My boyfriend and I moved into an apartment at the beginning of April. It has been super super exciting and fun, but also really stressful and lots of work. (as many exciting and fun things in life are)
We decided to paint the ENTIRE apartment before we moved in, which was easy because we didn't have a set time to be out of our old places (parents are pretty chill that way) BUT it also meant that there was tons of work up front before we even got to the "loading everything you own stuffed into boxes into a car, over and over" part.
baby's got a brand new blue bathroom.
Before we moved we spent a lot of time holding paint swatches up in home depot trying to decide what would be less annoying on a wall. It's the kind of thing I totally live for, but it's also fairly worrisome, because let's face it. Even if we hated it, we knew we wouldn't be repainting it.
Such is the case with our above bedroom color. I was going for a "soft mint" but instead ended up with some kind of pastel green. Other then feeling like I live in a baby nursery, it's kind of starting to grow on me.
Luckily, the more I start to unpack - the more it starts to feel like home. Realistically with my schedule, it's going to take me a least a few more weeks (months?) to unpack and get everything set up exactly how we want, but patience is a good virtue for me to practice. I'm looking forward to sharing more pictures as soon as I don't find myself living stacked among boxes.
