The Pitch:

I may be a college student, but I really didn’t want a college student’s apartment. My parents bought this apt. sight unseen on the advice of a realtor. It was horrendous, but I was determined to make it better.

Copy of P1010016.JPG The kitchen had to be gutted, and the bathroom was in terrible shape, but I did like (and decided to keep) the pink and black tiles in there, and the floors all had to be refinished. My parents paid for those things, but I was pretty much on my own for the furnishings, etc.
