Decorating the Apartment

Today, July 21st, it is exactly one month ‘til USC Move In Day, and I still can’t decide if I’m excited or dreading it.

While I’ll be heading back to campus starting August 13th (as if my drive to Venice wasn’t long enough to begin with) to work on the Daily Trojan O-Issue, I’ll still be living at home until the 21st, five days from when classes begin.

ThoughI have all my dorm stuff from last year, I’ll be living in Troy East apartments this coming year, so my roommate and I are frantically trying to figure out our kitchen/living room supplies. I thought having a “furnished” space would mean pretty much no work, but there’s still so many pots and pans and nonsense to worry about.

Considering this is what I have to work with, decorating the apartment is going to be an uphill battle.

While due to my budget I’ll be getting most everything at Target, I’ve been spending the last few weeks scouring the Internet (Pinterest is my new best frined) for cool ways to spruce up dorm furniture. My friend and I even hit up a few antique shops, though in the end almost everything was a little out of our price range. While I doubt any decorating I do will make the apartment a work of art, I’ve come across some cool DIYs that I’m planning to attempt.
