Aw, it is sad to see this com so empty these days.

I've got a room to share, though! A little kitchen nook.

a little more butter lemon yellow irl than in this picture




I finally!! moved into a house here in Portland that I feel like is MINE to do with what I want. I've been subletting for two years since moving here :/ I still live with roomies, but we are all equal partners in this...but at the same time, they are not big nesters, so the decor is up to me.

Challenges:
1. I'm BROKE. A lot of things belong to roomies or things I've found in free boxes.
2. I don't have a lot of things....so i'm relying on what I've got.
3. Mish-mash. Finding ways to mix everyone's different things together in a pleasing way.

The paint was found in a free box! Yay! Free paint...and not a horrible color. It doesn't really match the wood paneling or the table, but I think somehow, it works?

The shelf is a bit weird looking with the huge dollar tree brackets in white and the weirdly cut freebox piece of wood, but I plan on putting a bunch of hooks on the underside and using it as pan storage, hopefully covering the weird brackets.

The unfortunate window ...dowel. Haha. Someday I'll buy a REAL rod, but today or anytime soon is not that day.

I think it looks pretty nice despite the fact that it is a mish-mash of make do and free items.

Thanks for looking!

I feel like everyone's just got their twitter and their facebook for immediate thought-posting and instant gratification, and LJ is more of a "slow form" life documenting platform that is kind of... "out of style" now. :\

LJ is for people who are sitting at their desk, typing on a computer. Who does that anymore? Twitter and Facebook are for mobile devices. Maybe that's where everyone's gone?
