Finally an apartment update! It’s been a long time coming, I know, but I’m SO excited to share with you guys!! Everything is almost finished and I’m SO happy. At this point it’s pretty much just adding small touches and decorations– all the big stuff is done! I’m really happy with how everything is turning out. It’s so fun to see my vision coming to life! The decorating process is definitely a challenge (especially on a tight budget), but I think I did pretty well with a mixture of free pieces from my family and budget friendly pieces.
For my bedroom (see my inspiration here) I really just wanted everything to be light and bright. I also knew I really wanted a desk area to work at and keep organized, and I love how it turned out! I used Ikea shelves and painted part of them gold for a fun touch to go along with my (super cheap) Ikea desk. My dresser was a hand me down from my aunt (although we added the gold pulls, DIY coming soon), but everything else I bought pretty much. My faux fur rug and mid-century chair really make it a fun space!
My upholstered bed was also something I REALLY wanted, but didn’t want to spend a ton of money on. I found this one on Amazon for super cheap (only $60!!!) and I’m so happy with it! I’ve actually been buying quite a few things for the apartment on Amazon and it’s been so nice. Amazon Prime has been my best friend lately!!
I’m still not finished with my room by any means– I’m waiting on more throw pillows (light pink velvet which I’m SO excited about) and maybe some more decor on the walls. We’ll see! But for now, I’m happy with my little space. It finally feels like home.
