Project Simplification - I can't believe I'm doing this

The first thing I thought this morning when I rolled out of bed was that I needed to take some pictures for this blog post....and that I'm crazy.

I'm definitely one of those people who are worried to death about what people think...so it will be a miracle when I am able to hit the "Publish" button on this post!

This is my first ever studio. In my first ever apartment! I managed to get married and move into said apartment at the beginning of the first semester I've ever been in college full time. Oh yeah, and I have 2 part time jobs plus my own photography business that I've been keeping up with. So, needless to say, I haven't found much time to unpack. Which is still inexcusable for the condition of these pictures I'm about to show you. Ready? I'm not sure I am...but here it goes!

Ugh...I did it!

This room is kind of small...big enough to hold all of the crap that my previous bedroom and walk in closet hosted though! And would you believe that this room has had some stuff taken out of it already? I've got all of my clothes sorted through (for the most part) and hung in my bedroom closet...so I'm pretty much down to knick knacks and yarn and sewing patterns and fabric...and boxes and more boxes! And 2 sad looking plastic shelving units.

Umm...yeah. I'll spare you the gory details of unit number 2. 

So, my new blog project for who knows how long is called Project Simplification. I dream of having a beautiful, approachable studio like this one.

Hubby and I have plans to go to Ikea this weekend (HURRAY!) to buy much needed bedroom furniture (confession: our mattress is still on the floor). I also have some plans to buy some things to make my studio a little bit happier place to habituate. I would like to install a curtain wire along the wall where that sad storage unit number 1 currently sits. I'm not sure what color I'm going to end up going with in the room (We can't paint), except that I will have some pretty egg shell blue accents.

I'm also keeping my eyes open for a dresser to purchase for super cheap either through craigslist or at goodwill. I have plans for it like this dresser

Isn't that an awesome way to be able to keep things at hand yet put away? And you can even paint it to be the exact color you want!

Alright, that's all for today folks. Next time I'll be back with some progress on decluttering (and unpacking boxes!)
