#RBSpacelift: Before and After

Last week, I finally got around to putting up all my lovely stuff from Redbubble and taking some before/after pics. I’ve always been really self conscious about my living spaces, at least since I started blogging. For the longest time, I moved from one dump to another because I just couldn’t be bothered doing up a place for six months and then leaving. In the past couple of years, however, I’ve turned a new leaf and departed from my former filth aesthetic to become somewhat of a fastidious and houseproud mashima

My bedroom had been looking quite bare since I got it painted back in May, so when Redbubble offered to give my room a #spacelift, I realised that’s exactly what my walls needed!  I’ve tagged the artists’ Redbubble pages for all the individual products below the photos. Do go and have a look at their galleries! 

And don’t forget! Redbubble is also giving 20% off all home goods with the code RaginiRBSpaceLift20.

I’d DIY’ed the pompom hanging a while ago, and I made some frames out of leftover cardboard and takeaway bags (!!) to go with the overall look. Ever since I started bothering about my surroundings, I’ve found myself drawn to the handmade, bohemian, wabi-sabi style of decor. And while I don’t have a huge amount to spend on prettying up my space, I love adding little DIYed touches that are very, very me.
