Oh lookie, another post purely about my bedroom, taken from my bedroom, and written, well, from the sofa cos gurl gotta mix things up y’know?
As part of a bruiser of an IKEA order I put in a few weeks ago (I mean, it wasn’t that hefty, I just needed a new desk chair because my old one literally snapped in half – no YOU need to lay off the pizza, and a full-length mirror), I got a couple of these picture rail thingies (they’re £6 each and you can shop it here).
We used to have three prints all in the same size hanging above the bed, and as cute and Carrie Bradshaw as that was, I was bored and wanted to mix things up and woah where’s my marble H&M home frame gonna go?
So we did this.
Chris and I are planning on maybe hanging a couple of plants from the ceiling on one side, and filling a cagey shelving unit from Urban Outfitters on the other side with 6754675 plants (all fake of course because let’s just take a moment to appreciate the plant killing bitch we’re dealing with here).
The orig plan had been to not leave a gap in the middle and create one long shelf but turns out drilling holes *that* precisely is not a thing and well, let’s just say there’s an accidental cave going on behind that shelf. Soz house.
So yeah, we have a gap in the middle, and the frames and prints have been strategically placed to hide the hooks from our original photo hanging plan. And yes, that wordy one in the middle WILL go in a frame rather than just hang awkwardly but ahem, Granger has eaten an entire corner of it because of course he has ffs.
I’ve had a few people ask where specific prints are from since uploading a lil snap of this bad boy shelf to Insta this week, so I thought I’d list them all below for ya.
Now to just hope and pray to the interior gods that none of it falls on me whilst I sleep.
