Back when I first moved to Korea, I posted pictures of my tiny little flat and swore that I was going to “Pinterest” the shit out of it. Unfortunately, Korea is seriously lacking fabric stores – or at least any fabrics that were made past the 80’s. And then I just got lazy.
I did manage to make my little apartment a bit cozier and homey and so in the interest of reminiscing and documenting history (I just moved out of this apartment 3 days ago), here are my before and after pics:
It’s kinda hard to tell, but I upgraded from a “super single” to a queen bed. Which also meant I was able to get rid of that HORRENDOUS bed frame on the left.
I also got rid of that janky clothes rack, thank GOD. I didn’t really have a choice since I came home from school one day and it had completely collapsed on one side because I had piled too many clothes on it. Whoops.
I decorated dorm-style, teacher-style (paper + a laminator a school), took off the mass amounts of hooks that were scattered across the walls that the former tenant substituted as a closet (who does that?), brought in some plants (succulents that I manage to kill and lovely flowers from the boyfriend) and yeah, I guess that’s about it. Regardless, it still made my tiny little apartment home and I was surprisingly sad to leave it.
I’m now in Busan – about an hour south of Ulsan right on the beach (okay, about a kilometer from the beach. But I can see it from my window). Currently living college-style (literally, living with 2 other girls in one room while Nate’s upstairs in a studio apartment with 3 other dudes) but will be moving into my new place this Saturday!
Anyway, this post has taken me far too long, mostly due to the soju and wine-intake, bonding-with-new-co-teachers-slash-[current]roommates-and-soon-to-be-neighbors, and Grandma’s-Boy-watching (such a classic). So bye.
