Eau La La

01 December 2013


I wanted to share with you a creative little design idea that I had recently, that doesn't cost a fortune. Having a passion for interior design, I love decorating my room but often find that homewares and such are just too expensive for me *sob sob*,  so I try and source bits and bobs from elsewhere. Recently, I came across a listing for about five empty perfume bottles on eBay, and I thought that they would be a  perfect addition to my room. The glass bottles look so dainty and gorgeous, and it means that I can have the bottles even when I am not a particular fan of the scent (I'm looking a you Daisy!). The best part, they worked out at under £2 each, quite a find if I do say so myself, and an idea that will possibly benefit you too!

What do you think of this idea, how do you find things to decorate your room?

  32. I have some empty perfume bottles on my window sill as decoration, it's a great way to recycle them so they don't go to waiste and most are far too pretty to throw away!
