So I’ve just had my room changed up a little from children’s furniture to adult furniture. I now feel tiny in my room of giant furniture but I’m absolutely in love! Read along to see what changes were made and get some inspiration…
I had a bedside table and a set of five drawers which left a gap in the middle where I often stored some of my camera stuff. The set of drawers were starting to slightly fall apart but they’ve been going strong for a good amount of years considering I’ve had them since I was 2!
In the corner of my room, I had this tiny wooden desk. It was sturdy and fitted perfectly in that corner but it was too small and I needed something bigger. I also had a couple of shelves above it to display some things.
We ventured off to Ikea and found the perfect furniture that would fit in my room and that I would also love.
I replaced my bedside table with a ‘Hemnes 2 drawer chest’ I love that this still matches my bedside light and has a bigger space on top to display some things. We bought a huge ‘Hemnes chest of 6 drawers’. The drawers are so spacious and the really deep one is perfect for all my chunky knits. I did, however, find it’s very tall and its sudden largeness made everything look a bit lost at first when displayed on top. I’m getting used to it now though and love the extra storage.
My dressing table is probably my favourite new piece of furniture just because I’ve always envied people who have a proper traditional-style dressing table. It’s a huge jump up from my teeny tiny desk and chair and has a hidden drawer for all my makeup! I’d really love to do a more in-depth blog post about how I’ve styled it. The telly needs to be moved up a tad away from the mirror (my Dad is on the case) but that’s another job for another day. Other than that I’m obsessed and I haven’t stopped playing around with it.
I know this was a bit of a random blog post but I thought it was just a bit of fun and it was also interesting to see the changes. I am so unbelievably grateful for the new additions to my room and I love it so much! Please like and follow my blog Xx
