We've been dorm/apartment shopping.
#1 is living in an apartment this year when she goes back to school.
I am amazed at how fast the summer has gone by. It is that time again. Time to pack all of those plastic containers and cart them up the road to Chapel Hill. I have been busy trying to get things together for both of my college girls. It has been very time consuming (and expensive).
#1's apartment is going to be really cute. There will three other girls living with her. She will have her own bedroom and will share a bathroom with one other girl. The apartment is in an old converted warehouse and has high open ceilings with exposed beams and duct work. The floors are stained concrete and there are brick walls in all of the rooms. It is trendy. It is nothing like the places I lived in when I was in college.
We've found the some really neat things for her bedroom. We laid everything out in #3's bedroom so that we could see what it was going to look like. I love all of the colors. I think it is going to look great.
She is using a white quilt over her bed and is using the colorful one folded and at the foot. She is going to use a lot of pillows. The pink pillow and the larger green one is #3's so they will stay here, but the rest of them she will be using. We propped the picture up just to make sure it all goes together and it looks like it was made to go with the little white pillow in the front. We found everything at Crate and Barrel, HomeGoods and World Market.
#1 has a big job to do this weekend. She is going to be painting bedroom furniture and some tables for the living area. She is taking some older things that we have in the attic and painting them all black. (I knew we kept those things for a reason!)
I'll take pictures of #2's things next and get them on here. We have a little more shopping to do. Finding Twin XL egg plant colored sheets has proven to be a difficult job.
