So here is a tour of my student bedroom, redecorated using only white-tack and nails (which of course I polyfillered and repainted when I left).
My door. La Coulisse is french for 'the wings' as in backstage at a theatre in French. I like the idea of my room being behind the scenes and I love the theatre.
On the left wall as you entered my room I hung a mirror and my jewellery diplay boards, as well as other pretty things like my black fairy wings.
In the corner facing the door was my desk. It was always a mess so I didn't take any pictures of it. Above the desk there was a noticeboard, posters, my clock and photos. The picture leaning on the desk is a picture my friend norma drew of me. I couldn't put it on the wall because the frame is really heavy so that would have involved some serious fixings and a power drill.
Here is a picture showing the entire wall.
The wooden bookcase served as a dressing table and a place to display things:
On the window sill, I kept my signed Siouxsie Sioux poster (also too heavy to hang) and above on the lintel was my collection of glass bottles.
The window bay had a boxed in electrical meter and I used this as a bedside table. The trunk here is full of all my important papers, like the electricity bills!
Above the bed I had more photographs, posters, a lino print by my friend miriam and a silk painting I did in year 9 when we were studying gaudi in art.
Finally a picture of my wardrobe doors. I brought these canvases with Parisian scenes in a charity shop.
