Ever since I created my decoupage table it has become a beautiful centre piece in our living room. Believe it or not the original table I purchased for this D.I.Y only cost me £5! It was originally meant to be £10 but I fluttered my eyelashes and pointed out a large scratch along the surface. So always try to barter when purchasing second hand furniture, because you never know- you could bag a complete bargain. An added bonus was that I could use the pennies I had saved to buy some floral craft paper from Paperchase for my chosen design.
To be frank, rented spaces can be annoying and I for one cannot wait to get my own place. I can’t wait to splash a bit of colour on the walls and hang a picture without the worry of filling in puncture holes. However, having said that I also love how the limitations of my rental allow me to think outside the box and be creative with my decorations.
Here are a few little touches that have made my rented space seem a lot more inviting and somewhere that I feel proud to call home.
