We recently moved which means ONE thing my inner interior designer has awaken and is ready to be put to use (I took one interior design class in high school which I doubt qualifies me as an interior designer but for the sake of this post I’ll pretend I went to design school). The apartment we moved into has potential, as most things in life if you invest time or money or in our case both.
Our bathroom has a similar structure to the one in the picture but to make it look like this several things need to be done, 1) tiles needed to be painted white, currently they are an oatmeal color (yuck!) 2) the bathtub is getting some white epoxy so the tub can look brand new and we can get rid of some water stains 3) the walls are getting a coat or two of dark paint, we haven’t decided what color yet but we are thinking navy blue like the one in the picture or a dark bluish gray. I refuse to show you pictures of our current bathroom simply because its hideous but I’ll definitely do a before and after post once everything is done (this might be a while).
You might be wondering what on earth made us move into this place, for one the overall layout of the apartment is nice and the neighborhood is beautiful and parking is always readily available which if you live in the city you know this is GOLD! So aside from the horrendous bathroom, ugly kitchen tile and weird cabinets the apartment is not that bad. It just means we are going to have to set aside several weekends to make the place feel like home without breaking the piggy bank, after all we are only renting this place.
Wish us luck,
