloggers dream!). It also adds some nice height to the space!

I hope you enjoyed this little storage DIY--I wanted to share it because its such a fast storage solution that also shows off your personality at the same time.

Thanks for reading! See you tomorrow with an outfit post to show you what I wore to dinner with my friends!
