I've been busy working in so many things but in the end I haven't finished anything! It looks like I've been doing nothing at all!
Today I want to talk about my bedroom. I began the year full steam ahead renovating it, the ugly, stained ceiling got fixed, painted, and wooden beams were added, fuff it was quite a job! I still remember being stuck up there in the attic!
Then storage problems were solved by building a bookcase/fireplace unit, another big project.
Finally, the windows got trimmed too, and I even painted around them with that pretty blue color, it looked like the room was finished, but no, far from that!
This is how it looks right now! I simply painted around the windows because that was my first contributors writer post for Pretty Handy Girl, I couldn't send her the pictures of the pretty trimmed windows with that "poop" color on the walls! So, that's the only part I painted.
Since I'd been out of the bedroom during all that work, tired of sleeping on a tiny bed for more than a month, I just brought my bed back and forgot about this room for a while.
I could have painted the whole room after finishing with the bookcases, but I want something different for that back wall, I want to make that wall the room's focal point.
That "something" is wallpaper and it's being a problem because I haven't found a wallpaper within my budget that I like. For some reason I really really want to have a textured paper and here I'm going to show you the ones that I've been considering.
The first picture in this post is kind of my dream come true paper, because I like its movement, I'm such a straight lines, geometric shapes kind of person, that it's like pushing aside from lines and embracing swirls, the problem is I haven't even found if that's a wallpaper!
This next picture is more like the usual me... geometric shapes! I like it but I'm not crazy about it.
This is different, lots of movement, but still not quite what I really want.
I told you, I keep on gravitating towards geometric shapes!

I've looked at regular wallpapers too, like the one below, but then I probably can paint those designs and save me the $70/roll they cost.
That's been my dilemma and that's why that room is still a mess. I'd like to hear from you! I'm working towards a "white room", which one do you recommend?
