At last, the long awaited LA apartment makeover.. only 11 months late! In this ultimate apartment makeover, I transform a closet into a cozy ~aesthetic~ bedroom, restore thrifted furniture, propagate a small army of plants, make my own macrame plant hangers, contact paper my kitchen counters, paint my window frames, create a home office in my dining nook, spend way too long trying to assemble furniture, and wallpaper just about every surface in my apartment.

    So regarding how easily it comes off: paste the wall wallpaper, as any other, is usually made either from paper (very thin, easily torn, will likely not come off as one sheet fully) or more thicker flizeline (i think it's spelled like that) one, which feels like very thick almost cardboard. These ones come off better, but sometimes, depending on how humid the room is, a little bit of the underside may stay on the wall. Don't worry though, it's easily scraped off. if you only hang them for one year i expect it will be totally fine. esp if you didn't do any special prep work on your walls?

    you probably won't even see this, but if you do, i hope you're taking the time to do what you need to do to be okay enough right now. i've completely lost track of the number of times i've watched this video bc it's just so damn good, and i know we'll probably never meet, but i wanted to tell you that i believe in you so much. i love your values & ethics as a creator, and i think the content you make has a certain genius that will never be matched. i do & will continue to drop everything i'm doing whenever you post a new video, whether that's weekly or a year from now. sending consensual, virtual hugs if you want them

    If you haven't figured it out yet, refrigerator doors are designed to change direction. You just have to swap the door screws / hinges to the other side. If you look on top of the fridge you'll see the screw holes on the other side that you can use. It's a game changer!

    I don't care what anyone says... I LOVED the length of this video. I also dread the amount of time it would take to undo all of the effort she put into making it her own space. I think, since some people upgrade/update spaces and it seems to add value the apartments should be thankful and not ask for everything to go back to the cookie cutter version. I'm currently packing to move out of LA but I am so ready to watch another video. 🤣

    Whos waching this in 2021 is legend


    I did not catch your name and I curse like a sailor so we have that in common. I have a boyfriend but we have not been intimate in about 2 yrs. First hus mom became ill and he spent lots of time caring for her and she eventually passed away. About the time she passed away I was moving out of my condo of 20 yrs which I greatly loved. Wish I had a cell phone with the internet back than as it was an awesome dwelling known as the largest one bedroom complex in all of Northern VA. I had 2 walk in closets. I wish one would have been as big as your bedroom because I would have made a sewing room. My mom has terminal cancer now and it's been a shock especially since she walks close to a mile even in 40 degree weather. She first smoke she doesn't drink has been a servent of Christ for years is very active in her church and why is she sick and the 28 year old snot st work who bulleys me to no end lights a cig with a cig and comes to work drunk most days does not have terminal cancer. I wiuld have liked to know what your rent was and what line of business you were in and what do you like yo sew. I use to live in San Mateo, Calif. I now live in Arlington, VA. My condo was 8 min from historic old town. I have been working at a car dealership since 2005 I am the only female in my apartment. I am in charge of field disposal. We will throw sometimes $25,000 of parts away in dumpsters. I keep all the silver and copper engine oil washers because I make jewerly with them. I keep large metal rings thinking someday making something with them. I love refinishing furniture and I have many antiques. Somewhere packed in a box I have my bottle collection. Well, it is almost 1am and 6am will come quick. I wish I was young again like you I would try to be more hip. My nephew just graduated from college in June and he works in Manhattan a d he lives in Greeneich Viliage . I subscribed do hope to see you again. Rebekah in Arlington, VA

    My ex-husband built vertical storage above our entry door and around the entire space. The building was built in 1936 and had 12 foot ceilings so we utilized the vertical space. The bookcases had one vertical shelf in the corner which supported the entire thing. It was pressure mounted no screws. You didn't notice unless you looked up. I bought nice baskets for the shelves. He built a queen size bunk bed in the closet. I monted a curtain rod on the ceiling and hung linen curtains. The space was very intimate and cozy. Under the corner of the clostet window, he built a desk and an open cabinet above it. I stained them to match the trim on the woodwork. We spent 3 yrs there. When we moved out, the manager asked if we would leave the built-in bookcases and desk in place. We left them and 10 yrs later, they are still there. We know this because the manager and I became friends. I loved our so-called bedroom because it was very cozy. Our bedroom closet had two doors and a window. I loved it! It's your space!
