The above image is my ideal unit based on realistic parts from one of my favorite places for mass produced slightly over priced goods....Target. Target doesn't sell a unit that actually looks like this but they do sell some cube storage that comes close and can be combined for my desired look. (See below) The eight cube unit will be turned so that is is 2x4 and one will be placed on each side of the 3x3 unit (I already have one in my dorm room). Of course this only happens after the pieces have been painted black (I'm thinking of going for the lacquered look). I'm just totally in love with the idea and already have plans for what will go on my soon to be new shelving. I'm considering making my bedroom a TV free zone so that would leave space on top of the 3x3 section for an awesome candle-scape and some nicely "potted" lucky bamboo plants.
- The actual cubes (~1x1) will house my books, some objects DE Arte, and maybe a few fabric drawers/baskets for storage (in the cubes without backs).
- On top of the ~4ft shelves a nice vase and a potted vine (matching).
- To each side of the 2x4 units, I would like to do some sort of sconce (wall mounted or hanging from the ceiling), and over the 3x3 maybe a nice original painting or a rasterbation of some sort.
This is just my thought for my "focus" wall and should set me back maybe $150, I'm so hoping I can do it for less. If we get the apartment we're LOVING right now all of the storage will be in closet so the room doesn't have to be anything but comfortable. Next post (give me a day or two tops) I'll be discussing my plans for bedding and lounging. Can we say Ms. Ma'at is totally excited about this whole thing.

I came home for the weekend, you know to visit the folks and what not. My mother and I were sitting in the computer room when she looks at me and goes, "hey, can I sell your sewing machine?" I asked her if she'd gone nuts, and her reply was no but you don't use it. Umm hello, I'm in Nashville and the sewing machine is here of course I don't use it. There's no room for it in my dorm cubby (my room, I'll post the picture of the crochet corner and you'll understand). I told her NO you may not sell it, I'm going to come get it when I get my apartment we're talking end of April here guys. I just get the feeling that woman is trying to be rid of me lol.
On threadier topics, the sewing machine is going to be a vital part of the moving as I have sincere intentions of being sister sews it lol. I plan on doing my own throw pillows and possibly a duvet cover of sorts, heck I might even get bold and try my hand at some curtains... or not. The thing is I'm really a huge fan of DIY so the idea of making stuff gets my heart racing. I'm thinking platform bed with hidden storage (hello somebody lol). There was a sister on NP a while back who built her own bed and dresser and I was totally feeling it, so I'm thinking something like that... Only time will tell.
