I picked up this set of 3 small bud vases called the Sommar 2017 from IKEA. I was specifically looking for small vases for styling and while I liked the size and the shapes of the vases, the colours (specifically the mint and pink) didn’t go with our decor. Since I still had some gold leaf and adhesive left over from the gold leaf jewelry trays project, I decided to gold leaf two of the three vases.
I bought a set of small white rectangular 7″ x 5″ serving plates to use for jewelry and other odds and ends. However, since the trays I purchased were very plain, with a simple etched pattern, I thought that adding interest to them with gold leaf might make them more appealing.
I’ve seen similar gold and white jewelry trays retailing for significantly more than the less than $20 I paid for my supplies, which were used to create 4 trays. For instance, without naming names, one well-known designer retails a very small gold and white jewelry tray for more than $70.

Fuzzy stools are still everywhere. They’re definitely a trendy statement piece and if Pinterest is any indication, they’re pretty much the ‘Moroccan pouf’ of glam decor.
Okay, admittedly we succumbed to the Moroccan pouf trend too.
Unfortunately, the price points of faux fur fuzzy stools (or Mongolian wool stools) are fairly high. For instance, this gorgeous CB2 sheepskin stool is $349.00 USD or $499.99 CAD. Yikes.
Posters are an easy and budget-friendly way to add art to your child’s bedroom. Framing posters with simple black, white or gold frames can create a more polished look – but since I love the look of art on canvas, and already had most of the supplies on hand, I chose this option. I also liked the idea of creating canvas art for my kids while keeping it budget-friendly so that when their tastes change, as they often do, I haven’t spent too much. Personally, I don’t like the look of posters tacked to the wall but if you do, no judgement. Whatever works.

It can be difficult to create storage in a small space without compromising on style. When we downsized to our current home, I definitely needed extra storage in my new, smaller bedroom. But finding options that were both affordable and stylish proved to be challenging.
