touring the apartment (office and bathroom edition)

If you've been reading closely, you may have noticed I made mention of the fact we are in the process of buying a house... consequently, all we are waiting for now is the lawyer stuff and we should be closing in a few weeks! And so I realize I need to get my booty in gear and finish posting pictures of this apartment before we move!

Yesterday I did something I've been dreaming of doing for literally years. I got to pick out paint. And noone else's opinion mattered. I don't have to worry about painting back over it when I move along, I don't need approval from my mom, I am free! No more mish mash paint, muddy blues and greens... ugh. So done!

Such a great feeling. Seriously. But you probably know that ;)

At any rate, you might think I hate my apartment after that little rant, but it's simply not true. Yes, we don't have to decorate for Halloween because the outside of the house already fits the description... but this little apartment has a lot of good memories.

So here are the final 2 rooms.

This is the office/2nd bedroom. It was a disaster for most of the year, but a few weeks ago we really cleaned it up. There were boxes and boxes of stuff that had never been unpacked... which had more to do with the fact that we just didn't know where to put it once it was unpacked and less to do with wanting to unpack it. Well now that it's all unpacked I can pack it up once again... but there's a lot less. That's one of the things I like about moving and organizing... it gives me the best excuse to purge and get rid of old things I just don't need.

This is the view from the doorway above, then the picture below is the other side of the room to the right.

When Steve first moved in last winter the tool chest there was his night stand...

Then there is our guest bed to the right in this picture, but it's a twin. When we move, we'll have our double bed in the guest room, but that's in storage at a friend's house right now since we don't have room for it!

So that's that... now on to the bathroom.

It's super tiny, but you know what? I absolutely love it. I especially love being able to wash my hands while still sitting on the toilet... :P But seriously, the light is really awesome in there and it's cute and cozy :)

I absolutely love this shower curtain! Pretty much everything about it. Needless to say, the bathroom in the new house will be decorated very similarly... I'm still trying to decide what to do as for paint in there though... I'm almost leaning towards just white. I'm afraid it's possible I could overdo it with the teal. If you have an opinion feel free to tell me!

What kind of markers did you use to write on the mirror? What a great idea!

@anonymous: I just bought a multi pack of dry erase markers, they work great!

Oh my goodness the dry erase markers are genius!

We had a similar second bedroom in our apartment in NY now we're living out of boxes because we know this is temporary.

I'm totally stealing your tour theme posts when we get our own place again!

First, I'm so going out to buy dry erase markers for our mirrors. It's going to ROCK my daughter's world!

Second, I love that shower curtain, too! I have one that's the same colors. My walls are tan, but I've always wanted to do teal tiles on the walls, or a light brown paint. I'm afraid that it could quickly go downhill with either of those options and am holding out in the hopes that I win some sort of HGTV makeover, lol.

I really can't believe what you have done with the place, everything Looks great.
I can't wait to see what you do with your new home. It's going to be fun. I hope I can help ;)
