I would first like to pose a forewarning before you read this post: This is my first blog of this type and I didn't think about having matching Before / After angles in my photos. You'll have to forgive my first unfortunate attempt and trust that any further before / after photos will give you the same angles for both pictures so that you can have a clearer idea of what the situation was / is about.
So, on that note.
When I first came home from Switzerland I was greeted first by my parents at the airport (yay!) and second by my old room looking somewhat like this:

I'm still not quite sure if I should have waited until I was going to Ikea to just suck it up and spend more money or go with this one which I'm pretty satisfied with anyway. Have you ever paid less for something that you wanted the more expensive version? I'm definitely guilty of doing that many times but more often it's with clothing. On this wall, I still want to make my own dry erase board, put a shelf up, take down or repaint that mirror (although, there are some gems hot glued on there that won't budge) and do something about the scarf situation. It's still a work in progress but I'm much happier with it like this than before.

Has anyone else wanted to redo a space they couldn't spend a lot of money on? What about tips for perfume or scarf storage? I feel like they're both just taking over the space.
Thanks for reading!
