I graduated high school in 2003. College in 2007. Grad school in 2010. I got engaged a little later in 2010 and began planning a wedding. Well, I've been married for a month and I know that I cannot just sit at home with my wonderful husband and watch TV. I need a new project. I have no idea why. I've been a multi-tasking ball of stress for many years.
But, it's there--I want to redo our apartment.
I can't go overboard, mainly because we're broke, but I want to make some changes. We have a lot of hand-me-down furniture from lovely family members and some furniture brought in from our single lives and I'd like to maybe have a more cohesive home. I'd like a place that represents us. We plan on living in our apartment until we get a house, which probably won't be for 3-4 years. So, I called on our friend, Emily, whose blog you should totally be reading. Seriously, go check it out. Girl is talented and funny.
Anyway, she came up with a mood board for our living room and I'm in love. Brad is even OK with wanting to paint the apartment. A lot can be DIY projects and I've been petitioning for a new couch since before the wedding. You can see Emily's ideas for us here. Please, let me know what you think.
I know I'll keep you updated on our progress and I can't wait to see Emily do an "After" post when we've got it looking good.
I know I can't be alone in my need for a project. After you let go of one ball of stress (college, second job, wedding, etc.) what did you take on next?
