Miss Mustard Seed: French Chair Makeover: "I have coveted and longed for and sighed over French chairs for years. They were always too expensive for me. This fall...it was..."

Out With the Old, In With the Yellow!

The green circles mark the things that are currently UNDER CONSTRUCTION! The red square was an idea that I had to paint the entire wall "cherry tree red" but I realized that I want to have the focal points in the room be small accessories and keep the walls a neutral aesthetic that serves as a canvas for all other pieces. Also, the red lantern and throw are left overs from my red, silver, and white Christmas theme; soon these will be replaced with a yellow throw and some other yellow centerpiece for that side table.

First Apartment Fun

So, we all know that a person's home reflects who they are, but sometimes that can be hard when you share that space for expression with 3 other people. Sometimes compromises must be made in order to ensure a tolerable and cohesive living environment. So I have been doing my best to make our home a great place to come home to without forcing my roommates to live with ALL of my ideas. This is my attempt to make our house a home.

It is now my attempt to keep y'all updated on the progress of this adventure, both the progression of the apartment and of my skill level. Keep checkin' in to see what I have come up with.

I have had a surge of craft/decorating blog obsession blossom in my interest and it has inspired me to continue to be thrifty, crafty, and creative. My apartment (that I share with 3 other college students) has been the guinea pig to my experimental mind. Having most of my influences come from blogs, it dawned on me that I should funnel my new found love into a blog, so that I can chronicle my growth as a creative artist in my newest conduit.

So for the next few days, my blog will be under construction and I will be creating a new craft/decor blog from the point of view of a busy, penny-pinching college student.
