…discernible taste in home decor! OK I do but I cannot afford my taste.
As the days of my roommates departure get closer and closer my apartment is getting emptier and emptier. I thought my consolation of losing a great roommate would be getting to decorate and pick out furniture. The more I look at furniture the more frustrated I get! It’s not fun it’s stressful! It’s all really expensive and anything affordable looks cheap. I have tried consignment stores and they are almost as expensive as the new stuff and look used…like real used. I want to know what has or hasn’t been done on my couch is you get my drift?!
I did find one piece I LOVED! It was a want though not a need because it’s a headboard so it’s purely decorative. That means I can’t buy it. 😦 I found my couch. It is more then I wanted to spend but it’s the first quality looking piece, I like it, and it’s still in the range of affordable. So I will finance that and at least have a place to sit. My dad is giving me a TV for my birthday so he’s basically my hero. I need a TV stand but since I am not getting my TV till my birthday I have some time on that one.
I went looking for a mirror and other wall decor and it’s all so pricey! There are so many other things I need to buy that it just isn’t practical. BUT how does a home feel like a home with blank, sad walls?
So basically I am totally lost with interior design on my budget. It might just take time and finding the right deals? I am remaining optimistic! I will find the right pieces.
