It is also the room that I hide my one piece of seriously crap furniture. My chest of drawers is a cheap, Fantastic furniture type thing which I loathe but I simply don't have the money to buy what I desire, a solid timber tall boy. So alas, I keep the rubbish piece of furniture simply out of necessity and hope that one day it will get replaced but something much nicer.

This set of drawers is one of my most favourite Hobart "tip shop" purchases to date. It didn't look this good when we found it, the wood veneer was peeling quite badly but I sanded it back and put a new coat of polyurethane on it and hey presto, it's a really cool little piece of furniture. I stash all our photos and travel memorabilia in it.
The built in cupboards were a second hand find and a fraction of the cost of buying new wardrobes from the same specialist store.
Like my other rooms, there are some big ticket items in here (like the bed which is hand made) but most of it is op shop, second hand and tip shop buys. It doesn't cost a fortune to decorate in my opinion, it's just about placement in the room and only displaying the essential items. I put a lot of my nick nacks away into storage and then when I'm sick of the current lot on display, I rotate it with the stuff I have had tucked away.
