So if you've been following me, you would already know that my daughter Mori [that chic who models all my designs] moved into her very first apartment last November. So apparently it takes us a little over a year to decorate a bedroom! I know what you must be thinking but let me break it down for ya.
When Mori moved out the only things she had were her mattress set and a 40" flat screen TV. She had a little saved up to buy somethings but when we started shopping for her furniture reality set in that "she didn't have money to buy all the things that she WANTED. I gave her a bed frame, kitchen table & chairs and a few other things for Christmas. She financed her living room furniture and with the little money she had left bought a few necessities. The well was dry!
As you can imagine by this time she had already had to make her first rent payment and boy was that a rude awakening for her. She was like Mom, I just got paid and I don't have any money left. I said welcome to the real world honey. So I say all that to say this, she realized she was not going to be able to buy the things she had in mind all at once, she had to buy them when she could, whenever she had a few spare dollars.
Now here is where having me as a mom paid off for her. I did several DIY projects for her apartment and I was picking things up here and there for her. I would see something and say oh my that is cute and I know exactly where it can go in Mori's apartment. I was buying so many things I had to get myself in check. I said "Michelle this is not your apartment STOP shopping for her", sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't. All I know is I had a little boutique in my garage with all the things I was buying. Sooooooo now you know WHY it took us a little over a year to get this bedroom done. But if I do say so myself it was worth the wait. Her apartment is almost complete, just need curtains in the living-room and kitchen and a few nic-nacks. [I swear I am not buying anything else even though I saw these really cute curtains...] OK now you can go ahead and enjoy her new bedroom.
Here are all the posts with projects for this apartment
