Apartment Tour | Decorating on a Budget, DIY Furniture



hi guys how's it goin haven't vlogged in a few days because my mom is here and I just felt like hanging out with her in spending time I've also not been doing anything super duper interesting I guess but we're heading out right now should you go on some errands go to Walmart go to Home Depot we had to return some stuff I've been doing so many DIY projects and I have so many products that are like I need a return or exchange or whatever you know it's trial and error when you're DIY so I cleaned up the house a little bit it's looking kind of good so I thought I'd give you guys like a tour of the apartment hum some stuff up on the walls me and Martin did that a few days ago so I feel like it's looking pretty good and I can kind of give you like an overview or like a tour of the apartment so we're going to do that right now before we go just so we can use for like what a month mm-hmm so right when you come in first thing you see is the kitchen this is how I fell in love with this apartment just because this kitchen is like dream which is beautiful so right as you come in there's like a coat closet in here Mar just keeps like all his junk in here and then we have like sweaters and jackets hanging Santa houses Venezuela thing hanging right here for our keys and then I made this kind of picture wall plan I'm going to keep adding – I do have some picture frames that I got from the dollar store that I still need to print pictures out on and kind of hang around this and I bought more stickers – these stickers are from the dollar store as well as you're wondering this one was like my favorite one so hung this up here I still need to put the pictures and I took out like a little inertia so I knew what sizes I needed so then right as you come in first thing is the dining room it's a good size that's what I liked about this apartment as well it's just pretty spacious that's buddy on the right we just have clock these lanterns are from Ikea these mirrors are from Martin's friend that were left over at Martins old apartment that clock has daddy gave us this dining room table is actually from Ikea it comes in a pine like raw unfinished wood and then you can kind of paint it stain it to whatever you want to it so I stained it with by the wood aging accelerant or whatever it's a specific product that just makes it look like really really old wood and I loved how it turned out it took 100 coats of it and it was a lot of work but I loved it so that's the dining room table the chairs are from Ikea and I got those in the edges section as well kind of want to get like a little rug for around the table but we'll see I'm not a fan of this carpet color by the way I kind of hate it but we'll live with it Martin built this bench this is the one that you guys have seen us we finally finished the stuff it kind of goes with the gray I didn't want everything to be the same color I wanted everything to kind of look similar kind of like the kitchen like a similar color pattern without it being like exactly the same so then this bench that my mom is sitting on Martin also built and we just stained it mmm thank you we also painted at the same color as the other bench and index just like a shoe bench is where you know you sit and put your shoes on stuff like that I talked about that in the other vlog has interested struggle us to like especially when you have carpet you kind of don't want to you know track all the dirt around the house so I just thought that was a great idea and yeah I might put like some shelving or something here it will see I still you know stopped finished so this is our s wall and I love or s wall I just keep buying them any time I find them I just think it's a really cool concept so I don't remember if I saw this idea on Pinterest or where I saw it but my mom and I were at Marshall's one day and we saw these two and we just picked them up and then just kind of went from there this was like a medal that I got a Marshalls and I really liked it and then we have another one over there that we have to stain and kind of decorate so this is the kitchen I was supposed to not get a stainless steel fridge or dishwasher but it kind of worked out that I did so that was pretty cool and I just love the kitchen it's one of my favorite rooms in the house I'm still not done like decorating it or whatever but I kind of wanted to keep it simple because you know I just don't like a lot of stuff on the countertops so it's awesome that so much storage worth – I really don't need to have a cluttered kitchen so and my favorite part is the sink I love this thing so over here which is like an open floor plan obviously and here's the living room I just went with the same color palette you know kind of grayish throughout in beige these barstools are also from Ikea they're the same as the dining room table and then our couch and our recliner are from rooms to go and then this is our table that we did ourselves and I freaking love how it turned out I think we did a pretty good job whipped up so and I'm thinking of painting that mirror silver instead of gold I'm not sure how I like that right now so we'll see and then this Ottoman used to live at the end of the couch but I just scooch it over here and I still need to do like a centerpiece for here and also for the dining room table I did buy these flowers with a dollar store to make them I just have to find like little you know containers or things to put them in so that I can actually you know make my own because I like doing that and you know just start TV on this side you have our Roomba and our sound system and then you know motivational things on the wall I think I got these at a garage sale so I don't know if you found a pattern or a theme here but everything is kind of reused repurposed or we got it from somebody and then our furniture you know lots of the things our DIY is just because I feel like that's cheaper and I can get the look that I want for less so right here is the den and this is what made me want to get this apartment because we needed extra space for like an office and like my vanity area so this was perfect because still connected but it's just kind of like a separate room back there they also have an option to have this as a patio but I honestly never go outside so this was set for us we just wanted you know again so alright here is my vanity area so I have this bookshelf this we bought on Craigslist and it was originally like a birch color but Martin painted it white for me and I used to have like all of my splashes and lotions and stuff on here but it kind of doesn't really look good out here in the living room so this is what I have so far but I kind of have to repurpose it I guess in all these books you know I have my books at the bottom there but that's what it looks like for now if you're wondering that is an oil diffuser I know it looks kind of weird so here's my vanity area I used to have a whole room for it but now I just you know I just kind of have a little area for it which is totally fine so I kind of use this to edit on be on my computer and then also you know my makeup and stuff but I haven't been doing my makeup that much so kind of been like my desk office area if you will these are the things for the pictures I need to figure out what I'm going to print within my planner it does have 2017 NHS's 2018 and then my jacket we have a morphe palette that i've yet to use because i don't do my makeup anymore i must wash so this side is like the ebay amazon resale side of the den so it's kind of cluttered it doesn't really have any sort of you know cuteness organization to it but I have some pictures up here on the wall and then this is where Martin sits and studies he's taking organic chemistry right now so this is where he sits and does that we have a dead orchid that needs to bloom again printer Oh down there and this is just like all resale packaging supplies shipping and selling area you know all right here just kind of random electronics those two boxes are actually memory boxes that Martin's mom kept for him so there are things from when he was in pre-k when he was a baby all that stuff so I'm actually using reusing a lot of that stuff to put into the baby's room just because it's really cute and I thought it was awesome just to kind of keep it you know vintage and reuse family stuff so so these are actually pretty cool one of them is from Costa Rica I don't know where one is from but I just kind of hung them up there in like his little corner because I thought they were really cute they didn't really go with anything else I just kind of put them in here and then I like that from this angle you just kind of see the whole apartment then right here is going to be the baby's room now this is by no means finished I still need to hang like everything on the wall but I thought it'd be cool to do like a before and after it's completely finished so we painted the walls gray and blue obviously they were originally like this like creamy yellowish kind of tinted color but I wanted this color scheme for his room my bassinet my friend Monica gave to me thanks Monica and then this is our daybed this is also a Craigslist deal this bed is originally $300 from Ikea and I got it for only $100 which was an amazing deal bed is just super super useful for you it can be obviously a bed it can be like a couch and it pulls out into a king-sized mattress so you can kind of put two foam mattresses together and make a king bed I just have a single mattress as a twin mattress on it right now and then I would like blue for the color so that it just goes all together but it also has three drawers for storage at the bottom which i think is pretty cool and I don't know about those curtains yet I still have to figure out whether I love them or not I have my glider right here in the corner Martin got me that for Mother's Day because he's amazing and then this stuffed animal actually belonged to one of my nephew's and then we're just kind of reusing it for cubby which i think is awesome I did like you know keeping things and family I just love that and save you money and it's cute you know you're like oh it's like an heirloom like something that you're passing down so I think is pretty cute and then in this corner I keep my birthing ball Pilates ball whatever I bounce on that and then there's an air purifier in the corner so like I said this room is not done like I said to rearrange the furniture the daybed is going to go against that window and the crib is going to go right here and then I'm making a sign with is Amanda it's going to go right on the wall right there and I'll show you that sign in a little bit it's almost done his dresser this is for my Kia as well I got it at a sale $50 off are you guys seeing a theme here your girl likes sales and cheap and I'm going to get like a changing pad and just put top and repurpose this as a changing table just because there's no need to you know use of space with a changing table where you can just reuse a dresser so this TV is going to be mounted on the wall and then I'm going to put like you know art and stuff all over the walls so this I got Michaels for $7.99 and I think it's going to look beautiful on the wall we can hang like his ultrasounds and stuff from us this was actually Martin's grandpa's so he got this just to honor him for serving he got this right before he passed and his grandma gave it to us so it's super special and I love it it's super cute I should put it right here so that's going to live in here this is a little nightlight thing from Ikea that's also gonna hang on the wall and then here some decorations that I thought that I haven't hung up yet just because I still don't know how I'm going to lay it the room out so there's some books and stuff down there so this is a bunch of clothes Oh Monica also gave me a girl I see need to sort through these organize the doors I'm kind of waiting a little bit longer to do that but I might start doing that in like the next week or so he has his own bathroom which you know honestly he doesn't he doesn't need my mom is using this obviously right now just because she's staying here that's kind of why I wanted the daybed if people are visiting they can sleep on the daybed and it's just very cute in a nice way of having like more sitting room in the second bedroom and also we all play for somebody to sleep so it's nice to have this guest bath bathroom in here and this one has a shower and there's a linen closet right back here I love this floor we live on the second floor and we lived on the first floor we would have this floor throughout the house and I'm kind of upset that we don't live on first floor whatever it's a very spacious bathroom for a second bedroom this is the closet in his room which is huge it's a little bit of a mess I have like that's his mama room that I have rocking place that's his car seat and his strollers back there and they're like my mom's suitcase like there's just so much stuff in here and all that back there is eBay merchandise that you just keep here I mean he's not really going to need this closet so he has like all his drawers and stuff so I do plan to use like some of this closet space for him but the rest is probably going to be like storage and like I said II based up and then these are my dresses that really sit in our closet but this closet is a little bit of a mess and those two bags are his clothes that I need to wash and put away and those I got from Amy Amy is my sister-in-law and she's amazing then moving right across the apartment we have this cadet cos map that Martin bought and XE we bought the frame at IKEA I just hung it up and I thought that was super cute he got me that as a housewarming gift when we first moved in together and then this is our bedroom this room is pretty spacious it has a king-size bed in it and I still have all this space right here so the bassinet that's in his room right now the baby's room is probably going to live right here when he's born just because I know that I'm not going to be walking across the apartment for you know the first few weeks or months or whatever so we just have our TV on one side that's the same dresser that we have in the baby's room is just you know a black brown my mom got me these CNM letters at Marshalls and I love them and then here is just pictures of me and Martin and I plan on getting pictures of me on this side and putting pictures of him on this side and then just having it be like see you know and in the middle I think that's going to be really cute so I just have a random chair in the corner this one needs to be the one to live in my vanity but I got that cushy one for more Martin's friends so this one lives here now because it's too hard for me that's my pregnancy pillow but you know it lives over there in the corner because you know when I make the bed it doesn't go on here and then Martin sound machine and that's what it looks like I kind of want to hang up a painting for above the bed but I've yet to find something that I love so that's that walls empty for now is where all my toiletries sir my you know girly feminine things live I don't think this is going to be like the layout of the dresser but it just kind of goes like this for now and this my grandma made she passed away in October I have a lot of these that she made for me she even handmade them so this one looks right here because when I look at it I think of her Martin kind of doesn't like it because it doesn't really go with the theme of our house I guess but my grandma made it so I love it we found our Apple TV speakers TV Bluetooth speakers we have a lot of speakers is where I keep my jewelry I love it it just goes with our bed I found this at Marshall and then over here we have our closet not really that messy it's okay mm-hm and I kind of took up most of the space in there to be honest with you then in here is our bathroom we have our linen closet and then this is our bathroom and I seriously think that our bathroom is smaller than the baby but it's okay we do have double sinks which I love we have lots of storage down here and then we also have two new a medicine cabinet right here our other apartment didn't have it it was like such a hassle of not having one I love all the fixtures in here the what the light fixture the sink fixture like all these little details I just thought everything in here was super cute and modern looking and it was totally my style I just have an orchid that lives in the corner that one is from Marshalls as well and then all of our like little bathroom stuff I got from Target everything is a little mismatched in here but that's okay I can live with that I kind of want a rug that goes here I haven't found one that I love so I haven't bought that just over here is the shower we do have a tub and this was huge I am in love with it I take lots of baths because pregnant lady needs her mass and I love the rain showerhead it's so amazing feel like you're taking a bath in a spa like it's truly truly amazing so that's pretty much it that's the apartment I kind of wanted to give you guys like a little layout of it because I've been working kind of hard at decorating it and getting it ready so by the time the baby comes the house is kind of you know all set up and you know we can live in a nice place and then this is nothing special it's just our laundry room I kind of want to organize it in a different way but it's just kind of what it looks like right now like I said we were doing lots of DIY so there's a lot of stuff just laying around this doesn't come with the apartment I had this in our other bathroom but I just kind of put it in here put all our cleaning supplies so I just kind of hung up our ironing board and then our iron those up there in our you know Swiffer and all that stuff in our vacuum and then here is the air conditioning unit when I keep some stuff in there but I'm just super excited to have a full size washer and dryer because our old apartment we had stackables and they suck they're awful so and then I also have this floor in here which I wish I have throughout the house but no dice so and it's pretty spacious and I love it because it's just so much more comfortable doing laundry now I'll do another video when the baby's room is done just to show you guys kind of how I decorated and how I organized everything I always like watching those videos so I think it'd be cool to someone right now we're going to head out and do her errands my mom is probably annoyed of sitting over there waiting for me so this is the sign that we made for the baby's room me and my mom are working on this so I painted this color and it turned out amazing clothes but it's like smells so strong sustained and all the other things abuse is not so bad but this one sticks way to go and so just because it's bad for you when you're pregnant and stuff I just left it up here and hopefully no one messes with it while we're gone so we're getting ready to have dinner I made stuffed shell my mom made salad and then I also made Platini and yep we're getting ready to chow down you ready bud yep turn off the camera so I can eat [Laughter]

    Your apartment is nice, but it already has too much going on. You do not need to put too much on the walls, it will make your apartment look small and more cluttered. Just a suggestion!
