I'm in my new apartment and stealing internets, so sshhhh! We have to be sneaky!
Okay, not really, but I'm excited to have internet, no matter how I get it!
So the new place is gorgeous, and keeps surprising me on it's size. I've moved a bunch of stuff in, including my bed, a new old couch and chair, so I have places to sleep and places to sit. Very important in a new place.
Hit the jackpot at the thrift stores today and yesterday, hauling home a couch, wingback chair (they clash against each other horribly, and against the rug
I picked up the other day. It's so awesome.), on tall and one short lamp, a bunch of dishes and bowls and assorted other thingers for the kitchen, and an old scale that I think is from the 50's that's going to match my bathroom beautifully!
But oh, the bathroom. I lucked out, the kitchen is all re-done, with new appliances. The downside of this is that I have the original 1950's (pink) bathroom, that is very (pink) rough around the edges, and oh, did I mention pink? The tub, surrounding tiles, and sink are all this light shade of pink that screams 1950's.
And if the 2+ hours it took to clean the tiles and tub are any indication, it hasn't been cleaned since then, either.
Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating, but they were pretty awful. I wish I'd taken a before and after picture, but I forgot my camera. :( Still, it was worth the work, because the tiles are gleaming again, and they actually look quite nice! I don't mind the pink at all, especially if I do the black accents that I'm considering. The best part, though, was finally having the shower I've been lusting for all day. There was no way
I was going in that thing before it was thoroughly scrubbed.
Anywho, I'm to bed. So pooped. And so much to do tomorrow. While I adore moving in, moving truly is for the birds.
