life // sideboard styling
during one of my many phases, I got all sad and grumpy at the lack of awesome things I own. with my new “freelancing” status, I have less of that spare cash lying around to treat myself to useless things. I look at this as a good thing, but that doesn’t stop that “retail therapy” craving. nevermind.
sometimes a bit of a mix up and change can help though. my ikea shelves had been looking a little abused these last few weeks, the poor neglected things. so today I tried to pull together some different pieces from around the place to make things look a bit prettier. I painted some SUPER OLD wooden frames that used to have my year 7 high school art in them (found in the BIN at my mums place*…) and turned what were boring ugly timber frames into something pretty and white.
still not perfect, but I am happy with the fresh clean whiteness for now.
*I was more devastated about the frames being biffed than the art, considering that the art has since been thrown out by me.
