Take my latest move, for example. Three-and-some-change months into life in my new apartment and I still find myself looking around and finding things to do, stuff to put away.
Will it ever stop?! Maybe.. if I would stop being so nit-picky.
On the whole, time has just not been kind since I moved in. First, there was the the settling-in period at work which (as most of you know) requires all of your time and energy to make sure you get on-boarded, make a good first impression, and - most importantly - figure out how to get to and from work without getting lost.
Then came what I like to call the "Summer Chaos", when it becomes virtually impossible to get anything done around the house.
Summer Chaos (noun): The few months of the year when there is an endless stream of weddings, vacations, weekend trips and outdoor activities.
And that brings me to today. Every day I stare at a million and one DIY ideas, and decoration, organization and furniture websites and beg for the lightbulb to come on. Here is what I have so far (should I ever partake in any of these tasks, I would imagine that there will be a self-indulgent post proclaiming my victory with millions of pictures of my accomplishment):
What girl doesn't need to combine her boxes, drawers and carrying cases of jewelry into one, easy-to-find (and easy-on-the-eyes) place? A+ in my book.
Blank bedroom walls? Not anymore! Fill up the space with different pieces that match up well with your color scheme.
Tired of the same old picture frames from IKEA? I know I am! Dig up a few vintage frames, grab some ribbon and have at it.
Wondering if I will ever embark on these DIY adventures? Me too, so I guess we will both stay tuned! To keep up with my decorating, food and style to-dos follow me on Pinterest!
