While it’s a luxury to have extra space around the house, it can be a curse if you have no idea how to use it. We had one of those spaces– a corner in our bedroom
. For months we’ve pondered how to make the most of it but we really didn’t want to fill it for the sake of filling it. One Saturday morning at around 7:30am our bedroom corner got some direction from a garage sale bargain, see below…
We bought a brand new leather chesterfield armchair from a garage sale
one morning for $80. From there we bought a standard lamp from our favourite op shop
for $20 [complete with safari themed lampshade] as well as the marble side table for $20. The elephant and camel print are sheets of wrapping paper from Zetta Florence
at $7.95 each while the frames were made at husbands work using left over timber from his students.
This corner has become one of the most popular places in our home- perfect for reading, phone calls or writing posts. While it might not be everyone's cup if tea [much like our carpet], for $135 or USD$86 even if it only suits us for a few seasons we think its money well spent.
