Apartment Renovating

Well, I'm starting to renovate the apartment and it's turning out amazing!I figure..if I can't have my 50's rancher just yet, I'm gonna do everything I can to make my apartment "me". Anyhow..I was fortunate enough to have our antique lady contact us about a mid century sofa about 3 weeks ago...she was at a church sale and thought of us, i asked if she was able to get pictures and when i opened my text messages i nearly freaked....it was perfect! the pictures werent that great but from what i saw i wanted it...mauve, typical 50's style and print and wide arms. score! BEST PART it was only $65 bucks!!!!!! We went to pick it up 3 days later and to my surprise I lifted up the cushions and IT'S A KROEHLER!!! A Kroehler Galaxy 4 piece sectional and it's in awesome condition! I couldnt be anymore lucky. So the only thing left to complete my livingroom is a vintage tv stand...OR if I'm lucky enough a vintage tv console cabinet and a few more accessories and I'm set. I need to pick up more paint before it's finished but I can show what's done as of now. I also redid my kitchen cabinets/dining section and started laying checkered tiles. Next up is finishing the bedroom, all that needs done is painting and curtains hung. I put my large 50's square armchair in the bedroom since it didn't fit in the livingroom with the new sectional and it looks great with my 50's bedset. Can't wait to get 100% complete...then I'll make a HUGE post...but for now, here's what I did today...
I'm in love! LOL Oh...and how about a new photo of me...
