apartment update

ok, it’s finally time to update you guys on our apartment progress! it’s been so long since i posted the before photos and layout of our apartment before we moved in, moving day, and then progress after i got settled.

now brad’s all moved in and some rooms have changed quite a bit, and some not so much! so here we go….

first, the entryway!

that’s where capones gigantic water jug and food dish sit. and there’s also a little rug to put our shoes on when we come in the door.

*

across from the front door is the laundry closet.

this is pretty much the same. washer/dryer, recycling, (brad’s grandma’s ancient) vacuum cleaner, a bag for plastic shopping bags (aka: capone’s poo bags), a bag for rags, and a bag for random laundry garbage.

*

next to the laundry closet is our coat closet.

on the floor is our enormous soda stash and the bin of capone’s food. tools and a bin of capone’s treats/brush/nail clippers/etc. are on top.

*

the guest bath.

this is pretty much the same. we registered for a bunch of bathroom stuff, so this room will be more complete soon. i spent lots of time this weekend emptying the cabinets so liz & keith have plenty of room for their stuff.

*

guest bedroom.

this room looks a lot different from when i moved in!

that’s brad’s bed, brad’s desk/computer, all of brad’s chiro books on the bookshelf…

and a very empty closet (with brad’s filing cabinet). capone says, “hi”!

*

now the kitchen!

not much has changed here….

*

and our dining area – lots has changed here!

we’ve added a couple pieces of furniture in the past month. first, this lovely buffet – the replacement door arrived last week!

all of our overflow dishes will go in here. i also love that is has a wine rack. i wasted no time stocking up on some ($4) wine to fill it!

and we also bought these bar stools.

now we don’t have a naked breakfast bar anymore! i love how well the stools, the table, and the buffet match. hopefully we’ll eventually have a space with a bit bigger dining area so it won’t be so smushed together.

*

our bedroom hasn’t changed much at all besides brad taking over most of the drawers in the dresser!

and the master bath is the same too…. but the closet got a little rearranging!

we moved the cubes to be under my clothes since they’re shorter. you can see that we really filled up that closet!

*

the living room got one big upgrade….

brad’s tv is here now! i’ve got to say, i lived without a tv for almost 3 years, and it is great to have one back! i’ve been pretty good about not wasting too much time each day watching stupid shows, but it’s nice to just veg for a bit every now and then.

*

and our porch. it’s so sad right now.

porch furniture and grill are high on our list. also, we’re making a trip to the farmers’ market this afternoon to get some basil and other herbs to put in pots on the porch. at least it’ll be spruced up a bit!

i do love these lilac bushes right off of the porch though.

*

so there you go! luckily, brad and i pretty much had enough stuff to fill our apartment without either of us having to get rid of anything! 🙂

hope you enjoyed our apartment update!

do you like decorating?

there’s still so much i want to do (curtains, art for the walls, etc.), but it’s so expensive! i have a hard time spending money on decor…
