As promised, here are picture of my new studio apartment. It was tough going from a whole house to 400 sq ft, but I think it turned out quite nice. It is cozy, but that is not necessarily a bad thing; it will make me keep it nice and clean.
I set up everything to make three areas: living, bedroom and kitchen. My kitchen is super tiny so I refinished a little cupboard for some extra storage. (hmm, this might be a future Monday post...) Luckily with the added storage of the cupboard and cart (Great buy from Target!) I was able to find a place for all of my cooking and baking supplies.
I am in love with the practicality of my table and stools combo. The stools fit right under the table, out of the way but easily accessible. I picked the set up at an estate sale for cheap and then gave them a minor facelift with the paint.
Finally, check out the sweet hexagon shelves my Dad and I built together. They are simple pine boards cut at a 60 degree angle and nailed together and painted steel blue. I sadly did not document the process but if you want some steps, message me and I will gladly send some to you. They were very simple to build and make a fun place to display some of my trinkets. It is not "home" until I have a glass ballerina and a jar of buttons.
