throwing it back to winter (on this HOT day)! these pictures were taken back in march when I was house hunting!

mirror mirror on the wall.

the built in came with a mirror that just needed some elbow grease to clean it up. here is what it looked like before.

texture tuesday: the floor is lava.

the floor is not actually lava.. but it has needed a lot of love. in certain areas of the apartment there were layers of flooring (carpeting over tile over hardwood floor OR tile over tile over hard wood floor). the carpeting and tiles have all been removed and every inch of the floor was hand scrapped to remove the adhesive.
