I'm moving into my first condo September 30th. I don't really own anything so I'm completely starting from scratch. I figured I'd start a thread to track my progress and to get input from the forum. The layout: 1332 sq feet.
What I've bought so far: Knives
Flatware
Things I'd like to incorporate: Mid-century modern furniture Home automation A couple DIY art projects Peter Lik photography What I need: Well, I need a lot considering all I own is knives and flatware. Most importantly I think I need more ideas! I'm meeting with a designer in the next couple weeks but I'd like to have a better idea of what I want by then. I've been religiously following http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/ the last little while but nothing there really strikes. Where else should I be looking?

What are you using to keep the edge on the Globals?

And the G-2 would of been sufficient for almost all your needs.

Is the apartment furnished (seems that way from the floor plan) or are you trying to buy MCM to furnish it? Nice grab. Seems pretty sick for someone our age.

I have no idea. Honestly, I was just thinking I'd take them somewhere to get sharpened when the need arose. Should I just be doing it myself?

No, it's not furnished. That's just the general layout of the place. I have to buy everything. And thanks, it's a pretty nice place. I'll post pictures once I get possession.

You need a steel, dude. Global makes ceramic ones for their knives. Maintain the edge, and you could avoid trips to the sharpener. And you have to be gentle with Globals when maintaining the edge.

I think this thread is about more important things than keeping the edge on his knives...

Like finding a table to put food on

Those knives will probably cost more than the table he gets.

Haha good point. I don't know what type of table I want but I love the look of these chairs:

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
