The apartment is finally feeling like home with a bit of organization, art and accessories! A few peeks below:
My new place has giant new medicine cabinets in the bathroom and I knew they would be great for storage if I organized them correctly. Using various containers, jars, glasses, vintage cups, etc, I utilized every last inch of each medicine cabinet and can now access it all quickly and efficiently when getting ready.
Piles of products and tools that had to fit in the bathroom:
Initially tried the bar near the window but changed my mind later.
Had the TV on the right half of this wall and changed my mind on that too!
Rearranged! Moved the TV over to the left and brought the bar back over where it used to be in my old place.
All but a few boxes are unpacked.
After I got lucky with all of my free boxes, I paid it forward and gave them to a couple in my building who was moving out and needed boxes. So the big pile is officially gone!
There are more updates, organizing and progress in the works, so check back next week!
Use a quarter to hold doors open!
Don’t pack your tools to take apart the bed before you take apart the bed…. this made for a fun game of frantically opening up boxes at 7 am on moving day searching for the right tools I mistakenly packed weeks ago.
Moving day is over and now I’m in the midst of organizing, unpacking, styling, etc. Check out the progress of old apartment/new apartment below! These photos are all from moving day, and I’ve already started rearranging things so the next update will look a bit different. My wonderful mom decided to come to DC to help out- I wouldn’t have made this much progress without her! Stay tuned for more updates this week, a few helpful moving tips I learned this time around and a few mistakes I’ll remember not to make next time :)
All of the boxes were first to go, then the big furniture was shrink wrapped/protected and moved, and we saved the small items for last: lamps, emptying out the fridge/freezer, etc.
I started unpacking the boxes in the new place while the movers continued to bring them in, and my mom coordinated things downstairs from the old place so it made for a really efficient system! My goal was to unpack first, organize and style later. This way, most of the boxes could be out of the apartment shortly after the move.
This might be my favorite Oh Joy! collection yet. I love the striped pitcher and mugs, but let’s be honest, I love it all. Great colors and graphic patterns on every element. Shop the full collection at Target.
PS- I’ll have a moving update on the blog tomorrow so stay tuned! In the meantime, happy shopping :)
No new posts until sometime next week- the last stages of packing and moving require a brief blog hiatus but I’ll be back very soon! Stay tuned to my instagram for updates and sneak peeks!
