Remember when I first got married and was OBSESSED with putting together our apartment?
Welp, the nesting bug is back and in full force.
I’m not entirely sure what brought it on, but I have a feeling my new love affair with home improvement blogs isn’t helping.
I swear, I could lose myself in those things for hours. People are just so darn crafty! It makes me wish I had taken wood shop class so I could finale a jigsaw, or at the very least pursued home ec for another semester in middle school (never learned how to use a sewing machine…it is one of my top five biggest regrets).
But what I really, REALLY wish? That I could just paint my apartment.
Do you have any idea the kind of transformation you can bring about with just a couple coats of paint?? According to the dozens of “before and after” posts I’ve been inhaling, you will basically end up with a brand new room.
My wish list for our next apartment now looks like this:
1. Washer and dryer
3. Allows dogs
4. Allows painting
5. Disposal in the kitchen sink
For now, I’m contesting myself with finally getting the last two pieces of furniture I wanted and finally hanging some pictures and things on the walls.
Part of my motivation is that we’re having company the next two weekends (cousins the first, a friend from Nebraska the second), and you know how I get with wanting to impress people.
So I guess I’ll temper the obsession with blogs and surface changes until we get a place we can actually leave a mark on. Anyone have a blog to recommend? (Don’t say Apartment Therapy. Obviously I know that one.)
