Sometimes I feel like the kiss of death for me is a specific deadline.

The bathroom is still the only finished room in the apartment, despite my promises. And, technically, it’s not even done because we’re going to change the shower head and hang a caddy thing on the wall. But it’s definitely the closest.

On the bright side, we emptied and disposed of about twenty boxes this weekend, so I’m trying not to feel like too much of a failure.

Side note: If you ever have a bunch of packing boxes to get rid of and just don’t have the heart to simply throw then away, put up a free Craigslist ad for them. I’ve done this twice and always had a taker in about 20 minutes. And it has nothing to do with being good at Craigslist.

Speaking of Craigslist, I finally managed to score a cedar chest to use as a coffee table!

(Ignore the other details of this horrendous “before” photo…we’re a work in progress…all in the name of authenticity, right?)

Anyway, I love it and it was super cheap because technically it needs a little restoring, but I kind of like its character. The best part is that it provides tons of storage, so we’ll be using it as a coffee table and to hold blankets and the various misc things in our apartment I haven’t been able to convince the hubs to throw away.

I’m afraid that’s the only photo I have to show you for now. Better luck next week?
