Year One: Entryway

If you might remember from last year, I chronicled all of the updates in my old studio apartment after a year of living there. I can’t believe that it’s already been just a few weeks shy of one year in my (new) studio apartment, but it’s always fun to look back and see how it’s progressed and changed! I’ll be doing year one updates the rest of this week and most of next week, so stay tuned for a new area of the apartment each day. Starting off in the entryway!

I almost forgot how many changes I made to this little spot before looking back at old photos. This is just a few days after I moved in: 2014-08-22 14.57.32-1Then I added the lovely gold triangle wall decals, art and over the door storage:2014-09-01 17.57.24 Then I used the Ikea Raskog cart for a temporary entry table/mail/storage drop. 2014-10-12 18.22.32I later updated the little cart with a few DIYs and decorative touches:

2015-02-10 17.14.51I found this amazing vintage table that fit perfectly:2015-01-20 15.41.04And painted it black and added a couple more vintage accessories and decor:2015-02-28 17.56.17And here’s the final product after one year! I love walking into this space every day, greeted by the decals, art, accessories and most importantly, that gorgeous little table. _BEtoTKnvL7f5d4i1jLiLnf51C4ThsohhUVntmGzA1U3khMY9yhbEd3yF-yGKj7HUfif29vwI2rWbepK28-XR8bEuX-8FG7pmFvgGkSdfGuJ7CoDpa77kOLKtdqviV3WMc0VWcWulm1wGfwy_NKhH67qUw8GS4IWXbpbA4Fyn6-MDXlIZoEYMlgWqCe-fRS8NKzv6IKfqLRLJ9jvAnOz8RERShm1s3vs___ow1o0hT68TRoS9E3qS0z-RfoUx4HsjwZmQO-z5ASsCS1SbCoOVX77EEmYj5EMLJp5ynrQdJBYo
