It’s been a few weeks, but I’ve finally been able to check out the apartment again… sans the grime. They picked up the previous tenant’s trash, polished the floors, patched up the tiles in the bathroom, and put in some new fixtures/appliances (refer to this post to catch up). I think that it looks pretty darn pretty. So I obnoxiously took pictures. Here are a few.
You clean up nice.
Is it clearly old? Yes. Does it look a little tattered? Yeah. Probably a little more so than these pictures depict. Is there anything wrong with that? Nah. I think that’s what makes it so interesting. It’s just what I need. Suffice it to say, I’m excited to get going on this move. Over the next few weeks I’ll be accumulating a bunch of stuff for it. Luckily I already have the BIG pieces that would eat up the majority of my budget (living room furniture, some bedroom stuff, etc). That, and I often frequent this awesome store called My Parent’s House, where I grab a bunch of random stuff that they don’t want.
The lease is signed and the ball is rolling. There are some logistical things that I have a few weeks to figure out… like how I’m going to get a bunch of huge rugs into my car because renting a truck to pick them up from the store would break my (small) budget for this whole thing? Bleh. Being cheap has it’s perks more often than not, but it’s annoying sometimes.
There’s a lot of space to work with in this place, which gives me a lot to do.
