Congratulations! You've finally found a place to call your own. Now you have to turn it into a real home--and that takes both practical and creative smarts. From hanging shelves to choosing colors, these eminently doable projects, sensible how-tos, and marvelous photos are exactly what new apartment dwellers need. See how to make a simple floor plan and figure out what goes where. Spruce up with basics on everything from painting walls to refinishing furniture. Go straight to the "cheat sheets" for instant information on essential purchases. And because first apartments often aren't perfect, take a tip on turning existing decorating features into designs that work for you: separate a large room into two smaller spaces with a hanging divider. Make your own curtain rods, or decorate old ones with finials. With dozens of inventive ideas for lighting, furniture, accessories, and storage, even the most creatively challenged can decorate in no time!
