Moving Back Home Room Photo Tour

When I first moved back home last fall after college, I promptly packed up all my things and put them in boxes up in the attic in anticipation of an easy move out for when I found a job.

Well, I ended up going to the United Kingdom instead, so that never happened.
I spent a solid week bringing things out of the attic and setting them up in my room. I hung up photos in picture frames (with actual nails!), I reorganized my bookshelf, took down all my old posters and photos from high school and started fresh. It felt pretty nice.

I bought this bookshelf for my dorm room and for a while I put it up in the attic (I don’t have a lot of floor space in my room). After shuffling some things around, I propped it against my window and put all my new books and photo albums on it to make my bookshelf look a little neater.

This is the wall you immediately see when you walk in my room. Before hung up some paintings I made as a high school freshman, before i made the switch to a Bruce Springsteen poster. Now, I hung up my Peanuts frames and added this hanger which holds my purse and anything I usually just toss on the foot of my bed.

This bulletin board was a MESS. It was cluttered and everything on it was so old because I never took anything down. Β I cleaned house, throwing out old brochures and photos and ticket stubs and only kept the stuff I wanted to look at or needed within reach.

My vanity is my room is also a mess. It’s pretty old already but I usually just toss stuff on there. I organized all my jewelry, toss away a ton of old make-up, and got creative with containers to hold everything in.

Above my desk is what I’m most excited about. It’s a work in progress photo wall, but eventually I want most of the photos to be black and white. I had all these old weird containers or vases that I added to the top of a little shelf on my desk and got around to hanging up the photo frames I bought last summer.

Making small changes in my room made me feel like I wasn’t living in a high school time capsule anymore. I still can’t wait to decorate my first apartment, but I don’t see that day in the near future. So until then, I’m compromising on continuing to upgrade my bedroom.

  1. Honestly, this is such a good idea. At least your making your room your own and allowing for growth – more adult settings, so you’ll feel at home.

    I’ll need to do that if I ever get a room.
