I’m more than a little embarrassed to show this picture because now the secret is out about what a cluttered person I am. That’s right no matter how hard I try (which I’ll admit is probably not as hard I should) I always seem to amass piles of clutter. This is what my bedside locker has looked like for the past few weeks months.
Shocking right? Let’s see shall we? In addition to my painstakingly sewn patchwork pillows thrown carelessly down the side...there’s at least 6 books, 2 dvds, a huge tangled pile of jewellery, 14 hair ties, a dog toy, a cable needle for knitting…and numerous numerous other things piles of documents and let’s face it…junk!
I decided enough was enough and decided to do a small little update (and a massive spring cleaning) and $13 later I have a pretty and functional bedside locker again.
I picked up a serving dish in target for $3 and it’s perfect for keeping my earrings under control. I hung the rest of the jewellery on my mini-mannequin that Kathy got me for Christmas last year. The basket $8 and photo frame $2 were a steal from World Market because of a sale and coupon combo – I love it when that happens.
The bedroom makeover needs a lot of work still, and honestly it’s the one area that A) has the least furniture and B) gets the least decorating attention but now that the rest of the house is coming together nicely it’s time to start thinking more about the bedroom décor again.
Look at how empty the walls are…they are crying out for some big art work and perhaps a photo collage of sorts, I’d also like to hang up my PhD degree certificate because it seems a shame to have it hidden away….and what about a large potted plant in that space between the wall and locker….what do you think?
