Location: Boston, Massachusetts
My husband and I moved into the city this September and were shocked at how hard it was to find a decent place for a decent price! We ended up in a "garden level" apartment that needed a lot of TLC.
We're working on little projects as we go, but spending as little money as possible, since we're on a grad student budget. Our bathroom is looking tons better (from sickly salmon to beachy blue) and our kitchen is also brighter and updated. I've attached some BEFORE and AFTER photos.
