Kidding, though admittedly the 'big reveal' suffers from lack of impact when it's all in one room. I try to make up for it by the sheer volume of items I have managed to stuff in there.
Oh, the bar cart helped with that homey feeling too. Because it's not really your place until you pop a bottle of champagne in it! I'm absolutely in love with my Ikea Raskog kitchen cart; while it may not be the vintage Lucite number I've always dreamed about, it is very space conscious, and that sort of thing wins my heart these days.
I'm still working on the space, mostly just decorative at this point. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on are the walls, which are currently blindingly white and horrifyingly blank. They have a ribbed drywall treatment, so I can't nail into them or even tape on them (there goes all those washi tape tutorials); any renters out there with clever ideas?
As you may have noticed, I have not included any shots of the bathroom, so let me describe it for you. Imagine that you stand a shoe box on end, and then lineup a tiny vanity, toilet, and shower across the back. Now, you have a pretty good idea of my situation. Ooh, also, the shower ceiling is at a bit of a slant because that's where the stairs for the upper apartment are. So basically I just pretend I'm Harry Potter, in the water closet under the stairs. But on the upside, it does have the one window in the whole place and it actually provides quite a bit of natural light. I'm brainstorming a bathroom beautification project, so when I get that done perhaps I'll try to take a few pictures (I might have to stand in the shower).
My favorite thing I've made for this space is the tassel garland to hang over my bed. I stayed up til 5 am Sunday crafting this with a couple of cocktails and binged on the entire last season of Burn Notice on Netflix (it was terrible but I couldn't stop), and I was quite happy with the outcome! I'm going to post a little DIY on Thursday on how I made these 15 inch bad boys.
Happy Tuesday! Cheers & many returns, Rachel
