    Well I took my broke self to ikea and spent about 500 bucks on a new bed frame, computer work station, and other useless junk. Then just recently picked up a memory foam mattress.. (it's :bowdown::bowdown::bowdown: by the way...)

    Well looking at my room.. it's fucking plain as fuck!

    I don't know what else I should add... but I also know that I shouldn't add too much and overdecorate or etc.. Cause sometimes less is better.

    But shit, what do I know about decoration. I'm just a 19 year old guy.

    So... can anyone in the TSL specifically link me to products I should add and where I should put it? LOL :bigthumb:

    Here are pics to my room. (I know.. I need pillows and a blanket.)

    Ikea Fredrik Computer Workstation... When I first glanced at the stock pictures, it seemed pretty shitty... So I just went to Ikea to get my bed frame.. but after checking it out in person.. I picked it up that same day.. It's a pretty good desk.. or well in my opinion it is..

    After putting it together, I did a quick search on google to see if anyone else had it and posted up their set up... a few of the folks made it look pretty nice.

    This pic here is pretty sloppy.. but at least you can get an idea of how much weight it can handle (the ikea description says it can only hold up a 19" monitor.. :o )

    As for the other replies.. I'll start looking up some framed artworks and a bookcase... if you guys have any suggestions, please feel free to link me!
