The Mittman-Lara household “Project Decorate!” is finally under way. We have very slowly started decorating the apartment and buying new pieces here and there to finally make our apartment look like a home. As much as I have a penchant for decor, for some reason we just never get around to decorating any of our apartment (we’ve moved every year for the last 3 years). So that’s 3 different apartments we technically never decorated. I am determined to create a home for us where we’re living now.

Our bedroom makeover takes first priority and we’ll then finish the living room and finally our bathroom. It’s a small apartment, so that’s essentially it. We just purchased this bed recently and I am head(board) over heels for it! See what I did there?

We also have nightstands that were a DIY project gone wrong that I’ve neglected to fix – talk about a bad staining job. It’s really bad. So it essentially needs to be stripped and re-stained. I keep putting it off for obvious reasons.

The next big piece of furniture next on our list is a dresser! We’ve been using Steven’s old dresser from his parent’s house and we’ve both grown tired of it. We’ve been eyeing this gorgeous dresser, but was elated to find this almost identical version for a much, much better price.

And can we talk about how insanely adorable and awesome this print is? I’ve searched high and low for the perfect print to go above our bed and hadn’t had any luck. That is until I found this and immediately knew it was the one. I wanted something that represented us, since after all the bedroom is our sanctuary, but didn’t want anything too trendy. So this print was perfect.

You’ll be seeing many more home decor snapshots to come as we continue to decorate. I’ll be featuring a post with the final outcome as we finish each room as well. So stay tuned!

  • Gonna miss this place - our favorite morning routine 💔 It’s amazing how you can spend your entire time living somewhere wanting to be somewhere else, until your wish is finally granted and then you realize how much you really loved where you’ve been all along. .
Thank you to everyone who has treated us like family from the beginning. Y’all (yeah, I finally said it 😂) have quite literally opened up your hearts, homes and families to us and made us feel so welcome. Texas was far too kind to us and we will miss this place tremendously and everyone who made our experience unforgettable. ♥️
