digging my new digs

when i left canada, i decided i wanted to bring only the stuff that would fit in my little wee car. the rest i got rid of, or pawned off onto unsuspecting friends. the result was that when i got here, i had to buy pretty much everything i needed to have a decent room. i spent under $500 (the bed i’m borrowing. thanks, angie!) at Ikea, Target and some thrift stores and this is what i got!





toss pillows, target: $12
teal sheets, ikea: $18
red comforter set with shams and skirt, target: $50
bedside table/stool, target: $35
red sheers, target: $9
wire basket drawer set with wood cabinet door as tabletop, ikea: $29
large dark wood cabinets (not pictured), ikea: $175


that’s my chinese papercut art. it’s beautiful. only $30 in vancouver’s chinatown.
