I recently moved to Arizona from overseas so all I had was a suitcase of clothes. Had to start from scratch to make an apartment my home. For me shopping is always fun but wasn’t so much in peak summer arizona heat but still managed to bring things together.
In the picture below an inverted vase bought on clearance acts as a table for my coffee mug or a small vase.
The above picture shows a 6$ frame and a free crumpled wrapping paper from Ikea working as a mat for my photo print to convert the whole piece into an art work.
Craigslist has been my best friend so far. With some some luck and patience I managed to get most of the things in my budget. Will show the bedrooms soon.
