A. Pop around to IKEA if you’re near Dublin and pick up a Galant raised desktop shelf that delivers another 70X30cm surface. €30. Take another €7 and invest in a steel Grundal rail with hooked cutlery stands to poke full of pens, rulers and other detritus. Run rails under your present shelving to double their capacity.
A.What about a fantastic lacy mannequin wall sticker from Wall Stickers.ie. from €24 for a 30X100cm? You could also explore their many Coco Chanel-based quotes and silhouettes for an adjoining wall. A small chandelier, that won’t interfere with her working room might also please. Try Littlewoods Ireland for non-electric pendants.
