I LOVE my little apartment. It is the perfect first home for us two little newlyweds. And by little, I mean tiny.
It's a one room basement apartment (main room, bathroom, bedroom) in the home of one of our professors. They are the sweetest family and the best neighbors! With low ceilings and less then 500 sq ft, storage and decorating can be a challenge. And then add our small, newlywed college student budget and things get a little harder.
This series, Small Space Living, will cover my decorating, organizing, and shopping ideas to help you live in your small space cheaply, comfortably and beautifully!
My first secret: I do A LOT of thrifting. This saves me money and i find original items and i usually dont mind repainting or tearing apart these cheap finds to make new things. Below: all my picture frames are thrifted and repainted, the candle sticks were a grage sale find, the cake plate/cheese plate was a thrift store find, etc. It hard to look anywhere in my home and not see something that is secondhand! I LOVE IT!
Since my last decorating post I have already changed things up!
I got bored with all white walls, and though I'm sure they would have let us paint it would have taken far too long for my impatient self, so for my first apartment decorating trick....
