Apartment Therapy Update

Weeks 3 and 4 are all about clearing out clutter and creating a landing strip.

ha. Ok, that’s totally not my house, but I can dream, right?? Anyway….

Last week we totally rearranged our living room, which is now a lot cozier, altho there are still a couple final touches to be added in the next week. I also cleaned out the coat closet and went thru a couple other boxes and cabinets, ultimately taking 3 giant bags of goods to the thrift store to be re-used. That felt good! I want to paint the inside of the coat closet a bright color, but that will also have to wait a week.

I’m still working on the landing strip and trying to disguise the fact that we have no foyer, and having moderate success with both. I’m jtrying to decide if I should get another Expedit bookshelf from Ikea. The cubbies would be perfect for baskets of mail, Wayne’s stuff when I need to madly clean the house, and our shoes since we’re going to try going with a no-shoes-in-the-house policy. (hopefully we’ll get used to that before our new floors go down) Right now, an antique drop-leaf table is marking it’s place, which works, but I could use that table in my studio…

Pictures of the finished product will come soon, but for now, more inspiration! I’m totally painting our coat closet door chalkboard!
