Remember a few months ago when I made a post about how I was planning to re-decorate my room? Well... I did finish. Probably like 80% of it. And then my boyfriend asked me to move in with him so there was no point to bother with my room anymore lol!! I was pretty sad because I had spent so much time fixing up my room and I was honestly so happy with the results that I didn't want to move out. But my boyfriend really wanted me to be there for him and so I agreed to move into his apartment. I'll do a posting on my room and give a review about the various products that I bought for it when I have more time. In the meantime... I'm on a new mission to re-decorate. This time i'll be re-decorating my boyfriend's apartment!! We've already bought a couple of things from Ikea but there is still a lot that I'm planning to buy.

Things to buy:

Ikea Mulig Clothes Rack
There is closet/den on the right hand side when you first enter my boyfriend's apartment. It used to be full of empty boxes and junk but I've taken the time to throw everything away. I'm going to turn it into an area for our winter jackets and maybe some of my shoes since we don't have enough room in our shoe closet. I'm going to buy one of these clothes racks from Ikea and stick it in there!

Ikea Expedit Shelf in White
This shelf is perfect for our computer room. I like it in white because it's fresh looking to me. I'll use it to store my school binders and maybe some photo albums.

Ikea Knipsa and Branas Storage Boxes
I want to put these wooden boxes inside the expedit shelf. I'm just not sure which one I would choose yet. 

Ikea Bjursta Sideboard Table
I would place this table in our hallway right by our kitchen and dining room. Our kitchen is a little small on storage place and so I can use this to store things like our blender, deep fryer, rice cooker, etc. I think it'll look nice if I place picture frames on top! 

Ikea Hemnes Mirror
I want to stick this on the wall above that table. If I don't place a mirror there then I'll probably put some sort of nice painting instead.

Ikea Malm Sidetable
I want side tables for our bed. I don't really like these but they were the nicest ones on the Ikea site. I want to put one on each side of the bed with lamps on top. Then I can store my books and remote controls inside the drawers. I chose black-brown because our bed frame is black.

What we've bought so far:
Ikea Stave Mirror in White
Bought this mirror to hang inside our walk in closet. 

As you can see it hasn't been hung yet lol

Ikea Benzy Bedsheets
Since I am now living with a BOY and can't have purple girly bedsheets... I opted for this print. 

This looks like a nice "unisex" bedroom!

Ikea Skubb Closet Organizers
I convinced my boyfriend to let me buy purple closet storage since it would be for "my clothes"! The only girly thing that I get in this apartment. I used the boxes to put things like my scarves, socks, hats, and underwear in.

One last look at our walk in closet. Notice how the majority of the space is taken up by my boyfriend? Not impressed.

When you enter our apartment, to the left side is a closet that is supposed to be for some shoes and winter coats. I decided to turn that closet into a closet just for shoes while the closet/den across from it will be for our winter coats (as I had mentioned above). We bought two of these hanging black shoe holders which are great! 

The light beige ones on the left are from Beyondtherack. They were a rip off and can only hold one shoe. The Ikea ones are MUCH better and are cheaper too. I'm planning to buy more because as you can see there is still not enough space for our shoes. PS: 90% of these shoes are my boyfriend's... geeze
