Porn Room

 

It's fun and a little racy.

I have a room in my house that I didn’t really know what to do with. I didn’t want a permanent guest room and it was too far away from family areas for an office. So at this point I have decided to call it my porn room, but I’m sure it’s not what you’re thinking.

You see I use to have this book and I loved the pictures. I suppose they were sexy, but I just thought they were fun and light. But now, of course, I don’t really have the lifestyle any longer that calls for fun coffee table books and it’s not like I am going to just pull it out of the bookcase to casually thumb through it. So I decided that maybe I would just use it for the “mystery room.”

This works much better than I expected.

 

I picked-up some border adhesive because I didn’t think I would need that much (as of now I have to stop because I ran out.). But I got 3/4 of the wall finished before it was empty.

The pictures I chose were the ones that showed the very least. Most of them actually don’t show anything at all, but they’re silly and of course suggestive. You can do this same thing also, but obviously you don’t have to use a pin-up book. A bunch of Dr. Seuss books could wallpaper a wall in a toy room, or even a stack of regular old novels could cover a wall in an office.

I was concerned that the paper would wrinkle because I wasn’t using actual wallpaper.

It's coming along!

I did a couple test pages and left them for a few hours. Even though the pages wrinkled a bit as I was applying them to the wall, they straightened themselves out as they dried to the wall. At this point here is the wall.

It’s hard to tell with the lighting in the picture, but the wall is a bright apricot color. Even though the wall is pretty garish, I originally did it to tone down the color intensity, and it actually worked. Here are a few close-ups of the pictures that I pasted up.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As you can see, there’s nothing here that would assault most peoples’ sensibilities. But again, you can do this with any book or pages, just make sure you aren’t going to want it back in book form in the next couple of years, because once you put it up there, you’ve sealed the deal (no pun intended….OK maybe it was a little intended).

About Kristen Van Loon

My name is Kristen Van Loon and this is the chronicle of my search for *Oomf!* Not only have I deemed myself qualified to revamp, repair, refurnish and refine my house, but I also jump into any DIY project that my friends, co-workers, family and practical strangers stumble upon. I would love to tell you that this is my full-time job and my complete life mission, but I make my bread and butter elsewhere and raise a daughter (Olivia). I have some experience but no time, no formal training and no money. My only saving grace is that I love figuring things out, I’m great at improvising and I’m always inspired. For the record, some things that I do (play with electricity, for one) may seem risky, and some of them are. I will always tell you what I’ve done, but I won’t ever suggest things for you that aren’t safe. Even though I push the envelope, I am only marginally incompetent. If sources (father, my brain, Google) tell me not to do something then I usually won’t. But if I do try and it blows up in my face (figuratively or literally) you will hear all about it, and you hopefully won’t attempt it. At the end of the day, I hope to inspire you. Space-Lift isn’t just a blog, it’s a verb. It’s an action that brightens your surroundings by assaulting everything that needs improvement. Nothing is off limits, and all possibilities will be considered.
