Moving into a house with my husband at the end of the month and I'm finally get my own room for sewing! I would like to make this my computer room as well so I'm wondering if anyone has any pics of maybe youtubers or streamers rooms? Not sure if there are much pics out there of computer/sewing hybrid rooms but those would be helpful if they exist too!

I love this idea, you could get baskets that fit into the room divider, or a larger piece of wood and you'll be able to use it as a desk without having all your crafting supplies showing while livestreaming

Or if you wanna go all out, you could put the camera on the side of the shelves and put up a green screen on the wall of the other side of the table. Or place nerd merch like figures, merch, book, consoles etc there.

If you have things of various sizes to be stored I think shelves like these might be a good idea. You can lay bigger items on top while having smaller figures inside the shelves

And if you want to display wands/ bigger things I'd mount them to the wall in a way that makes them look like wall decorations. I think this would be so cute with magical girl wands - you could even add some sparkly decals near them?

Initially I thought, from the bright colours and lots of anime posters that this was the room of someone in their early to mid teens that liked sports anime... and then I saw the body pillow and looked more carefully.
>>
>>9626521
I agree - the 'cheer's one doesn't suit the room theme, and the font and styling of the 'witch' one seems a bit cheap, especially when compared to many of the much classier ornaments around it. The gravestone isn't exactly a sign, but it's still too Halloween-kitsch for the rest of the styling. The sand-timer, crystals, vintage fantasy/witch costume photograph, and ornate frames are rather nice though, and the floating shelves are neat.

I like that even her cake is a whale.

But no, the sad little happy birthday banner in a room bereft of any human presence and the sad, lonely little whale cake that just turn this from cringes into a work of art.

You know she ate that cake by herself in a single sitting, maybe with her love pillow propped up on the other side of the table.

I would approach from the idea of a generally cutesy-cute aesthetic, choose 1-2 pastels as your main focus and maybe white or cream as your neutral tone. I like the idea of a room that looks generally cute from a distance but as soon as you look closer you can see the themes. Since menhera has mainly been a clothing style you may need to look at the gurokawa, pastel goth and other related styles for inspiration. I also wonder about using some of the menhera-chan imagery or characters
>>
>>9633678
That's what I'm going for. Pastel vomit from afar, spooky up close. Unfortunately I was trad goth for years before beginning to transition into liking pastel colors. So all my furniture is black haha. Gonna change the hardware on the dressers/vanity though and maybe do some stripes in washi tape.
>>
>>9633701

If you can get pastel hardware for your vanity and dressers I actually think it would be quite fitting for your theme even without the washi tape.

Menhera chan again. I have some ugly brown bookcases to paint. Should I do black or a pastel? Or do the body black and the shelves pastel?

I'd personally do the outside black and do the shelves/back panel a pastel colour to make it pop.

I've got ADHD, so sometimes I simply do not have the motivation or energy for major re-organization, or a full on konmari purge, so I've started using what I call the tote bag method. I grab about 4-5 tote bags, and go around my room shoving clutter into the tote bags (carefully putting fragile things on top of everything else).

Once this is done, I line the bags outside my room and wait a few days. If I find there are things I need to dig out of the bags more than once, they stay in my room. At the end of a week, I take one bag and go through it, deciding what looks good in terms of decor, what I need practically over time, and what I just don't care about or use. I find I get rid of so much more useless stuff this way. If I find I'm undecided about a thing, I chuck it in one of the other totes and try to make a decision later.

It usually takes me a day or two to work through a tote. Then, I move on the next one. If I don't get around to it for a while, it's okay, because all the clutter is at the very least, out of the way, in easy-to-search bags.

I find I'm a lot less stressed about clutter this way, and more likely to actually sort through my shit. I can also clean my room more often.

I've been getting myself into the whole room renovation thing because I spend most of my time up there but it was depressing to look at.I also have those days where I just cannot motivate myself to get out of bed so I wait for my other half to have days off and plan it with him so he'll help and motivate me if I start to slip, get overwhelmed or try to take on too much. I usually try to do everything in one day so we decided to do one area of the room at a time, starting with under the bed, some drawers which just held clutter and craft stuff and the wardrobe.
He's very much about getting shit done, and on a good day so can I, but he's like this 24/7.

So far we've gutted my wardrobe and put some drawers in for our things because it was just a rail and a lot of dead space below, and during that process we went through clothes that may not fit, that I just dont like anymore to make way for new ones. We even got my fabric stash and folded it down into one of those bags that pillows come in and that worked out much better than a plastic crate on the top portion of the wardrobe (its built into the wall).

I still have a lot to do like change the desk because I've still got one that belonged to my brother in the 90's and its just too small for me and is incredibly dated, so I might do it up for my niece because she just started school. I also have a bookshelf which got scratched up by my other brother so I'm going to give that a make over.

The only main issue I'm having is patches of black mold on my ceiling. It was perfectly fine until my dad put insulation foam (the yellow fiberglass kind) into the attic and then I started to develop patches. He sends me in with this bleach spray designed for showers but it only gets rid of the symptom temporarily rather than solve the issue - any advice?

I wish I'd taken some 'before' shots so I could show you guys my progress but I'll be sure to show you the finished product and progress on the mini projects like the bookshelf.
>>
>>9652890
The issue is the walls are paneled and the grooves are pretty deep, so I worry about it sitting flat on the paneling and not getting stuck in the grooves.
>>9652919
That....might actually help quite a bit. And I have a bunch of old photo frames to do it with.
>>9653067
Dude I'm trying. It's not like I'm a neet (not that I haven't been before, yikes those days were miserable) like I am going to school and working. It just makes more financial sense at the moment. If I could stay in school full time and work enough hours to get my own place, I would. But that's just not an option at the moment.

I'm sorry but a lot of these still seem cluttered and messy to me? All of the shelves are overstuffed, it almost makes me uncomfortable just seeing it, let alone living in it. I can't imagine how much dust all of those plushies will collect. But maybe I just generally prefer less things, idk.

That sounds really interesting. I don't have anything in my inspo folder like that, but if you come across something that fits the bill, please share.
