I did not see my exact apartment until signing day and I was not pleased. Needless to say It was not love at first sight when I moved into my new apartment. My new place was not available until 3 weeks after I moved from my old home. What I thought would be a 3 week adventure turned into a nightmare and so I happily signed a 6 month lease and decided to make due with the new place. I will likely stay for about 18 months and making minor changes like apartment painting will back my stay enjoyable.
I decided that it would be fun to do a series of apartment friendly upgrades to make my place more like home. I’ve had tannish color walls for the last 13 years so this time I opted for white. The only problem is that the walls have a purple tint so for the first time ever, I am painting my home. I have a color scheme in mind but decided to get my feet wet by only doing my entry way for now.
I painted my entry way GOLD! Yes, Gold! This is Fools Gold by Glidden and it adds warmth and richens my living space. I just love the transformation.
I haven’t decided if I will pant the dining room or add wallpaper. I really want to do wall paper. I have also been thing of doing some fun things with fabric paneling. We shall see!
