In This Week/Request for DIY help

The longer and longer I remain in the 9-5 it seems that these posts get more and more boring. I'm close to wrapping up a web project at work so that should hopefully be finished next week. My work BFF was off last week so it was pretty quiet for me. Oh the days when my days were varied with university life. 

And onto the dressing table in the picture. This was a dresser that I was watching on ebay that had no bids and I thought was safe until payday. Unfortunately fate intervened and it was no longer to be as I spotted the listing had been replaced by a desk (why not just delete this listing and create a new listing...?). After some whining on Twitter Louise used her wisdom to tell me that there is a high chance I should be able to DIY this, as it is just a dresser with some wallpaper on it.

So instead of prattling on about my week which involved devising a cleaning rota for myself and the flatmate I am using this Sunday post to call out to anyone who might know where I can get snazzy pin-up girl or other uber-retro wallpaper (apparently this is Vivienne Westwood) and a plain vintage shaped dresser which doesn't involve a gigantic courier cost to get it to Glasgow? That isn't eBay or Gumtree? I'm going to be hunting high and low (this is a mission, I really wanted that dresser #firstworldproblems) but I would love if anyone had some suggestions or advice. DIY and vintage furniture shopping (or furniture shopping on the whole) isn't something I have a lot of experience in. 

Lots of eBay bidding war love people!

    1. Haha thank you Louise. The guy from work who spied on our lube chat has given me some tips so should be okay - spotted a similar dresser on eBay that I can decorate.

  3. Good luck with that! That's so pretty! I really like your blog! I'm glad that I found it! It would be nice if you could stop by my blog sometime too (I'm from England) as I post my outfits, personal style, likes and much more :) :)

  4. Wow this is impressive, hope it all works for you - i'm sure it'll look great :) x

    1. Found a similar shaped dresser on ebay just yesterday that allows for courier so hopefully it will!
