D.I.Y Workspace

The challenge.... decorate your workspace for $50.00. The result... I now want to spray paint everything!
I've never been a big Value Village shopper (much more of a Guys Frenchy's kind of gal) but with a small budget and big ideas off I went.

First stop, the frame/art section. First and foremost, you MUST look beyond the "artwork" that is in the frames and look at the frames themselves. I was drawn to thicker frames with nice depth and textures.

Then it was off to the lighting section. I have always loved those bright coloured table lamps you see in home magazines so when I saw the shape of a little green/black one in the corner I grabbed it.

The glassware section of Value Village is like a little treasure chest. I wanted a vase that wouldn't overwhelm my soon to be desk light so I picked up a medium sized one with a simple curve.

Then it was off to Home Depot to find some bright spray paint! The colour selection was really impressive but I settled on Green Apple, Aqua Blue and white.

A couple of coats on every item and I couldn't be happier with the results!

The best part about these pictures is that it's June and you are outside in pants and a hoodie! xx
