As I have mentioned several times, I have struggled for months to get it together and start really decorating my apartment! I know what you’re saying, “We get it already! You’re busy, you’re tired, yada-yada-yada.” Not until I took this picture did I realize just how sad my apartment has looked. I mean I knew it but I didn’t really KNOW it. I have this weird thing about me that if my space isn’t decorated it doesn’t inspire me in any way; I don’t want to clean, cook, be creative, nothing. It’s like pulling teeth.
I am finally starting to make a little bit of progress! Now I have to pace myself because there’s so much I want to do and I’m starting to get anal again…lol. The first miracle of my holiday season is that I finally got a couch that I purchased nearly two years ago upholstered! I bought the couch from a thrift store for $50. It was a piece of a floral 60’s sectional. I asked my upholsterer to build a chaise for it and cover it in this charcoal/grey fabric. For various reasons it took forever to get done, but I’m SO HAPPY with it. Mad props to my mom for letting me keep the couch in her garage for so long!
There are a couple of new editions here I will break down for you later but for now I wanted to show you my progress…and of course my little Charlie Brown Christmas tree. Have a wonderful wonderful holiday. Lots of love to you and yours.
