Back home

My dad is back home after dealing with some medical issues, and I wanted to make his apartment a bit cheerier as well as better equipped to handle his mobility accommodations.  Enter: the budget-friendly apartment refresh!  I thought an upholstered headboard would be more comfortable than his old wood one, for starters.  A new bedside lamp made things feel cozy, as did a bit of (faux) greenery and a tasseled throw for the bed.  I also added a sweet macrame basket — it was just right to wrangle coils of oxygen tubing, and the soft cotton won’t scratch or snag the tubes like wicker could.  A new lower media console helped to open up the space and make it feel bigger.  And lastly, I hung up a cork board to help him corral doctor appointment reminders, stray sheets of stamps, and important phone numbers.  My dad seemed happy with his fresh space, and I was incredibly gratified that I could help with his transition back home.  Success!
