Look Out, Craigslist.

I've had the luxury of being home over the last couple weeks. I got busy with my jobs and forgot that I never really finished decorating my little pad. So. Someone flipped a switch in my head and I've gone deco-nuts.

Last night - I looked over at my table and decided I didn't like it so I sold it on Craigslist this afternoon. Now I am looking for what I originally wanted (a 1950's chrome and formica - preferably yellow - set) and won't settle for anything less. Like this:

I also want a new couch. Unfortunately I want this couch:

...I may have to wait a while.

And to go with the sweet couch - I may need this sweet bookcase:

I know it's a lot of red - but the entire apartment is WHITE as white can be and needs a splash of color. I may have come up with an alternative to the white and it involves stretching a some fab-fabric over a homemade frame to cover a big chunk of white wall in my nook/kitchen (it's a can barely compartmentalize anything).

This is a relatively self-indulgent post. This is what happens when you have a lot of ideas and no money to fund them...

Maybe I'll redecorate my blog? More people see that than my apartment.

argh this is like my college apartment, it's HUGE, and my roommates and I got caught up with school so it's like, half decorated. whenever our friends step in, all they see is a huge white living room with one black couch, facing a coffee table with a tiny TV on top. we have to get cracking on that.
