Its been a month or so since I finished the major work needed in my craft room, although the main work is done, the rest is a long way off. Already though, I love to spend as much time as I can in there. As I mentioned, all the major work has been done – the 6+ hours of hand painting the pink stripes grey, could have just bought a stripe wallpaper… but where’s the DIY in that?!
I’ve been scouring the web, searching for those special little somethings that will give my craft room that finished luxurious feel, the accessories that will take it from DIY to fabulous work room.
Heres my (rather unrealistic) wish list.
Chair – £279: Ebay.
Foley multicoloured bookcase – £128.99 : Argos.
Hemnes glass fronted cabinet – £250 : Ikea.
Annie Sloan chalk paint in Burgundy – £18.95 : Annie Sloan
West elm rug – £299 : John lewis.
Bumblebee cushion – £9.60 : Marks & Spencers.
Roberts revival radio – £199 : John lewis.
Gold frame – £17.99 : Zara home.
Antique finish black frame – £19.99 : Zara home.
Parks London Candle (Ylang ylang & Sandalwood) – £9.99 : TKmaxx.
Its all so calming, but still kind of dramatic. Exactly the kind of vibe I want my room to have. Now… to save the grand or so that needed to achieve this look. – Kidding- I’ll scour my local second hand shops, ebay, Facebook selling pages to achieve this look for much less. I’ll keep you all updated.
