Nesting as Procrastination

I will be done with the semester in less than two weeks (!!) and I have lots of work to do. I wish with all my might that I could tell you I’ve been working hard like the perfect student you all want me to be, but instead I have been sitting in bed dreaming about ways to  zhuzh up my room.  I have furniture– bed/desk/bookshelf/nightstand/lamps– so I’m not living in an empty room. When we moved in I intentionally kept my room pretty blah, but now we’ve lived here for four months and I have a sense of what the space feels like and how I want to use it. Here are my ideas- suggestions and recommendations welcome!

Bookshelf 

Mostly I just want a place to display the typewriter I got for Christmas last year, but my current bookshelf isn’t deep enough. Also, I don’t have all my books in NYC yet, so I don’t need a huge bookcase for my whole collection. I like the look of that blue dresser with the prints over it, so I thought I would recreate that with a bookshelf!

Miscellany

These are just various things I’ve seen around the internet that I’ve taken a liking to. My love affair with gold has surprised me this fall– it makes an appearance in almost everything I pin to my Apartment Inspiration board. My crafting supplies are about to outgrow their space in my desk drawers, so they’ve got to find a new home. That ikea bar cart is a perfect size for a little craft corner (although to be completely honest I’m running out of corners!).

Wardrobe

Currently, I have under-bed storage, and all my clothes that don’t go on hangers (pants, workout clothes, socks, underwear, etc.) are in one drawer and it’s driving me nuts. I saw this Pax Hack on Domino a few weeks ago and was smitten. I’d like to keep all my makeup/jewelry/clothes that don’t go on hangers in here so I can just close the doors and be done. And put stuff I don’t need every day in the drawer (cleaning/laundry supplies).

  1. Clapping for every choice you’ve made. Yup, I can see that you’ll need a much bigger craft storage solution. You know that the urge to create beauty (and general Fun Mayhem) just flows through your veins. Can’t wait to see how the nest progresses…..

    1. Thanks! I know, I could pretend I don’t have the creative urge but it would just lead to frustration and I’d wake up one day covered in paint and glitter and not know how it happened. At least now I know.
