Finally! The Apartment!

I finally got some batteries for camera so I can post pictures! My camera died on my Saturday after I took all the pictures, so I couldn't get them off the camera.

Anywho!

Here we go!

Front door of my building:

View of the pretty neighborhood street, from the front door of my building:

You've come in the front door, now you're heading up a few stairs to my front door:

You've come in the front door. You first see the hallway (note the coat closet and built in cabinet and drawers):

The living room, as seen from the dining room. Front door is there on your left:

Dining room. Well, actually just my beautiful new dining room table (and that door on the right - that leads down another stairway to the laundry room and storage):

My "office". Where I'm sitting right now:

From the dining room, to the left, is the kitchen with a very bright, south facing window:

Tiny little fridge, but tons of cabinets in this kitchen:

So now, turn around and go back down the hallway. At the end of the hallway, turn right. Now you see the bathroom, with it's beautiful greenish/bluish tile (and nice bright shower curtain, compliments of mom):

Note the lack of cabinetry (but the clever use of the towel bar to hang my hair dryer and straightener):

Now leave the bathroom, go across the hall and you're in the bedroom. With the BRAND NEW BED that was delivered this morning:

And the closet (note the heat vent.....up at the ceiling. What's the thought process there?):

And this is an older photo, from last weekend, but I wanted to prove that my shoes are labeled and organized:


They are now put away nicely in the closet. I still don't know what to do with the two bins of boots.

You're right - the green Ikea chairs have GOT TO GO! I'm very glad that a friend has given you four antique chairs that match the table. Hope you get them soon and then you can post another picture. And the bluish/greenish tile in the bathroom isn't that bad. Lots of ways to bring that color out . . . . .

Your apartment building is so cute on the outside! And the inside looks great - looks like new! I'm so happy you're in and getting settled. I love it! One thing - why are your shoes in containers and labled??? The containers are clear - you can see what's inside. I think you have a problem! ;>)

Haha! My mom's comment about your shoes made me laugh. You are too funny :)

I love your new apartment! It looks very bright and sunny. Glad you're getting all settled!

She gets it honestly from her mother, who is so organized I've been told that - well, never mind what I've been told! But it's always good to be organized Diane!
