Extreme Home Makeover

What better way to introduce myself to you than to show you my new home? I recently became Miss Fix-it when I decided to rent an apartment built in the 1940’s. It was outdated to say the least: The “80’s threw up on my staircase” sponge painted spiral staircase! The bright yellow, lime green and magenta walls! The crusty peeling wallpaper! The competing patterns and color schemes screaming at eachother in a 500-square-foot space!...

Even so, I have a thing for artistic/design challenges and I saw the potential to make it my own, so I went for it (with A LOT of help from some good friends)...

Two months later, a few hundred bucks poorer and 5 tubes of caulk dispensed of, this apartment is my jam and maybe my best art project yet.
