We’ve Moved! Fourth Floor Walk Up is now located in Brooklyn!

CREATE, SPACESLauren Caron5 Comments

We moved into our new apartment, and it's beautiful!  Check out the before pictures!  Sorry for the poor quality iPhone photos I took them really quickly before the movers started dropping the boxes in.

I'm really very excited to get started and hurricane Irene has allowed for me to do that.  Today alone I've painted 1.5 walls including the molding, unpacked the bedroom, my whole closet, the kitchen and my entry way.

I've created a detailed To-Do List that I'm breaking down room by room.  This is what I have so far and I'm sure I'll be adding a lot more.
