looks good for a student place. one recommendation, hide your media/SNES (great choice), and put your goddamn comic books away, kid.

that makes sense. i've recently painted fresh dry wall, plaster, and my girlfriend's gallery, so that hasn't come up too much.

+1. Taping is a huge pain.

+1 Though I'd probably want a slightly large desk.

That ikea ps cabinet is one of the best pieces of furniture ikea has ever put out, imho. It's extremely versatile and they have it in fire truck red.

clean space, nice work on the shelving unit placement.

The last few places I've rented have had textured painted walls and ceilings. If the hole is anything larger than a quarter you notice the lack of texture. If I try and texturize it myself, it looks like shit. So I just sort of feather out away from the hole in a wide radius.

If your walls are super textured (like when you do it intentionally and not just some bad-painting orange peel), I would guess you might have to try some ninja-spackling...

Use the texture to your advantage and sort of inject some spackle into the hole and sort of push at it with something like the sanded smooth and round end of a chopstick (instead of applying with a putty knife which always leaves you a circle around the hole). The goal here would be to only fill the hole and worry less about getting it perfectly flush to the wall. This way, when you paint over it, it will blend in just like the coin sized spackle spot blends in with a non-textured wall (you just want to avoid that "look, I just slapped paint over a nail hole thinking it would take care of it" look.

fuck osgood, that's awesome! do you have a link to the wallpaper on your iMac?

Looks good. Is that a Super NES? Sort of cute I guess but pretentiously displaying it alongside neatly stacked vintage Mad Magazines is trying awfully hard, isn't it?

I'm guessing it's where it is because he plays it on that tv.

You are probably right. I will have to consider that.. I play the nintendo every now and then, but I could just as well put in inside the cabinet, however I also like the look of it, so why hide it? Same thing with the magazines really, I like the covers. But it sure looks a bit pretentious, which I dont like at all . I dont know. Maybe it is the neatly stacking that makes it "trying to hard"...

i like it. much better than placing neatly stacked copies of classic books like Lolita and Dorian Gray. I will comment and say that it makes your room look like a showcase in a sample home. Since I like to play my consoles on the average showing them like that would be ideal, still would hide several of them but for you it works out fine.
