Practical Please!

 I'm always on the lookout for new ideas on how to make practical yet cute additions to my room and bathroom, so I'm sharing with you a few ways I devised to keep myself organised.

Hair Clip Displayer

Tired of sifting through your basket of headbows and clips? Add a loop of ribbon to a strip of fabric, hem the edges, and you have the perfect clip displayer! I eventually glued rectangles of clear, rigid plastic at the back because the weight of the clips deformed the fabric and it wouldn't hang straight. (No pictures because the glue made a very ugly mess indeed.) I also folded to fabric at one end to form a loop. I stuff my hair ribbons in there, and whatever can't be clipped to avoid having it all tangle up in a basket.

Bedside Table

This is my bedside table, improvised with a bit of wood, a bracket, a cute bias ribbon and ponpons for decoration! It ended up hostingmy collection of miniature plushies and can barely fit a book and my water bottle in the end though... Oh, and the fabulous artwork on the ceiling (no not the blue paint, please ignore my failed attempt at a fresco...), I mean the poster, is by amazing friend and artist Pany Vanh. Check his work out on DeviantArt! What he does is gorgeous ~

I'm planning to add more of these simple practical ideas to my room, so stay tuned!
