My 'sweet retro' study

I just redecorated our study!

My original plan was actually having a study room with a bit of retro style, so I spent months to look for the old retro furnitures in the online shop (

And I found this lovely desk (below) for just 15 euros. :-)

It needed some spruce-up so I sandpapered it and then painted it white. I am quite happy with the result.

The picture above is how my study looked before (really dull looking) and see how it looks now (below).

I actually thought about having a real retro style of wallpaper and found one with really bright orange and brown colors
in our local shop. But after looking thoughtfully at it, I changed my mind. That retro wallpaper would make our room darker. So I picked the other one instead, the white wallpaper with these cute pink flowers on.

Look at the chair. Don't you think it looks so lovely? :-)
I don't have to do anything at all with it because I already love it as it is, the white color with that cute orange cushion. It's so comfortable to sit on and also in a good condition (looks almost new). Actually I have two. I bid 14 euros for two of them and that was the highest bid. So the owner decided to sell them to me. Unbelievably cheap, right?

The room is not completely done yet and there are a lot more to do. But I just couldn't help myself to blog about it already here. :-)

Oh, there are a few more pieces of furniture that also need some changes, like this one (below). And of course, I still stick to the retro style. Looking forward to getting all done!!!
