Revamping My Space

Okay guys, if you guys recall, I’ve been telling you guys that my room (and house) is going to be undergoing a major haul.

 

This week, I will be repainting my entire house. As promised, I will be documenting this entire journey, and I am going to be sharing it with you, so stay tuned on my blog.

 

Do you guys know how hard it can be, to select the right shade for your space? It’s crazy. And that’s just the paint bit, ok? Don’t even get me started on shopping for the furniture.

 

 

I want to fill out the entire place and the furniture list in never ending. See just some of my wish list items below:

  • A canopy swing
  • A swinging bed (don’t even ask me why!!)
  • A book shelf!
  • A nice canopy bed
  • A little mini sofa

 

So basically, let’s get real here, these things are certainly not going to come cheap. Dang, they’ll cause a huge dent in my bank account. But then again, they’re definitely necessary well for me at least.

 

So I was googling some of the ways to either revamp my current furniture (oh, I am not so artistically inclined, Pinterest!!), or buy some used furniture. BINGO! That’s what I am actually planning to do!!

 

In fact, I quickly hopped onto google, and googled some sites to buy furniture. And that is when I came across Gumtree!!

So, I was browsing through their catalogue, and they’ve got a HUGE variety of items available on their site. And what’s the best part? You can contact the seller directly, and go for a personal viewing of the items.

 

As we are talking about this, I have already booked appointments with 2 of the sellers this week!! I really hope to finalise the deals!! Gosh! And not just that, but what is attractive about this whole concept is that I can sell my own furniture too, you know? So, I am not exactly spending money then. Because, hey, I will eventually be getting back what I’m going to be spending, innit? ;)

 

I will show you some of the items I am planning to purchase:

Above: Deep Red-Black Sofa- $785 (sale), originally was priced at $1285

Above: Black Antique French Shelf- $200 (sale), originally was priced at $600

 

Aren’t they gorgeous? And you can clearly see the price difference between the sales items and the original retail price. I cannot wait to show you guys how they look like when I get them!!

Guys, I want you to keep watching this space, because I will definitely be sharing and documenting my journey of before and after!!!

Thank you so much for reading, and I hope you’re having a great week! :)
