As you may already know, we recently moved to a new apartment and my in-laws live a few doors down from us!  When you move to a new place, you quickly realize that you need new things or even replace your old things.  Furnishing and decorating your new home is one way people are able to make it their own, especially living in an apartment.  I am working on making it a home.
