Renting your first apartment is one of those milestones in life. I have just recently had the opportunity to check this milestone off my list as I signed the lease to my first apartment. Let me just tell you that with that pen in my hand I truly felt like I was finally an adult; no parent standing over my shoulder to reassure or discourage this decision. I am on my own! Well… except that I signed the lease with one of my best friends who happens to be a single mother of a six month old boy. So essentially I guess I will never be alone… nor will the apartment ever be quiet… but it is the concept that counts!
So now that I have an apartment, I need to figure out what to do with it. I am only a poor college student rooming with an equally poor single mother who is also going to school. We have come to the fact that it is going to be a challenge to decorate our space with the little money that we have. However, I plan to live up to my sorority reputation of “Crafty Courtney” and make our little apartment feel like home!
So follow me on my journey through diy home decorating on a budget as I weigh the pros and cons of making it myself or buying it from the store. It is sure to be an adventure!
