Thanks to April from Studio Strategos for the name of this post! Before I moved all my things in, I wanted to paint over the dingy-looking walls and even had a little help from my Dad.
By now, most of the “important” unpacking has happened – the kitchen has food and utensils, the bathroom has things that smell good and keep me clean, there are a few places to sit, yada yada. The most exciting part of unpacking in a new place is personalizing it and making it cute!
I’ve got a “few” things that I like to hang on the walls and I got most of them put up this week. My new place actually comes with a little fireplace and mantel and so, naturally, that’s what got decorated first.
A few pieces of the art found in my home were made by my friend Monty, some I made myself (photographs, knitting, etc) and others were given to me by family and friends.
What’s your favorite part of moving into a new place?
