So much has happened since we last spoke.
I applied for a job… a dream job…
I got an interview.
Then a whole lot of silence.
Three weeks have past…
I think it’s safe to say I didn’t get the gig.
I made plans to purchase my mom’s used Toyota Echo for a reasonable amount of nickles and dimes. So once I have a full physical done on “Miss Blue”, I’ll be mobile with my first car…
How did I make it this long?
I got news that my living situation was going to need to change (it’s all good though… happy reasons) and therefore I went on the apartment hunt. With my second set of eyes/responsible-budget-conscious-gonna-be-spending-a-lot-of-time-at-my-new-digs partner, we found me a fantastic 1 bedroom apartment in my current neighbourhood within my budget that I’ll be officially moving into for June 1st (unofficially, the weekend before).
Hence, my current obsession with Pinterest and all things used furniture/small space decor.
Fortunately my family and friends have been overwhelmingly generous and I almost have the entire apartment furnished already.
But I’m not stopping there. For those of you out there in the world who know me well, I am not satisfied to simply acquire furniture and allow it to remain in it’s inherited state.
This blogger is a closet home decor/furniture refurbishing junkie.
Hand me some sandpaper, primer, and a paintbrush and I will be going to town on this furniture.
Oh, but it doesn’t stop there.
I’ve been blessed with crafty family too and a healthy dose of DIY confidence.
Curtains, cushions, upholstered headboard…
It’s like crack to me.
Stay tuned for some out of this world before and afters.
So while I may still be on the job search for August, I’m moving in the right direction towards adulthood and independence.
Here are some of the ideas I’ve come across for DIY inspiration:
