Oh my gosh! This was such an exciting weekend… my apartment finally got some much needed TLC. I can’t really begin to tell you how bad my apartment has been lately. It’s never been good, but it was bad.
I’m doing a post with Target and I got a huge shipment, included a big bookcase. I bribed Garrett and his friend Kenny to put it together. And that’s where it started.
Then I had this massive bookshelf and no where to put it. So what’s a girl to do? Tackle the task that I’ve been literally putting off since I moved in… two years ago. I signed my lease again for another year and I couldn’t live in my glorified dorm room without a little updating.
Why did it take me so long to do it? Partly because I’m really bad about having a “vision” for what I want and then partly because I’m a perfectionist and would rather not do it than do it in a way I don’t like.
Luckily, Garrett has this hidden talent of gallery walls and interior design and he took the lead. (I vacuumed, dusted, handed things to him, and went on Starbucks runs for the boys… while they did the real work.)
I’m not exaggerating when I say that I cried when it was all over. The stack of frames that’s been sitting on my floor for two years? They’re up! The books that were literally on every inch of the tables I have? They’re on a shelf! Happy day.
I have to do a few more things, so just sneak peeks for now 😉
From my Snapchat (collegeprepster if you want more sneak peeks!).
We followed up the hours of work on Saturday night with late night appetizers at The Smith… and back to work on Sunday!
We went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond (disappointing) and The Container Store (#mecca) to pick up some more pieces to organize my bathroom and closet. Love carrying my Maptote bag around the city for errands.
Why is organizing jewelry so tricky?! Sheesh. Too many necklaces and bracelets, not enough space!
Phew! It really was a productive weekend. Can’t wait to show you more!!!
