My own Blogging Nook!

When I set my mind on something, my goodness I am good at getting it done! I did a wee post a few weeks ago about the desire to have my own little blogging station, my own personal corner of the house that I could call ‘just’ mine – and now that has become a reality!

Over the weekend I paid Ikea a visit, clearly by the photo buying waaaay more than I intended to go in for! However Ikea is just a fabulous place, filled with such treasures that some of them just happen to find their way into my trolley – shame! 😉 However I was able to get ‘pretty’ much everything I went in for.
IkeaFirst of all the table I wanted was a gorgeous Miche table with a pair of drawers, but when I saw it in person, it was about 3in too big for the alcove I had for it at home, so I needed to find an alternative. I came across this gorgeous black & white bubble effect table top and at only £15 how could I resist! The other one I had in mind was going to cost me £65 – can anyone say money saaaaver!! And I have to admit, I am a little bit in love with it! The legs only cost an additional £2.50 per leg, but for £25 all in, who could complain!

I was also approached by a company to do a poster review, which I have since designed and sent off, so I managed to pick up two poster frames from Nyttja to go above my desk. I decided to go with a white frame as the main wall next to my chosen nook space is english fire red and I thought the white frames to add a little more light and crispness to the area and also since I saved money on the desk, I didn’t mind paying the £7 each per frame.

The next thing I was after was a cool desk lamp and when I came across this awesome looking Forsa work lamp, I kind’ve fell a little bit in love! And when I saw the price tag *coughs* £15 I don’t think it was possible to turn down that offer.

The chair I went for was nothing special, no big super comfy leather bound swivel chair, oh no, I went with a cute and dinky {considering the space I have to play with} swivel chair from Snille and an adorable fee of just £14.50! I also picked up some little filing boxes for any bits & bobs.

At other stores I was able to pick up a few more treasures, this gorgeous set of heart drawers from Home Bargains was one of them, costing just £2.99. Total bargain!

I have got it mostly put in place, as I’ve been sharing a few snipets over on my instagram, but I need a few other touches yet before I can reveal it all in her full glory! So all will be revealed soon!
