in defense of bamagirl (or MET aka Martha's Evil Twin), she did do much of her decorating herself. or used things from last year, like her coverlet. yay for recycling.
the bed table was a yardsale find. the curtains were a purchase from tuesday morning.
the hutch over her desk is her roommate's over the bed shelving she had in her dorm last year. cut the sides off… and voila! a desk hutch! the christmas lights are from last year, too.
the canvases over her bed she painted herself.
acne medicine rendered her towels from last year unusable (grrrr.) so we decided white was probably best. she bought the trim for the towels and i sewed them for her and a friend monogrammed the bath towel. i sewed the flowers onto her shower curtain by hand while we drove from our home to alabama. a tedious dang job that i didn't finish. (empty spot in the center, plus she wants stems for the flowers). she painted the bathroom before we arrived and decided she does NOT want a career painting houses! what a pain!!
the kitchen is nicer than mine. seriously. i think my cooktop is better, but they have stunning cabinets with tons of room.
one nice thing about the apartment is their unit is on the end. so both the living room and bamagirl's rooms have double the windows. it's a cheery space. they're recycling curtains from bamagirl's dorm from last year. they match the throw pillows. the other blue ones were yardsale finds as were the decorations on all of the tables, including the lamps. just need a couple of lampshades for those.
tomorrow i'll give you a tour of the clubhouse. i hope one of the students has to move out and an apartment is available. the hubs and i have decided we'd love a 4 bedroom 4 bath home with all the amenities. i just don't want to have to do the school part. okay?
maybe the girls need a maid… i'm available. there's probably enough room in the pantry for me.
