Getting the details down

Slowly slowly, bit by bit. Today was a really intense day, but I'm really pleased with how the apartment is coming along. Tomorrow is when I get the trunk for my excess linens, and some plants for a little something living and green.
In the meantime, I'm hammering out some minor details for smaller things to tackle.

On the left, the cup on my desk that used to hold all my pencils and pens. On the right, the new cup, snagged on clearance at target. I think the new one's a teensy bit more professional looking.

Art thingy I picked up from the goodwill near my house for a dollar. It needs a little super glue surgery to be perfect again. If I can successfully operate, it'll be a funky little thing to go on the walls. If I can't fix it, then I have a nifty frame I can use instead. I can't lose.

I think both of these projects combined cost me about 2 dollars. They don't make a massive difference in terms of the overall appeal, but they're there to add in that last extra bit. There's a couple other things I spruced up, but those are for another time.
