As you saw on my social I moved this past weekend! It was way too hard to try and find a place in Houston while living in Nashville. So I lived with my parents for the past few months until I settled down and found somewhere I loved! Which is the cutest little 1 bedroom in a old-er “building” (its 8 units i don’t know what to call it) that was recently renovated! The posts around here have been beyond LAME because I cannot get off craigslist, facebook, RugsUSA, pinterest….but it is time to get off because the place is FINE for now and I need to CHILL the F out haha.
I did want to share a few things I found and share where i got them! Before I moved in I started looking for the two big pieces I needed: couch & kitchen table. For the table I wanted something wood and modern…my “interior designer” (my roommate in Nashville who I posted a lot about on instagram) directed me towards that to pair with my lucite chairs and hide rug! I found the table on craigslist for….$60!
Second was the couch…I had/have a super small budget so I was all over craiglist and facebook marketplace. Backup…did you know FB Marketplace was a thing? I had always heard of it / seen it on the app but never used it…until now! I like it because you can see the person selling and they are more eager to respond to a fb message than a email. I was looking for something neutral, wide, with a high back. Well those were all things i liked in couches but was really open to anything** I found this baby on facebook for a wopppping $120! She is in near perfect condition and is so comfortable. My parents actually were jealous and offered to buy it from me!
Tips: know what you are looking for in detail, search multiple names because everyone calls something different. IF you have time scroll through FB without any searches because you may call something X but someone may call it the opposite.
The cute bamboo table i got at a antique shop and just need a little marble or mirror slab for it!
