31 days – fall 2013 – making our place “home”, pt. 2

When we got married in July we knew the chances of us staying in this apartment past January were slim.  But even though we would only be here for five or six months, I wanted to make this place feel like ours. I wanted to try and use what we had {even if that meant alot of paint} before we invested in other things. I wanted this apartment to be somewhere that we loved, not just lived.

Since I’ve moved in, all our boxes have been unpacked, we’ve G has put nails in the walls, hung and rehung pictures {some are still correct orientation pictures in them, please excuse me while I twitch}, and painted 12 of the 15 pieces of furniture we own.

And after months of inhaling paint fumes, I have to say, I’m happy we didn’t wait until our next place to settle in. It’s been fun to discover each others likes and dislikes, use a sander and toolbox, and learn some things along the way.

And now we are in the process finding a new place for when we move to Augusta.  It’s crazy and exciting to think we get to do all of this again soon!

  1. I love your decorating style! I think the coffee table & green tv dresser were my favorite pieces. My husband & I just bought our 1st house so I am looking forward to discovering our style, too 🙂 Not much decorating was able to happen in a camper lol!
