So last week Jen from i heart organizing set a little challenge - Project Pretty. And I thought after all the "real" home posts I've been doing, I could do with a little pretty challenge.
Mine kind of spiraled. But I'll explain!
So some of you know I've just set up an Etsy shop selling cards and art. But at the moment I've just been storing them on top of my desk. Not ideal. So I popped to Wilkinsons and spent £3.69:
Then I covered it in vinyl and alphabet stickers,
I punched out a couple of butterflies too, because bright pink just wasn't girly enough for me...
I also cut the dividers down so they fit the box and labelled.
So the cards are protected and organised by type. Perfect.
Plus there's even space for space supplies!
And for those of you who have been following a little while who are thinking "Wait, doesn't her bookcase look more like this?"
Well, up until two days ago it did, but "unfortunately" our £30 bookcase had had enough of being overloaded with books for five years and one of the shelves snapped off. (It was doing some serious bowing on the sides too.)
So we jumped on the Expedit bandwagon (actually my wonderful husband's idea!):
I am absolutely loving it in this space! It opens up the space, and does the job of one Billy bookcase, two dvd billys and a drawer.
There will be a LOT of pictures to come soon when I settle on a perfect way to organise and accessorize it!
But for now...
And I'm actually really loving the hubs green doors. But am curious as to what colour rug I should get to go with them...
