~ style on a budget - get the look ~
Let me introduce you to my temporary WIR on a $38 budget!
It was the old laundry but it was gutted and the old back door was pulled out.
A skylight was cut out and a sliding door into the master bedroom was installed ~
so for the first time in my life I have my very own walk-in-closet!
This was the last priority on the list so when the budget run out
my beautiful floor to ceiling joinery and shoe racks got ditched.
Along with the ensuite it's now part of stage II of the reno, which all happens next year.
In the interim, I had the task of making it look presentable on a shoestring.
I bought 2 wheelie racks from Ikea for $19 each and that was it.
The bookshelves I salvaged from my husband's shed.
They were covered in paint, nails and oil stains
but after a few coats of glossy, white paint they came up shiny and new.
Paint really does work miracles!
The rest is just stuff I've collected over the years.
I now have a lovely home for my favourite things which include ~
my Chanel make-up and shoes, my LV handbags,
my favourite mags, books, perfumes and candles.
When I'm working out my day's outfit I'm in heaven.
The Megan Hess Chanel print is one of my treasured pieces.
I think it just goes to prove a tight budget can still produce stylish results!
