Sam the Builder

I've been at my new apartment for about 3 weeks, and I am loving it. Moving is a major pain in the arse, as I literally had nothing but my bed and clothes when I moved in. Instead of shopping for bags and shoes, my recent purchases were a couch, a vacuum cleaner, a shower rod and dishes. Not extremely exciting, but my place is coming together and I enjoy the adulty feeling of the entire process!

The guys showing me the apartment turned out to be a super cute couple who were Fergie's hairstylist and wardrobe assistant. And the first thing thing they showed me was prefaced with "OK OMG DON'T FREAK OUT OK!" They opened these closet doors to reveal...a bed. A murphy bed. Hmm...Upon signing my lease, I knew that the murphy bed had to go.

With the murphy bed closet now empty, I had a project on my hands. What was I going to do with this space? There was only one thing to do.

Build a home for my shoes!

Look at how happy they are.

On the left side is my shoe closet. On the right side, I have a dresser. The stain of the shelves doesn't match the dresser, so I might exchange the shelves, but so far, I am too lazy, and I actually kind of like the mismatchedness. I am looking for a mirror to place atop the dresser, and some track lighting across the top of the closet so I can do my makeup and hair. Thanks Daddy for helping me with this :)


Eeeeee!

Cuteness. What a good way to use the space. Somehow I think you're either 1. holding back on showing your shoe collection or 2. you haven't finished unpacking :)

Congrats on the new apt!
