Moving my entire life from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 4 bedroom house has kept me quite busy, to say the least. It seems there is always something to be done here, and just when I feel like I’ve accomplished something, another task swoops down in my face, announcing its incompleteness like a half-eaten donut just waiting to be devoured. But, like a good donut, these tasks are more sweet than laborious. Hanging art, stringing lights, potting plants…the sweets of summertime moving.
The most exciting bit about this move, though, is that I have a new roommate: my boyfriend! He hasn’t moved in quite yet, but give it a few weeks and we’ll be en route to the blissful, difficult, just-moved-in-together life that is waking up next to your favorite person every day. That, my friends, is what I’m really looking forward to. Beyond excited.
In the meantime, le boyfriend and I have been antiquing, flea marketing, and DIY-ing up a storm, determined to make this place feel homey and like “us”. One of my favorite projects so far was spray painting that blue shelf in the first photo. It was a hand-me-down from Kevin’s mom, a gorgeous piece whose chipping white paint needed a bit of TLC. It was Kevin’s idea to paint it blue, my first time attempting a spray paint, and now one of our most prized transformation pieces thus far! I think it pairs really well with that J.M. Barrie print, a gift from a dear friend on the opening night of Peter Pan.
I’ll share more photos as our decorating process continues. That’s all for now. Happy Monday, cats.
