loccitane-garazna-razprodaja-after-7Hi ladies!
Today I have a not particularly beauty related post. However, it’s not beautiful only what we can put on ourselves, right? You may (or not) know I attended the L’Occitane garage sale this week and had a chance to take three pieces of their decorating products with me. Our lovely L’Occitane team is well know of their challenges, so they didn’t miss the opportunity to give us another one! 🙂 This time, we are not testing any beauty products, but we were given a task to create some before and after pictures of our homes without/with those pieces we grabed. Now, let’s have a look at my work, but I will fistly tell you something about the sale itself! Keep reading…

Punce pozdravljene!
Danes z vami delim lepotno objavo, ki sicer ni neposredno povezana z lepotnimi izdelki. Verjetno se boste strinjale z menoj, da ni lepo samo tisto, kar lahko damo nase. In kot veste (ali pa mogoče še ne) sem se ta teden udeležila L’Occitanove garažne razprodaje, odkoder sem imela priložnost s seboj odnesti tri izdelke, ki so me tako zelo očarali. Naša L’Occitane ekipa je znana po njihovih izzivih, zato tudi tokrat niso izpustili priložnost, da jih znova razveselimo s svojimi kreativnimi objavami. Tokrat ne testiram lepotnih izdelkov, temveč prikazujem slike kotičkov svojega stanovanja pred in po umestitvi novih dekorativnih izdelkov. Poglejmo si, kaj sem ustvarila, še prej pa vam bom povedala nekaj več o razprodaji sami…

Let me first say, that the sale is not about beauty products! Do not expect to see there any hand creams, shower gels, skin care products etc. No! The sale is about their furniture, decoration products and equipment they were using in their stores for the past 15 years. You can find some pieces that are not available in stores, and therefore they have a special value. Everything from baskets, vases, artificial flowers (cherry blossoms, peonies, roses…), different stands… everything you saw in their store, but was not for sale! Now is the time to grab your own pieces. The sale itself starts on October 21st, 2016 at 12:00, and ends on October 29th, 2016 at 7:00PM. The warehouse, located on Šmartinska cesta, will be open everyday from 12:00 to 7:00PM. When I was there, there were still no prices, but they won’t be high, since the aim of the sale is actually to get rid of those things. If you have any free time, make sure to stop by, because I have seen some awesome things, and I will be coming back for sure.

Now, let’s continue to my project. Firstly I will show you two pieces I was able to take with me. On picture below you can see a nice black retro display and in the right bottom corner a bouquet of peonies. Two things I immediately know I need in my life. Why? Because the display, as shown below, is perfect for displaying my favourite nail polishes, and peonies, because I never have them when I need them. I decided to put some nail polishes on the display but I have realized that it needs some improvement, because there is too much space between the wires (I don’t have a better word it right now!). I went to our local store Bauhaus and grabed a selfadhesive black foil to see what I can do…

Najprej naj razložim, da ne gre za razprodajo lepotnih izdelkov! Torej ne pričakujte kremic, gelov za prhanje in izdelkov za nego kože, ker jih ne bo! Gre za L’Occitanovo garažno razprodajo izložbene dekoracije, pohištva in opreme, ki se je v 15. letih delovanja L’Occitana v Slovenije kopičila v njihovem skladišču. Vse, kar je nekoč krasilo L’Occitane trgovine bo tokrat naprodaj. In ker L’Occitanove trgovine veljajo za tiste najlepše in najbolj urejene v Sloveniji, vam zagotovo ne bo žal če boste prišli kaj mimo. V skladišču na Šmartinski cesti v Ljubljani vas čakajo košarice, vaze, umetne cvetlice (češnjevi cvetovi, potonike, vrtnice…), sadje, različna stojala…. skratka, vse kar ste si mogoče nekoč želeli kupiti v njihovi trgovini, pa je bilo le del njihove izložbene dekoracije. Razprodaja se odpre 21. oktobra in traja do 29. oktobra od 12:00 do 19:00. Dogodek ima seveda tudi dobrodelni pridih, saj bodo vsa sredstva pridobljena od prodaje izdelkov en dan prej, torej 20.oktobra ob 17:00, namenjena centru slepih športnikov “Vidim cilj”. Cene bodo simbolične, saj je namen razprodaje znebiti se izdelkov, ki bi verjetno prej ali slej pristali na uničenju. Ne zamudite je! 

Nadaljujmo sedaj z mojim projektom. Najprej vam bom pokazala dva kosa, ki sem ju prinesla domov. Na spodnji fotografiji lahko vidite čudovito črno retro stojalo in v desnem spodnjem kotu zamegljen šopek potonik. V momentu sem vedela, da to rabim, kot bi rekel moj sinček. Zakaj? Ker sem si vedno želela stojalo za lake za nohte, in to je prišlo kot naročeno. Potonike pa zato, ker jih nikoli ni možno dobiti, takrat ko jih potrebujem. Seveda sem takoj poskusila napolniti stojalo z laki in naletela na težavo. Namreč prostor med žicami je prevelik in laki ne stojijo lepo gor. Zato sem odšla v Bauhaus, kupila črno samolepilno folijo, in stojalo je dobilo novo podobo…

Before/Prej

Firstly I have measured the size of each shelf of the display. I took a piece of drawing paper and cut out some stripes. I applied the foil over the paper and pressed well, just to make sure there are no air bubbles. I have placed the stripes on the shelfs and secured them with a tape from the bottom! It took me about an hour and a half to finish it, but it was totally worth it! I have filled up the display with some of my favourite polishes and decorated the corner with peonies. Now I have a brand new beauty corner in my studio! Check it below.

Najprej sem seveda izmerila širino in dolžino posamezne police stojala. Vzela sem risalni papir in izrezala trakove, ter odrezala robove pod ustreznim kotom. Nato sem čez papir položila folijo in dobro pritisnila, da izginejo vsi mehurčki. Tako dobljene trakove sem položila na poličke in jih iz spodnje strani pritrdila z lepilnim trakom. Celoten proces je trajal približno uro in pol, ampak menim, da se je splačalo. Stojalo sem hitro napolnila z najljubšimi laki za nohte in ga okrasila s potonikami. Sedaj imam popolnoma nov lepotilni kotiček v svojem studiu in sem super zadovoljna!

The third piece dof decoration is a wooden stand. Approximately 8cm high, a darker brown color fits perfectly on my working table. If I am honest, I usually have a mess on my table, because it’s just suitable for leaving things there… But this autumn I created a lovely arrangment with a hedgehog – because my son loves hedgehogs. 🙂 There is always a planner on my table as well, together with some papers to take notes. It looked like this before…

Tretji element, ki sem ga prinesla domov je leseno stojalo. Približno 8cm visoko, temnejše rjave barve, ravno pravšnje za mojo delovno mizo. Če sem čisto iskrena, na njej je ponavadi kar konkreten cirkus, je zelo priročna za odlaganje različnih stvari… To jesen sem pa ustvarila dekorativni aranžma z ježkom – ker moj sin obožuje ježke – in ga postavila v kot mize. Na mizi imam vedno tudi rokovnik in pa nekaj papirjev za zapiske. Nekako tako je izgledalo prej…

The new stand brought a bit of dimension to my table, and I managed to put my planner and my papers below the stand, so it looks really good. What you can also see, are the immortelle flowers and some shea nuts, which gave a bit of brightness to the arrangment itself. I am so happy with it, and I hope you like the idea, too!

Novo stojalo je vneslo nekaj dimenzije na mojo mizo. Rokovnik in papirje sem pospravila spodaj, tako da lepo izgleda. Sedaj je res v prvem planu aranžma, ki je tako lepo izpostavljen na stojalu. Če bolje pogledate sam aranžma, lahko opazite nekaj suhocvetnic in karitejevih oreščkov, ki dodajo nekaj barvne živahnosti aranžmaju. Zelo sem vesela kako je na koncu uspelo vse skupaj, in upam, da je tudi vam všeč.

Finally, we came to the end of this post. I really enjoyed redecorating my home, and I am so damn sure I will be at the L’Occitane garage sale on Thursday as well. I hope to see you there! :*

Prišli smo do konca danšnje objave. Jaz sem v prenovi zelo uživala in bom zato v prvih vrstah tudi v četrtek na dobrodelni otvoritvni L’Occitanove garažne razprodaje. Upam, da se vidimo! :*

      No, mogoče ne ravno work of art, mi je pa všeč končni rezultat. Čakaj da vidiš končni rezultat prenavljanja moje mize 🙂
