It’s that moment when the storm has calmed. The movers have left, your furniture has been arranged, and you look around your new place….and see emptiness. Absolute emptiness. Because while your stuff seemed to overflow at the apartment you shared with your college roommate, you now notice how sparse your new place looks. Oy vey.
Don’t worry – I’ve been there, too. When I bought my home, all I brought over from my previous apartment was my mismatched bedroom furniture, and I went into a tizzy trying to figure out how I was going to furnish everything and not completely deplete my bank account. (I mean, let’s be honest, my down payment had already done a pretty good job of that.)
But then I realized that Rome wasn’t built in a day, and my home wouldn’t be, either. If I wanted the feel I was going for (within the budget I had set), I knew it was going to take some time to pull it all together. And that’s when I got creative.
