New Apartment!!

I've been moved into my new apartment for about a week now!
I don't want to share the before pictures just yet because I don't have the afters and they'll sit here for weeks looking ugly....

I will share the outside and one little project that I am currently obsessed with.

 Our apartment building!!

I made a new little fixture for our hall light :)

It's an umbrella I've had for years.   My mom bought it on clearance from the garden section of Kroger because she knew I'd just love it.  Well I have two of them and for about 10 years have not found a purpose for it and have just propped it against something.  
I got out the saw (in the AMAZING tool kit my inlaws gave my husband.... which I think we all know I will get way way more use out of than him) and chopped off the handle because it was too long and tied it to the existing light fixture.

I chose the hall light because
1. it was ugly
2. we won't use that light that often so just in case this is some sort of fire hazard the light won't be getting hot.

I can't wait to share more of our home with you!!! Thanks for sticking with me even though I am super unreliable in the blogging world :)

Heyyy girllll! Remember me?! :) I thought I'd check in on you and your adventures. Your apartment building is stunning!! And wow, I love what you did with the umbrella- I would never think to do that. You are so talented and unique as ever! xo

Love it! What a pretty, classy look. =)

That umbrella looks good but I think it blocks your light and darkens the hallway. Instead of covering it, why don’t you just buy a new light fixture? Anyway, congrats on your new apartment!
