Hallelujah!






Ta-da! I finally got my arse into gear and organised a pretty workspace for myself......It needed to be three things: pretty, functional and pretty. You get the idea! Somewhere where I could sit, blog, play bills and get my life organised! (Because lets face it the other room I showed you was just too atrocious and no before you ask I haven't got to that room yet!) The gorgeous antique table was actually my mothers (that she gave me on a whim and now wishes she hadn't). It hasn't had handles for like ever so I went to Bunnings and found these gorgeous, gold, shell-like, semi-circle handles that I just adore! Two drawers: One for my diary and the other for all of my desk paraphernalia. (pencils/pens/etc). Ikea magazine holders, an unused dining chair and cushion from my lounge, a rattan basket to store paperwork, and hey presto makeover magic - a lovely little workstation. Now of course I didn't buy anything at all, just collected/transferred unused things from around the house. I can't see myself sitting on that dining chair for long though so I think my next purchase will definitely be a nice office chair......So you like?
