I’ve been doing a lot of decorating around our apartment and lately my focus has been with our bedroom. Since we rent, I don’t want to spend a lot of money on furniture that might be the wrong size for our next place. Plus, I don’t want to have to move a bunch of heavy pieces! Instead, I’ve been focusing on sprucing up what we already have and redoing versatile pieces that will work in any space. I have a pretty good idea of how I want our home to look, at least color-wise (lots of gray and white with pops of color and metallic accents) so I’ve been trying to take what we already have and alter it to fit that aesthetic. One of my latest projects involved an easy diy headboard.
Since we live in an apartment, there’s not a lot of storage space. Things tend to pile up everywhere if we’re not careful, and one of the worst offenders has always been our dresser. Admittedly, the mess is all mine (G uses one of the drawers but considers the rest of it my territory) so it was up to me to figure out what to do. My biggest problem was a lack of organization. It’s too easy to let magazines and paperwork pile up and as much as I try to keep all of my fancy jewelry in their respective boxes, the pieces I wear everyday usually get dropped on the dresser at the end of the night.
