First of all, I love the song "I Walked In" by Brougham. Can't Hardly Wait may be my favourite movie from my teenage years and I basically lived with the soundtrack on repeat (that and Whatever It Takes. Shane West is my still my soulmate).
Where was I?
I am desperate for a house. I miss getting ready for the day at my antique vanity (but it's too fragile, in my opinion, to move it too often, so it's in "storage" at my parents). I can't wait to be able to have a separate room for guests and for Scott's office. And a garage to store shovels and lawn chairs? I may dream about that at night.
But we're not there yet. We're working towards it, but it's a process. So in the meantime, this in between time? It's about making do. And the best way to be happy with what you've got? Make the most of it!
I set out to rearrange our space, now that my Macbook is replacing my desktop, as I won't be needing a formal desk space. But of course, as things shift around in the apartment, our lack of organization becomes apparent. And as you give everything its own little spot, the lack of character becomes obvious.
So over the next few weeks, I hope to accomplish many small projects on an EXTREME budget. Like less than $50 for an entire apartment.
And to give you an idea of some of the awesome projects I have ahead, this is one of the two end tables I picked up this last weekend for $5.98. Total. Yay! They're a little rough around the edges (literally) but I have a plan!
