Apartment Therapy

Here are my true, deep feelings about our apartment bedroom. I love it, but I hate it. I love it because it's our first room that we've lived in together, and that's just dandy. But I hate it because of, well, everything else.

Let me paint the scene for you. Walking in, our queen-sized bed immediately welcomes you to the left. The base is up against the door frame - so close that we weren't sure if the door would close at first. The left side of the bed is up against the wall, and the right is almost touching the window sill. Between the bed and the other wall, there's just enough space to walk. On the opposite end of the room there's a closet that's shaped like a "V", in which Doug's clothes hang, and he literally has body-dive himself in there to reach the clothes toward the end of the closet. {It makes a humorous morning, let me tell you.}

In it's entirety, our room is a Hobbit's dream. But, as it's harbored by two people above 2 feet tall, it's definitely not ideal. Which is why, after a year of closet dives & stubbing toes, we've made the decision that we're lofting our bed.

I know what you're thinking. "But that's what college freshmen do!" Yes. Indeed it is. Desperate times call for desperate measures, people, and we simply need more space. 

So, we're drawing up plans, exploring where to buy wood, and are going to do this thing. It'll be hysterical, perhaps a bit awkward, and most definitely something that a college student would approve of, but if we're lucky, it'll look like any of the pictures above.

Wish us luck upon our journey! I'll be sure to keep you updated. In the meantime, do you have any space-saving tips for apartments? Do tell!
