A Little Bit of Home Improvement

Lately I'm more into buying stuff for the house than for myself.  Dedma na muna ang Zara at Mango sale!  I seem to be more attracted to the home section than the women's section.  But fret not, I am still the same person that you've always known.  I will be back to clothes/shoe/make-up shopping soon.  Maybe starting tomorrow?  Haha!

Anyway, I was finally able to hang our photos on the wall, just like in our old apartment.
a
a
Trying to be methodical by using scratch paper, but in the end I just crossed my fingers and hoped that they are not tabinge.
a
a
Guess it turned out ok.  Who knows, a few months from now I might just wake up and have the urge to rearrange them.  This will do for now.
a
a
I have issues with kalat -- like with our remote controls.  I wish we can have just one, but we need all three: one for the tv, the popcorn player and the sound system.  I also hate having to look for something when you need to use it.  I want all three remote controls within easy reach when watching (tamad kasi!).  So I placed all of them in a tray to make them look a bit "organized".
a
a
Before: nakapatong lang sa placemat.  Ang kawawa tignan!
a
a
After: on a tray that I bought from Chatuchak.  Mas ok na tignan.
a
a
I've always wanted to do something about our growing collection of perfumes -- actually, they're mostly Richard's.  I tried to get one of those trays from Muji, pero ayaw ni boss.  Magmumukha daw cheap yung dresser namin.  Good thing they fit in this black tray that we got from Central Chidlom.
a
a
Buti na lang kasya.  Husband approved pa!
a
a
While shopping at Central Chidlom, Richard and I spotted this:
a
a
Resin horse.
a
a
Richard got this for me to add to my growing collection -- ok, it's not really a collection just yet because so far I only have two.  Heehee!  Why horse?  Because I was born in the year of the horse.  Aly was asking how come we don't buy a pig (Richard's sign) or a sheep (Aly's).  Sabi ko, when they find a nice, decorative pig or sheep that's not pa-cutesy or cartoon-y, sige we'll buy.  Good luck na lang!
a
a
All that's left for me to work on is this area:
a
a
My "vanity" space.  Notice my train case?  This is where I do my make-up because this has the best natural light at home.  Or so I think.  
a
a
Soon, my train case will have to make room for an accent chair, a ceramic stool or perhaps a wooden chest.  Any of the three, as long as I can put big, picture books on them.  I'm not in a hurry, though because I know it's going to take a while to find the perfect piece at the perfect price.  Hope the hubby is game for some furniture hunting.  Or better yet, I hope he's game for furniture funding!  Haha!
