Hi. I'm not sure if this topic should go in just this category, seeing as it probably applies to a few different ones, but it fits here.
I am going to move myself and my 19 month old daughter from the coast of NC to the state of Washington this summer. I wish to ship as little as possible, so thrift stores will be my primary source of furniture and other housewares that will not fit into my car, and whatever little bit I absolutely wish to ship(think fabric, dressform, and whatever else might fit on a pallet of essential items.)
I am assuming I will be renting either a two bedroom apartment, or a one bedroom in which my daughter gets the bedroom, and I sleep on a futon couch, my dining table will double as a crafting table/schoolwork desk, and my bedroom will double as a living room.
Has anyone come across any great ideas for pulling off furniture on the cheap, like cheaper than thrift store? Or any great ideas for disguising a bedroom within a living room?
Or any great advice for moving 3,000 miles in general when you are a craft-addict?
