Anniversary Week: The Old Apartment Part 2

This is part 2 of our apartment tour, the rest of the 900 sq ft 1 bedroom that we called home for 3.5 years.

Our kitchen left a lot to be desired. The cabinets were too dark and made of cheap faux wood, the linoleum was old and damaged, the countertops laminate.  However it had a large spacious pantry, a dishwasher (oh I miss having a dishwasher!), and enough room for our giant cabinet.  It also had more counter space than we have now.

We painted the bedroom Palladian Blue, the same blue we used in our house in the sun room and our current bedroom.  We liked it too much to let it go.  The spacious room also boasted his and her closets and sliding glass doors out to a small balcony.

I loved the balcony.  We never sat out there and enjoyed the view of the parking lot, but I loved it because I had a potted garden out there filled with tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and flowers.  Having a garden, however small, kept me going until we had a yard.

Oh and here's a quick picture of the bathroom too.  It was ugly and had no natural light, but we've both lived through worse.
