How To Spruce Up My Small Old Apartment?

Good Questions

Q: I'm in my early 20's and in the midst of moving into a small one-bedroom apartment that is a bit less glamorous than I had hoped. It's a converted apartment in an old house, which means odd layout (I go through my bedroom to get to the kitchen), uneven walls, wonky drawers that don't shut, etc. What small (relatively inexpensive) improvements would have the most impact in sprucing the place up? The landlord is open to me painting and doing small changes, with her approval.Sent by Katherine
