Now I want a new bed

Setting up my new apartment is slow going. Part of that is because I am, by nature, LAZY (remember the mirrors issue?). But part of it is that as soon as I tackle one project, I find another.

For example, I sold one of two nightstands only to realize “Oh, hey! A new headboard would really help my bedroom look great.”

I’m not completely in the clear, but I have found a new place to live. Obviously I’m not going to post a link to the apartment description and announce to the world where I live. But I will say that I’m staying in Williamsburg – yay!

Weird fact: I ultimately chose between two finalists upon deciding I couldn’t live with this oddly broken-up closet.

In case you’re curious, here are a few places I considered during the hunt.

Where are they now – real estate edition

Remember my apartment search when I was moving back to NYC from DC? I can’t forget. I might be scarred for life.

Something made me look back at the apartments I considered to see what rents look like now.

Why can’t this weekend last longer?

After a week of miserable rain and humidity, Saturday dawned perfectly pleasant: sunny and dry.

But it wasn’t the prospect of a good hair day that had me smiling. Instead, it was the fact that the future owner of an unwanted – and very, very large – piece of furniture would soon be removed from my bedroom in the new apartment. Continue reading
