If you read my previous entry you’ll already know that I’m trying to redecorate my entire apartment in an attempt at a fresh start. I’m happy to report that it has been going pretty well so far! A little slower than I would like, but it has been fun and we’re starting to make some real progress. Right now we’re focusing on cleaning, organizing, and painting. You know, the grueling stuff.
Even though the apartment looks like a war zone it definitely feels like a new place. It’s amazing how much of a difference new paint and reorganizing can change a space, and with everything currently out of sorts it definitely has that “just moved in” feeling.
Right now I’m working on the dining room. The first thing I did was pick a new color for my front door. I have this thing for colorful front doors, but I live in an apartment building so I can’t change the way the outside of mine looks. That doesn’t mean I can’t change the way the inside does! Here’s what it looked like before:
I loveeee it! I really think it brightens everything up and makes it feel more fresh and airy. We also painted over our stenciled walls with new bright white paint and sold our dining chairs and bought new ones. I’m currently on the hunt for wall decor to finish off the space but I love the way it’s coming along!
Stay tuned for more progress updates soon!
