small studio type apartment interior design
(introductory music) hey guys. so, i am here at nextub in this really gross apartment set. they're tearing it down tonight, so i decided to setmyself the crazy challenge to see if i could redecorate it and make it actually looklike a nice apartment. i've never done anythingat quite this scale
and i only have aboutfour hours to finish it. so, let's see how it goes. (music interlude) so, the first thing we're gonna do is just remove all the clutter. (funk music) so, i've got some friends here to help me and so now, it is time to paint. we only had one can of paint.
so, the walls are a little uneven, but they're white, whichis better than that gross yellowy tan and the nextthing we're gonna do is paint the windowsill and the fridge. so, i just went out and bought paint and we're gonna do thisreally pretty teal color, which already is gonna be so much better. so, let's get to that. - (whispers) beautiful.
i found a whole bunch of mason jars, so i decided to do thisreally easy project where i got a rainbow of paint swatches from the hardware store. they're completely free. i just cut the very top of it and then, you just stick it in a mason jar and kinda smush it in there a little and then put the top on and that's it.
you've got a very pretty rainbow of jars if you have too many jars and not enough things to put in them. normally, with rust, you'dhave to do some sort of fancy thing or justreplace the whole thing, but this is painted on rust, so i can just paint it away. so, that's it, i think we're done. that was almost exactly four hours
from start to finish and itlook so much different now. i'm probably just like a hot, sweaty mess covered in paint, althoughi did think i managed to keep it off of myclothes for the most part. it's not perfect. there are definitely some little gaps where you can still see theold apartment seeping in. but, let me take you through and show you all of the stuff that i did manage to fix.
for this shelf, i kind of had to scavenge around all the junk that's in this studio and just pull out everything i could find that wasn't dirty or gross. i already told you guys about these paint swatch mason jars that i made. and then, down below, we justhave random kitchen equipment, all black and white because i thought all the colored stuff was kinda gross.
so, for the furniture, i kind of stole some furniture from the lobby out in the youtube space. over on the other table,i filled this cupcake tin that i found with these buttons that i had bought atmichaels the other day, which is, i don't know,not really practical. you're not gonna makecupcakes out of buttons, but it looks really cute.
we actually got rid of the sink and replaced it with a couch. so, it's not really a kitchen any more. it's more like a living room with a refrigerator, butit looks a lot nicer. obviously, one of the biggest changes we made was the color. i think this teal really bringsa lot of life into the room, especially after thatugly yellow grossness
that you can still kinda seepeeking out at the bottom, but we don't have to look over there. so, i don't know ifpainting your refrigerator is actually like, a practical thing to do, but we did it so, if youhave an ugly refrigerator, maybe type into google,can i paint my refrigerator and who knows, maybe this'llwork on your fridge too. so, the one thing i wish we could really have changed about this space
is to put some huge pieceof artwork right here over these chairs onthis empty blank wall. you guys know how much ihate an empty , blank wall. but, unfortunately, ididn't have any posters or paintings and if i printedanything from the internet, there's like copyrightand blah, blah, blah. so, we just had to leavethat blank for now. but, use your imagination. over here, we just have this cart that
used to have this reallyugly microwave on top of it. but, i just cleaned itoff and the cart itself is actually in really good shape. so, i just rolled it overhere next to the refrigerator, put these dish towels on the corners for a little bit oftexture and then i just decorated the top with some things i found on sale at michaels yesterdayand some other stuff that i scoured from the depths of the junk
that is in this studio and then, i don't know what order i'llbe posting these videos, but either you do recognize this birdhouse or you will recognize this birdhouse. so, stay tuned for that. so, thank you all so much for watching. i'm so glad this managedto come together in the end so i could actually havea video to show you guys. i was so stressed this morning
that we wouldn't have time to finish it and that everything would go wrong, but i think it came out alright. so, thank you so much to all of my friends who helped me paint becauseif they didn't help paint, this would not have gotten done. so, i'll put links to alltheir channels down below. you should definitely go check them out. if you're new here of if you'vemissed my last few videos,
i'll put my last two videos right here and right here. make sure to subscribe and like if you liked the video and i will see you all next time. so the thing is, i really like set design, but they're gonna tearit all down in an hour, but it was so fun to doand there was no pressure 'cause i wasn't gonna live here,
but now it turned out goodand it's gonna be gone. i don't even know what to do.
