This is not a whine about what is going on in my life. This is a post about working with what you have. We moved into this apartment in October of 2009, most of the time when we move into a new place, I quickly get it decorated. I don’t know what it was this time but I didn’t get that done. I mean I didn’t just do nothing but, I didn’t put my heart into. I have been staring at these 2 large blank walls in my living room, they need something but I had no clue where to start. Then today I woke up with inspiration on how to conquer one of the walls. So after a couple of hours of digging through boxes everything I needed was located. I can’t forget to mention that part of the inspiration was brought on by Lauren and the awesome lamp shade and lamp she gave me yesterday that no longer go with her home. So when you have a budget of Zero but need to make changes, look around at what you have that you aren’t using and see if it can fit your needs.
I already had the bench/table I got it out of my mom’s storage unit, she used it as a coffee table(perfect height and width) to not overwhelm a small living room. We use it right in our front door, to sit my bag when I come in. The lamp is mentioned above, but Thanks again Lauren.
I love pictures of friends and family, I prefer snapshots to professional studio portraits, and I maybe obsessed with photo booths. Nothing I wrote about today cost me anything but some of my time.
So as you can tell I love the feeling of lived, shabby chic. So any ideas on low budget toddler room ideas? Cause right now all he has is furniture and an I and G hanging above his bed. I need help in there bad.
