A Little Peek into my Previous Apartment

Lovelies, I broke my promise that I'd show you my last apartment.  Thing is... while I did paint it and move in, I never got totally settled in or comfortable there.  And I moved out after a few months---failing to take good photos before I left.  While going through my camera, I did happen on a very few photos that offer a peek into the bedroom.  Up above is my collection of necklaces, hung on white hooks on the gray wall. (The color is Anonymous by Sherwin-Williams, HGTV Home.)
You can also see a random wire shelf that I bought for $1 at Goodwill and spray-painted green.  I happened to have a few plastic baskets from Target that matched---perfect for storing perfumes, nail polishes, and small jewelry boxes.

While this photo's original purpose was to show off my red cowgirl boots... it offers a decent shot of my bedroom as well. I definitely miss that warm shade of gray and will be re-using whenever I move into another paint-friendly apartment or house someday.  You can see my vintage French Provincial furniture.  I wasn't crazy about black curtains in this room, but I chose them more for the practicality than look.  This room was located in the lower/basement level of a split-level house---so it was all too easy if someone wanted to look in my windows.  The heavy black made sure it was peek-proof.  Plus, I scored 'em for like $5-a-panel at Lowe's... and that's a steal for curtain panels!  The colorful quilt was bought at TJ Maxx. Since it's my Spring/Summer bedding, it's not on my bed right now.  I can't wait to get it back out as soon as April rolls around!  The pillows are burlap.

In the background of this photo, you get a better look at my vintage cream furniture.  On the right is my diy canvas art created over the summer with my intern pals.  

I wish I'd documented my previous apartment bedroom better!  There's so much you can't see: my red wrought iron headboard, my typewriter, my random vintage knick-knacks.  But like I said, the place was never fully decorated or unpacked... and it was usually a mess because of that. :/  Fortunately for you, I'm working really hard to get my new room decorated and blog-worthy!  It's a bit of challenge, since it's super tiny and I'm back to white walls.  But I'm very happy here!  So I'm unpacking and here to stay.

So stay tuned!!
