My Bedroom Makeover!

My Bedroom Makeover!

Welcome to my room! Okay, let’s do this. (singing)
Welcome to a vlog that probably no one wants to see Featuring uncopyrighted music made by me Forgive the shaky camera work cause I don’t have a gimbal And forgive the multiple ad breaks cause I need money to buy myself a gimbal This is my room. And it is hot in here right now, because I had to turn the AC off to get good sound on this video, and now there’s a super loud lawnmower outside, so… Why do even try? Almost everything in here is at least a couple years old, and some of it is really pretty old. Not talking about myself. So I decided it’s time to redo it. I live in an apartment, and I probably will for the foreseeable future, unless my music makes me super rich, um… That’s on you all. So I can’t go crazy remodeling or painting really, but I can replace the things in here and rearrange them. And that’s what I’m gonna do in this video. So pretty much this whole room makeover thing was inspired by the fact that I need a new mattress. Bad. This one is about 8 or 9 years old and it’s killing my back. It’s also a full size, which is okay for me, but it’s a little small for two people, and also because when I’m alone I sleep in the middle and I just spread out, so now there’s like a valley in the middle of the mattress so when there are two people they kind of tend to roll towards each other. And uh, it’s not ideal. So I’m thinking if I’m gonna pay for a new mattress I might as well just upgrade it to a queen, right? Cause that’s what I would really rather have. The problem is this room is small and my furniture is so chunky that it barely fits across the room. So this is actually a queen headboard, but since I have a full mattress on it, I’m able to slightly overlap the headboard and the nightstand, and then butt the headboard and the dresser right up against each other. So it’s wall to wall furniture, there’s no room for anything bigger. So I can’t get a bigger mattress and keep this furniture in its current configuration. And I don’t have a whole lot of room to rearrange the furniture, like for example moving this bed in front of the window, because the headboard is super tall, and it would cover half the window, and this room is already not very bright. And also, I have a massive desk. (Singing)
Big old desk is stupidly large So this gets me thinking about my furniture too. I’ve gotten five– spam calls today. This set of bedroom furniture is over 20 years old. My parents got it for me when I moved out of a toddler bed into a regular sized bed. It’s the only bedroom furniture I’ve had my whole life. I feel like you can tell. It’s straight out of the mid-90s. I am sentimentally attached to it because it’s been with me for so long, but it’s not really my style, it really never has been my style, and I didn’t get to pick it out. It’s also an inefficient use of space. For how big the pieces of furniture are, the drawers are relatively small, and there’s a lot of this border around the edges just making it clunky and taking up extra space. I think I can find something that’s a more modern, slimmer style, so even if my mattress– I think I can find something that’s a more modern, slimmer style, so even if the mattress is bigger, the room won’t feel any smaller. I like the look of the long dresser, and the space that it has to set things on top of it, but since I think I’m gonna be living in pretty small apartments for a good long while, I think it would be a good choice for me to get a tall dresser instead. All I know is it definitely can’t be longer than this one. So that’s what I’m gonna be looking for. The top of this dresser feels really cluttered to me, and I know that if I get a tall dresser I’m gonna be losing space on top. So I’m gonna be looking for other ways to store some of this stuff, or maybe to just get rid of it. This desk is the main thing I definitely want to stay. It’s about 6 years old, it’s still in great condition, I actually built this little grey thing that goes on top of it that has my speakers sitting on it, and it has my rack mounted components. So even though this desk is sort of huge and sort of ungainly, I’m not getting rid of it. I will work around it, because I love this desk. Also, nobody else is allowed to insult my desk, only me. So yeah, it’s time for some changes. I’m gonna start bringing things out so I can bring other things in. (Singing)
Taking my stuff out from under the bed That’s what you heard
Yeah, cause that’s what I said I have got way too much stuff under here Next thing I’m gonna do is take the mirror I’ve got a very empty corner now and some new stuff is coming in here today. (Singing)
My empty corner just got a new thing That’s why I wrote this stupid song to sing What next Mattress is leaving, it’s no longer mine
Goodbye, I won’t miss you, you f*cked with my spine I just had this mattress delivered and when it gets delivered you’re supposed to check it for rips and tears and make sure it’s actually the mattress that you ordered, and stuff like that, because once the delivery people leave, you’re not allowed to return it. So I just checked it with the people here, and the guy said that in 20 years of delivering mattresses he’s never seen someone check a mattress so thoroughly. The guy was so proud of me. He said keep doing that for everything in your life. So I guess, you know, me being a control freak paid off. And this is the after! I sold the old nightstand and I donated the rest of the old furniture to Habitat for Humanity, because nobody wanted to buy it. (Singing)
What’s this? New room
New stuff, same room See how that works?
Yeah, I get it, yeah, yeah. So imagine you’re a guest at my house. You’re walking into my room, everything seems fine, everything seems relatively normal, until you turn around and see behind you… A 2 x 3 ft canvas of my head photoshopped onto Napoleon Bonaparte’s body. Yes, this is Napoleanne. Should you bow? Should you curtsy? Should you make a break for it? To be fair I did not make that of myself, it was a gift from some of my followers, but I did welcome her into my home and now love her as my own. Starting with the bed! Oh my god. I wouldn’t have thought it was possible to love my bed more than I already did. I’ve had the mattress for a couple weeks now, and honestly, I’ve never been more satisfied. In bed. I put up curtains, I rearranged a lot of the things that were hanging on my wall. Now on the left side when you’re facing the bed I have my three city maps, LA, Barcelona, and Madrid. There’s no Oklahoma map because for some reason, I don’t know why, The designer didn’t have Bartlesville, Oklahoma as one of their large metropolitan area map options. This bed is a lot closer to the floor, there’s no box spring, and there’s storage. So much storage. It took several hours to put together, and it’s gonna be a b*tch to take it apart when I have to move out of this room cause there’s no way it’s fitting through the door. But the relief that I felt when this bed was done, and I was stowing all my stuff under there, and I put all my stuff and there was still room for more stuff– Unbeatable. I’ve also got my high dresser now which I’m loving. Even though it’s smaller and it has one less drawer, I think it actually fits more clothes in it because of the size of the drawers. All my jewelry has been moved to an organizer inside the dresser drawer which really reduced the feeling of clutter. I’ve got a few family pictures on the top, my Oklahoma license plate, and of course my very special YouTube plaque. I’m keeping the pink lamp for now because while it doesn’t go super well with the room, it was a gift and it’s got a big sentimental value to me. I’ve got the matching nightstand which is very cute, there’s a little home for my bread in there, I got a new lamp and a framed version of this painting which is called “Boy with Rabbit” by Sir Henry Raeburn who’s actually one of my ancestors. I got a new chair for my desk as well. The story of my old desk chair is a sad tale. It’s about 6 years old, all covered in fake leather, and after a couple years of use, the fake leather somehow got a rip in it, and it started to peel back. Eventually the rips on the seat part reached such a size and multitude that I felt like I had to duct tape over them to keep them from growing more. Which worked for a while, but then it had the opposite effect, because from the edges of the tape were born more rips, and then I ended up covering the whole seat in duct tape and then it got so disgusting that I had to rip all the duct tape off, and then with it I ripped all the fake leather off, so below it was, it was just like this spongy fabric underneath. And that was how I left it for probably two years. But I couldn’t make myself get rid of it, because I was like the chair works fine. I mean it looks a little bit gross, but there’s nothing wrong with it. Really I don’t need a new chair. I am certain that I got that chair for $40, even though I now cannot find it for $40 or any other office chair for $40. But I don’t want to pay more because I know that that’s how much I paid for it. So anyway, I found this really cute new chair and it was $55 and I was like, you know what, this is cute, it’s a small profile, I think it’ll look great in the new room, I think I’m ready to let the old chair go. Then I sit in the new one for a couple days and I discover it has absolutely zero back support. Which is not ideal when you work from home at your desk most of the time. So unfortunately I was only sort of able to get rid of the old chair. The two chairs now go back and forth between my desk and the piano. So if I’m working, I bring the old one in here because it doesn’t hurt my back. But if it’s just for decoration then I have the new one. I let my whole family down too because I texted my sister who is the #1 proponent of me getting rid of the old, gross chair, like “You’re gonna be so proud of me, guess what, I found a new chair today, I’m finally getting rid of the old one” and then I had to be like, “Well… sort of.” I moved it out to the living room. But it’s still in my house. And it comes back into my room sometimes. So that’s pretty much it for the new room! Let me know what you think of the transformation in the comments, if you enjoyed this video please, please leave me a like to encourage me to do more vlog content. Because I will if you like it. I will do more. And I’ll be back next time with some music. Thanks for watching! (Singing) I wrote an endscreen song To say goodbye Thanks for watching for so long But even an endscreen song has to end

  1. Lmao so you prolly won’t read this but we just had a baby and stumbled on you by trying to get her to stop crying and searching for lion king songs. Your song puts our 3 month old to sleep every time. Thank you! What you do is pretty neat!

  2. LOL, "Unless my music makes me super rich… and that's on you all." said with perfect matter of fact tone. Love it!

  3. That bra looks a little too big. Might wanna get a fitting done. Hell, if your boobs are small enough, don't waste money on bras in the first place. Just looks weird to me when a girl wears a snug shirt and the bra sticks out. Sorry if all this is pointless and insensitive to bring up, I just like stating my mind on things.

  4. Alright first soory if I make some mistakes because I'm from Germany and I just wann'a I Love your Videos and you always Happy on all days

  5. If you can't afford your apartment, Anne, you are more than welcome to live with me and share my bed.

  6. Fat mood when you said you are more in love with your bed!!!!!!!!!!!! SAME. Might I add, you have such a wonderful smile. Like oh my god!!!!! (Sorry for so many exclamation points)

  7. You should have put the semi creepy copies of yourself in the video. I dunno, they could have sung about bed spreads with you or something. Missed opportunity.

  8. Interesting video but for both of our benefit, here is the reality check. You are a very beautiful, smart, and talented female. You have some very expensive musical equipment and according to your degree of talent, you certainly deserve to have that equipment. I am sure this ain't your first rodeo. It took some practice, play, and experimentation. That means there must be a history of other equipment and failed and/or "old investments" hiding in the closet. Most people who have the ability to buy nice equipment like that, do not usually dedicate all of their resources to work. Some money is spent on frivolous life pleasures… such things that many poor people would likely call "spoiled rich kid expenses"… Like they say of me… That actually help to make you an experienced, wise, and well balanced person, maybe even ahead of your age, like you seem to be. You appear to be very well grounded human specimen, more than just a well fed monster, but this is YouTube, and who knows what kind of mentoring YouTuber's have behind the curtain. Any time there is a camera, you need to know who your audience is. You act, according to your audience… with the closet door closed.

  9. Hey, what a surprise to see a map of Madrid's Metro next to your bed. Have you ever been there? I hope you enjoyed your time in my city!! 😄

  10. I don't have criticism but a suggestion that you should wear more red because it compliments your hair and eyes also has a great contrast to most of your backgrounds.

  11. This was fun, creative, funny, and just an all-around treat! Please do more of these. Hope you enjoy your new room, my friend!

  12. She is so fine and such a good singer but from what i see she loves and creates drama. Shes the kinda bitch that gets between you and your girlfriend and breaks yall up. Fuck that. Id smash but never date… Lol

  13. Hey, have you considered making covers of some Beach Boys songs? 😀 Maybe "Wouldn't it be nice"? I believe it would be pretty awesome :3

  14. That bed is way to small for one people, and white walls are too hospitaly. If you want a house, look into buying a repo from HUD, or first time buyer program. Storage under the bed is ideal, maybe a platform setup. Why don't people use all that space above our head. High corner shelves are cool. Yes, I'm a dad…👴🏻

  15. You know what Anne? Your room looks awesomely beautiful after the makeover ! Very modern. Great Job!
    Oh ! One more thing…You are super talented. Please don't ever stop doing music .ok?
    Oh! One "other " thing….God!! you are beautiful !!! I hope you know how beautiful you are!
    Oh! One " other other " thing ….You have a beautiful and pleasant personality . I hope you will never stop being like that.
    Oh! One " other other other " thing….You have the most beautiful smile I've ever seen!
    Sorry, now I ran out of " other things" !! haha!

  16. Anna mi amor te Amooo… desde siempre!
    Ya no piensas hacer videos en Español?
    Toda America hispana desde Mexico hasta Argentina te ama, porque nos habeis hecho a un lado, no es justo cuando tu castellano es muy hermoso.
    Saludos tierna, i loge you!!

  17. For Christmas can you do "Away in a Manger" in the a cappella style, with muliple track's like your a choir? I think it would suit your voice 🙂

    Keep up the awesome work. Love your voice and your videos as well! 😊

  18. Buen video, ganaste espacio sin perder parte de los recuerdos que tenías y lo optimizaste todo muy bien. El tipo de silla es muy importante, a mi tambien me gusta componer musica, te recomiendo buscar una silla de oficina de tipo executive recline extra padded office chair, puedes encontrarlas entre 60 y 100 dolares. Gracias Anne por las covers, eres una de las personas con más talento que conozco y me encanta tu personalidad, gracias por compartir buena musica and a lot of good vibes 🙂 , te deseo mucho exito en todo lo que hagas.

  19. Nice changes… however… some painting would fit onto the wall… interested in German "Black Forrest" fun paintings?

  20. "I've never been so satisfied…in bed."
    [immediate disappointment face]

    That's uh, wonderful Anne. At least you're more satisfied now.

  21. I swear I watch the whole video afraid of her suddenly starting singing " mr. Sandmaaaaann, call me a dreeeeaamm". :V

  22. Anne, please do a cover of forever young you’d sound really good if you did a cover of that you are my favorite YouTube vocalist and that song means a lot to me ❤️
