Out of the South and into the City

Building My Bedroom

A week ago, I was moving off of my brother’s couch and into my new apartment.

And this is what my room looked like…

ImageTrust me, this didn’t last long. The next day the Ikea guys came to assemble the furniture (what, you thought I was going to do that myself?) and I was able to start unpacking.

Now, after seven days and a million trips to Bed Bath and Beyond, my room looks like this…


Much better.

The rest of the place is coming together as well, but I at least have a space to work, space to sleep and space to call my own.

One of the first problems I faced was the lack of lighting in my room. To solve that issue, I decided to make a headboard out of christmas lights.


My inspiration came from a DIY headboard that I saw on Pinterest. Even though mine isn’t exactly like the picture, for now I am happy with the way it turned out. Maybe I’ll upgrade later on.

If you have any other apartment projects/inspiration, feel free to send it my way, we are still decorating!
