My apt is officially a 2 bedroom place, but the 2nd bedroom is about the size of my hand. Because of my lack of closet space in the apt, the 2nd bedroom has pretty much turned into a closet. I'm finally starting to sort it out and hopefully slowly transform this tiny space into an office/music room/closet. First thing I did was put together a little make shift desk bought from Ikea and set up a desk top computer. At Ikea I picked up a basic white table top and got these legs. It's temporary, but it looks good enough till I find that perfect desk that I not only like the way it looks, but also fits in the tiny as hell 2nd bedroom. I'm super excited to finally have an actual work space. It's so nice to be able to close the door and to not be on the couch with the TV in site.
So a little over a month ago Alison from Etsy asked me to put together a little Valentines Day gift guide of things to get your man. I had a great time doing it and was pleasantly surprised at all of the incredible items I found both vintage and hand made. Thanks Etsy, thanks Matt, and thank you Alison. Check out my post here.
So today I put together this shelf for the living room. I had the pipes for a couple of years left over from an old apartment and figured I would finally put them to use. I screwed an old task lamp to the shelf, threw an old photo of Diamond Head, and a tiny Jade plant on it and that's about it. I found the task lamp at a flea a few years ago and I think it's from the 1950s, although I'm not certain. I need to accessorize the shelf a bit but I think I like it. Next on my list for the living room is getting a new rug. I have had this one for maybe 5 or 6 years. It's super soft and held up really well but I got it way before I got the sofa and now the room is so gray and I'm just really tired of it.
