The Nook

This is the current state of our dining nook. Please note the cat scratching post, vacuum, and lack of chairs. In 2 months time (or less) this will be the cutest damn nook you ever did see.

(repainting the bathroom with chalkboard paint)

Who let's applying to grad school for two separate programs, 3 summer vacations, making an record, quitting my job, and other pending serious financial obligations get in the way of updating their home? Honey, living beyond your means is an art form.


Repainting the apartment. We are going with the color on the right.

Installing a new light fixture because I can't stand this one anymore. We are also going to install a dimmer on the switch.

This is our "pantry." We are going to put 5 shelves here, with brackets, but all painted the same color as the wall so that it blends nicely. The dresser will be disposed of and promptly burned in the alley.

View from upstairs.
