Remember that desk I got last week? Well, as I feared, it’s starting to turn into a happy landing spot for all kinds of unwelcome clutter. Oy.
So begins Operation MakeTheDeskPretty, in an effort to discourage such landings.
But being on a teeny budget, I figured I’d give the ole “rock what you got” a try, and scavenge around my apartment to see what pretty stuff I already had that was not doing any beautifying. “Luckily,” I had some pretty stuff just sitting around doing nothing. You might have seen what I did with it in one of yesterday’s pictures:
See it? I’m pretty happy with it. Basically it’s a metal candle tray, some polished river pebbles, fabric cherry blossoms and tea lights. If I were to buy everything for this new, it would cost me less than $10.
And it’s just so pretty!
Lots of times I just want to say, “Flowers, earn your keep.” Well, when strategically placed, this is a great way for them to do that. What do you guys use as clutter scarecrows? Does pretty-ness matter, or does it have to do more than that for you to consider it functional/worth the space it occupies?
