Dressed Up Dresser | Camille Styles
As a someone on a budget, I can’t really justify buying brand new furniture when what I already have is fine (if not really my style) so makeovers are the easiest way to create something ‘new’ with not a lot of cash. This dresser is an amazing piece that I can’t get enough of - the combo of gold and white is right up my alley, but you could really go with any colour combo - clashing, tonal, etc.

Converted Bench | Camille Styles
As part of my bedroom makeover project, I wanted a bench for the end of my bed - somewhere to lay my clothes for the next morning and top sit when I’m putting on my shoes. The bench I loved was of course $300, so I put it back on the drawing board. Then I saw this project and thought - yep, I’ve found a solution! And such a clever solution. I already have a couple of chairs, though if you don’t, have a look at your local op shop. Or you could try using a couple of wooden stools from IKEA. The best part - those very pretty little legs!

Metallic Brick Bookends | Camille Styles
I’ve been collecting homewares & DIY books for a while now, and I’ll tell you what - they are not the lightest things in the world. I had a beautiful pair of bookends my sister got me for Christmas that met their unfortunate fate under my Design*Sponge tome. These bookends however - no, not solid gold - bricks painted gold! And super girly with the lace. I don’t think these babies are going to get a chip on them, and they’ll keep those big books under control.

Pretty Simple: Easy On The Eyes | Camille Styles
This year I actually followed one of my New Year’s resolutions - to start wearing makeup. I can’t believe I actually did because I would rather have an extra twenty minutes sleep than put on makeup. But I actually love it and it makes me feel better when I wear it. I’ll wear bright pink lipstick, orange blush, but I’ve only ever used netural eyeshadow. But after seeing this, I think I need to start having a go at bright eyeshadow - it’s so fun! Now to try and master the eyeliner…

Suitcase Cat Bed | Camille Styles
Anyone who has a pet knows that if you want a stylish piece of anything for them, you need to shell out big bucks! It seems like as soon as they add diamantes to a cat collar they add another twenty bucks. And don’t get me started on cat beds. Even the ugly cat beds are expensive. When I saw this cat bed I thought - that’s cute but I bet it’s so…. wait, I can make it! Personally, I would remove the lid because my cat has a habit of getting stuck in things, and I could just see coming home and finding her stuck in the suitcase. I know Sophie would love this - furry, off the ground and I love it because it won’t ruin my decor! Haha! Though anyone who has a cat also knows that regardless of how expensive or well made a bed is for them, they will still sleep in yours!
