What have I been doing?

Well, the better question would be "what should have I been doing?" I have a big paper due tomorrow and I have not even started it! I am the procrastinator extraordinaire. So after sleeping in, watching Father of the Bride Part I, eating lunch, browsing the internet, and blogging, I will finally be able to start this thing [hopefully].

Today is the first day of March, which means that I will be graduating in 2 months and 8 days!! It is so hard to believe. I realized that my moving date is in 2 months and 9 days! I have absolutely no idea how I am going to be able to furnish an entire house. All I know is that I am taking my bed from home and my TV and that is about it!

Browsing the internet, I was searching for ideas on how to decorate and furnish your first place. I found a website that a lot of ideas including furniture made out of Fedex boxes. Apparently, Fedex sent their lawyers after the guy that created the original website so it is no longer available, but here are some of the pictures.

Okay, so I am a pretty creative person. Even though I would never make my furniture out of boxes, surely I can come up with something?! Over spring break, I am going to go to some estate sales and start harrassing my relatives to see what I can come up with. Even if the furniture needs to be refinished or upholstered, I am completely capable of doing that. I cannot wait to see how it turns out!

That's so cool. I've seen a few where they make couches out of pizza boxes. Oh, college life.

Check Goodwills and Salvation Army stores. I've found some great furniture there. It's really hit or miss, though.

It's fun decorating your first place. Enjoy it!

I agree with Katy with Goodwill, etc. It is hit or miss, but if you are willing to get crafty, you can turn some good solid pieces (that may have hideous beige paint on them) into lovely black dressers with new fun knobs! good luck!

I still have no idea where I will be come May but how fun to start thinking about a new place! My sister got a lot on ebay (if you don't want to pay shipping, search for local pick up listings)

That is some intense furniture building skill right there, wow! These were fun, thanks for sharing! Oh and I hope that paper got finished!
