Okay, so it's been nearly a year since I blogged. As usual, I've been busy. "Doing what," you say? We'll save that for a different day. For now, let's remember to learn from mistakes, forgive yourself (and others) quickly, and celebrate success! I have a few REALLY cool things to share. Today, I want to share a look at my new space. Check it out!!!
Clearly, this is my rad living room. Well, part of it anyhow. Also, this is the most comfortable couch on the planet.
My super rad coffee table made of a piece of driftwood from the Arkansas River topped with fossilized stone.
And here's the another part of my living room! It's super loooong, so it's hard to get the entire space in one picture. This area I intend to use as kind of an office type area. Or maybe not. Who knows?
So, the kitchen and living room are divided by this cute little wall. It blocks the sunlight, but whatever. I like living in cave. :)
Yes, you would be correct in assuming this is the kitchen. It has a shit ton of storage space. So much that I can't even use it all! My washer and dryer are just to the left of the cabinets. I think you can see part of the washer in this picture. How cool, a cottage with a washer and dryer?
I only looked at this space once before signing the lease. I saw it and immediately knew I had to have it. It was perfect for me!!! Somehow, I managed to completely look over the shelf that was already installed that works perfectly for my stainless steel pots and pans.
This is part of my bedroom. I stalked the shit out of this comforter at Target for about 3 months. A few weeks back, before I even moved, I found it on clearance!!! Marked down from $75.00 to $20.00!! I snagged it up! And wouldn't you know, I already had these gorgeous purple drapes from a previous house in Indianapolis. It looks gorgeous!!
It also doesn't hurt that the walls are a gorgeous green (one of my favorite colors!!!). It's a total Ange Cave. Comfy, cute, and cozy. Don't mind the mismatched rug....
One of the best things about my new place, is the amount of build in storage. This space fits ALL of my cds and gives me room to put decorations on the top. Although, I'm not much for knick-knack type of stuff, so for now it just has a few concert memorabilia, a few pictures, and some other random things.
Again, another view of my bedroom and it's massive amounts of storage space. This closet stretches the entire length of my bedroom!! There's a ton of stuff in there!!!
This is the space that separates the kitchen and living room from my bedroom and bathroom.
Did I mention there's a ton of storage in my new space? Cause there totally is. These drawers are functioning as my linen closet and dresser right now. It works until I can find a dresser I actually want. Oh look, there's the back door, sneaking into the picture...
My bathroom is tiny!! But, thank goodness for lots of storage!!!
The door and the shelving behind it kind of blocks the bathroom a bit, so it's hard to get a picture of the whole thing. Also, those shower doors? NO. I'm going to ask if I can take them out. I think it'll really open the space up, which is desirable!
Last but not least, this is my new key hook! I always want to have a space (the same space) where I keep my keys, so I will always know where they are. The other day, I visited World Market and found this little guy. It's perfect...and know I'll always know where my keys are.
That's just an intro to my space. I also have a private patio AND there's a shared communal area where I can try my hand at growing veggies next year. I can't wait!!! I've met all of my neighbors now, except one. I'm sure it won't take long and I'll catch him or her to introduce myself. It's such a great feeling to have my own space.
Cheers to celebrating success!!!!
