We moved into our new apartment four months ago, and it’s been quite busy over here with unpacking, settling in, decorating, and a bunch of other boring house stuff. This is the first time we ever bought a property, so it’s been a lot of surprises, breakdowns, and frustration (and of course, good things as well).
One of the weird/wonderful thing about living in your own place is having free reign to do whatever we want. Using nails to hang artwork? No problem. Want to drill a bazillion holes? Go ahead. It was a bit disconcerting at first, having this much freedom after years of renting. But after a few months, I’ve learned not to flinch when drilling or hammering nails in.
As I mentioned above, there’s been a lot of surprises along the way, and so many lessons learned (at least for me. I don’t know, maybe most of you have known these things already). Anyway, I thought I’d list down some of the big things I’ve learned about decorating and filling in your place after you’ve moved in.
