New Apartment

I got into the new apartment about a week late due to the previous tenant's move and cleaning, etc.  It took me about two weeks to unpack... personal record!  This is the first time in 5 years that I've been completely unpacked in my own place.

I haven't put up any artwork or pictures yet.  Also, I need to go through and organize everything and probably rearrange some of the furniture, but I wanted to post some pictures so you can at least get the general idea of the apartment.  It is in no way finished and there are a lot of things (decoration-wise) I don't like about it yet, but it's getting there.

Here are a bunch of pictures of everything in the initial stage of unpacking:
entrance.  not much to see yet.
There are a bunch of boxes of books in the living room I have plans of selling online/half price bookstore or giving them away (see corner behind the floral chair that needs to be redone).
There is a little dining room area, but I'm currently using it as a study/bedroom for the puppy until my sister returns my dining room table (December).  The desk is still unfinished, but I'm hoping to get it completed in the next week or two.

Half of kitchen the day I moved in and hadn't unpacked anything yet.  Ignore the huge mess.
I just got this kitchen shelving unit from Target.  So easy to assemble and was really affordable ($30-40 range).  I purchased it in stores and am unable to link to it online.  It is a nice alternative to a pantry
Small telephone shelf.  I want to come up with something a little cuter than this to display, but this is all I have for now. 
Old school bathroom.  Not much to see here.
The closets appear small, but they are incredibly deep so there is a lot of storage space.  There is one closet in the living room and this one in the hallway across from the bathroom.
I was originally using the closet as a dog cage
...and what it looks like now.  I still need to go through and make it a little more organized.
I finally bought a real bed instead of sleeping on a twin mattress on the floor for four years.  This is the only picture of the bedroom I'm going to show because there are clothes everywhere and it all needs to be rearranged.
I have a to-do list a mile long, but it already feels like home.  I'm pretty much in love with the place!

      I have a bunch of pics of her on move in day laying around looking exhausted like she was actually doing work. Also, I shouldn't have bought black sheets with a white dog.. hindsight is 20/20.
