first time renter questions and photos of my bedroom.

Hello there. I just stumbled across this community. I've been scrolling through pages and pages of gorgeous apartments. I am jealous. Currently i'm restricted to one bedroom and living with my Aunt. However, in a few months (after my tax return to be exact) my boyfriend and I are going to look for a one bedroom apartment. My question to you is, how focused on credit have you found landlords to be? A few years ago I was making amazing money and then with the decline of the economy there went my job. My credit took a dive. My vehicle got repossessed. Basically, my credit isn't going to make me look very responsible. I've got no rental history and my background is entirely clean. By the time I move i'll have been at my job and residence for over a year. My boyfriend and I's income (he has no credit, by the way) will be more than enough to cover rent for a one bedroom. I could get letters from employers that speak to my character. Do you think my terrible credit is going to stop me from getting a place though? I'm new to apartment finding. So thank you for any knowledge you can throw my way. And pictures of my bedroom... Those were from when I first set it up. These few are a bit more recent. Minor changes. The shot with the bed in it didn't come out good but it does show my new blanket. Don't mind the insane amount of stickers on the door. This was my little cousin's room before I arrived. Obama also got relocated due to another Kurt Halsey print taking his space. I don't have a picture of it handy though.
Finally!

Finally!
