You know those tall and elegant wood candle sticks that people always use for upcycling projects? I have always wanted one. Thing is, I don't know where to find them. I know there is a street in Manila where you can good antiques but I haven't had a chance to go yet. But I had an urgent need to redecorate (you will see why later) so I decided to improvise for now.
I bought some cheap cocktail glasses:
|The small ones are P30 ($0.70) and the bigger ones are P44 ($1)|
I have 2 beautiful decorative candles for less than P200 ($4)!

To start, I cleared all the junk out of the table. Except for the speakers. My husband told me they have to stay there *sigh*. I took a cream lacy table runner (again, from my grandmother), a big white vase that my mother-in-law bought years ago, and my candle holders... put it all together and...
And if you're wondering about the work area concept? Well... this is really silly but I later found out that I can't get a good broadband signal from this corner of our house so turning this into a work area didn't really work.
