My Recent Apartment Projects

My Recent Apartment Projects

So, after living in a college apartment for three years, our mantle began to become a storage area for random collectibles. I decided it was time to start a project to clean up the area and help pull together the entire living space. So, with recent trips to Michael's, lots of paint, and HGTV playing in the background, I began my battle...
THE LOVEBOAT PROJECT For all my college friends, we've assigned names to each apartment... and ours happened to be The LoveBoat, basically because we housed a few couples. And so started the project... photo 214 First, I found this near a dumpster and thought I found gold! Dragged it up my stairs, and let it sit outside while I made my plans. Then, started my painting... photo 228 photo 232 Then, added my "LOVEBOAT" train... photo 240 And some rope and clothespins at the bottom... photo 238 photo 248 Photos of all the people (and pets) who have been residents of The LoveBoat (there's one picture missing): photo 255 photo 256 And, the second story: photo 258 A closer look: photo 241 photo 244 And the final product: photo 249
SIDE PROJECT: CADC AGENDA BOARD So, this isn't really for the apartment in particular, but something crafty, nonetheless. I'm part of a hip hop team called CADC and I created an agenda board that we use at practices to determine what we're doing everyday. We usually use it for our hell weeks (when we practice everyday before big competitions) and post up countdowns or fliers or upcoming events. BEFORE: photo 281 photo 282 Brainstorming: photo 264 In the middle of the process: photo 288 And the final product! photo 294 photo 295 photo 298 I used a lot of paper, ribbon, and pieces of cork sticker to put this together. It took quite a bit of time to get it the way I wanted it, but I'm quite satisfied. The clothespins at the bottom are to hold fliers of upcoming events, photos, or our countdown before big competitons/performances and the right side is a whiteboard to write the agenda for the practices.
RANDOM THINGS OUR BATHROOM: What a difference a new shower curtain can make... photo 219 And, our new APARTMENT CALENDAR WHITEBOARD (clearboard?): photo 204 Super fun!
Oye, I've got more photos of my bedroom. But I'll save that for next time. What do you guys think? I'd like to hear your feedback. Thanks for looking! photo 185 x PEACE. \\//
