As I mentioned in my last post I'm currently turning my spare room in to an office/dressing room, which I have been really enjoying doing. I have lots of painting and wallpapering left to do plus I also need to hang some pictures and put up my nail polish rack, but I have bought everything I need and all my accessories are out on my desk.
So I thought I would just show a few things I specifically bought for the room because they were quite inexpensive.
After seeing the lovely Louise from Sprinkle of Glitter mention the cute Rabbit Night Light (£4.95 - here) she bought from DotComGiftShop for her daughter, I had to have it! Yes, it is slightly childish but I love whimsical objects that bring a smile to my face. Plus I love that it is just battery operated so it can be placed anywhere on my desk... I'm sure it will look lovely as the nights start to go darker earlier and I can switch it on as I blog.
However because the DotComGiftShop was totally new to me I was lured in by all the other pretty products they sell and ended up buying a Traditional School Milk Bottle (£2.95 - here) which I love so much. I think it looks great as a vase. As for the flowers I bought some artificial ones (can't be doing with fresh flowers and water) for around £4 from Dunelm Mill - I thought adding the fluffy pom pom grass with the red roses was a nice mix. I now want to buy three of the milk bottles for in my kitchen lined up I think.
I also bought an old fashioned sweets jar that holds a few lip glosses from Matalan for £3 and the postcards under my desk mainly came from Paperchase (60p each), but the laser cut Rob Ryan ones were originally cards that I cut in half. As for the dog (Ruby) sat on the chair... well she is priceless.
Once I have put up my DIY notice boards, art prints and nail polish rack I will definitely do another post showing them and maybe even a DIY post on the notice boards as they were so cheap to make.
