m.i.a.

So, I’ve been M.I.A. lately and I apologize for that. My new apartment is the reason for that though šŸ™‚ At least it’s an exciting reason right?!?! My place is pretty fantastic though, I’m not gonna lie. It’s some friends of ours mother-in-law suite and it is HUGE!!

Lucky for me, they gave the floors an overhaul before I moved in. It was carpeted before, we’re talking mauve in the bedroom and blue in the living room, I could’ve worked with it but it certainly wasn’t my choice. Originally they had told me they were having new carpet put in, but to my surprise they ended up doing a dark laminate hardwood & let me tell you, it is gorgeous!!! I also go to paint any color I wanted. The kitchen I left navy blue. The living room went from beige with a red wall to gray. And the bedroom went from sage green to aqua with an aqua & white striped wall.

The kitchen also has a antique dresser that I turned into an island complete with a stainless steel top šŸ™‚ It’s gorgeous!! I also now have an antique buffett for my entertainment center (there will be pictures of that at some point) and while I love it in the original finish, I want to paint that too, just not sure what color yet. I have some pretty bold colors in the living room, orange pillows, 2 orange dining chairs, a muted lime(ish) green & off white rug, plus the pop of the lime green from the island that’s currently sitting as a divider between the kitchen & living room with a red stool behind it. I have another stool to paint & I’m trying to pick the color for that as well.

My dad is working on refinishing the top of the dining table, and above that we’re construcing a swag lamp from an antique hanging lamp. I’ll have tons of posts to come just with some of these projects!! Yay!! Along with food posts too!! It’s quite exciting around here right now šŸ™‚ But for now, here’s some before & after pics for you. Enjoy!
