Well, I’m back already because today marks one month since getting our keys. Since getting our keys we…
- stayed at the hotel three more nights before realizing I couldn’t stand it any longer and my loving husband agreed
- slept in sleeping bags for four nights before our beds arrived
- spent ten days back in Ohio without Jared picking up our cats (and doing many other things)
- received our pod the day before driving out to Ohio which meant boxes packed in the living room
- received our couch on day 23
- lasted until our pod AND our couch got here without any seats at all
- have taken many walks
So! Let’s get down to pictures and defeat the Huns.
I didn’t clean up just for you. Special, right?
Here is the entry closet that I didn’t show before. Crooked picture!
Our beds! As I mentioned last time, we went all Family Bedroom. Since Kaelyn slept on our rug in our room the majority of the time, we decided it was not a wise use of space to have her own room. We went with Japanese futons and have the ability to fold them up and have more space.
Sleeping in one room means we all share the closet. Somehow it works.
Master bathroom mostly just to show off the shower curtain that I found that just goes perfectly with our colors for our apartment.
It appears that I’m missing my photo of the fireplace wall so this will have to do. I’m annoyed at how yellow the walls look. They are getting painted mostly so they aren’t flat paint. It will be a very similar color but with less of a yellow undertone. Oogle my couch and rug. Go on. It’s okay.
Kitchen and dining room together. One day I’ll show you inside the kitchen cabinets. I’m pretty proud of them. For now, this is just messy.
And here’s another closet I didn’t show you before that is between the second bathroom and the multi-purpose room.
The second bathroom with the rug from Kaelyn’s bedroom she just couldn’t part with. (But really, pink isn’t in my color scheme here.) Oh, and the shower curtain followed us from Ohio too. Its colors are also perfect.
This room has received the least amount of love… until Saturday! Well… next week probably.
Yeah, totally sitting in a kid chair at a kid desk while typing this up. UNTIL SATURDAY. (I mean… next week.)
Clearly, I haven’t done much decorating. I’ve done a lot of “what goes where” and keeping things calm. It’ll be a while before I do pictures of the whole apartment again. I’m excited to finish the boxes and showcase some areas better. And get pictures up! I have one build project for sure (a collapsible sewing table) and another potential one (dining room table and chairs). If we find what we want (counter height, no black, preferably round) at the right price point (not $1500), then great. But I’m not really having much luck there so I’ll possibly build the table (in which case, it would probably be square, not round) and either buy chairs (toying with upholstered chairs) or make (probably not upholstered then). But none of those are hurry items. Getting my books out of boxes is much more necessary.
