A lil Kerosene, blow tourch..hmmm...No Problem! =)

I love that scene in the movie, "Beetlejuice" when Delia & Otho go through the Maitland's house and basically want to change everything.  I wonder what they would think of my lil home. =)

As I prepare for the next winter storm by stocking up on wine, chips & salsa I thought I would share with you guys some pics of what I've done so far with my new place & a draw-back. I received my refrigerator on Tuesday and was sooo excited for it. Everything was coming together but alas things weren't so perfect. I didn't take all the plastic off until I got home from work & I found that there was a HUGE DENT in the refrigerator door. I've calmed down from the insane anger rage state I was in, like seriously if I was in an anime cartoon my head would be huge & red & I'd have horns with lil puffs of smoke radiating from my head. Here's a pic of the big dent.

Thankfully however the replacement refrigerator is coming tomorrow. AND hopefully the snow won't be too bad to delay it. =)

I did manage to get a desk, my bed, & a couch set up so here are some pics for the time being. =)
Yeahh somehow my color scheme became red. I like it tho! =)
Thrifted Bench
The desk I bought from Ikea. It's a table but it only cost me $19! The chair is Ikea too.
This condo has been a lil overwhelming at times but I asked my mom to help me & cj so it should continue to come together nicely! =)

It all looks so cute! I just cleaned my apartment and it makes me feel so much better about everything. Hehe

I'd be livid about the fridge too. And red isn't that bad of a color, you were able to pull it off! :)

Heather Pranitis said...

I like your use of color. Bummer about the fridge. Don't worry it will come together. And mom's are great at helping. :)

Is it starting to feel like home? My favorite part of moving is nesting and setting everything up how you want it. You're doing a great job!

I love the red! Red (and varying shades of it) are the theme in my house too.

Ally said...

I love it! That couch and desk are especially awesome. You're such a sophisticated snowed-in person. I like cookies, bologna and chips when I'm snowed in - ha ha!

Any time you can get away with referencing Beetlejuice, it's a win. Also, I love the progress you've made so far in making your place look very homey and comfortable and cute. :)
