Does it Measure up?

Often I need to measure out various spots on a property to be able to design it, I'm sure many of you do the same with rooms.

I try to keep this standard measuring tape from Home Depot in my car for my jobs. I never worry if it gets muddy, messy or otherwise beat up.

However, when I'm shopping for furniture I hate carrying the BULKY tape around with me.

These next few beauties could be perfect in my bag for the days I have happened to leave my big tape on the job-hey, it happens! Or if I was just in the mood for something a little more girly!

I loved this gorgeous leather tape from Rowallan, a Scottish company who has very clean lined stylish accessories to keep your life in order.

Even these are perfect for those who are fans of blingy things...

Do you have a specific measuring tape you use or will anything do? Or do you just eyeball it?

Happy Monday!

  1. I was just talking to my parents today about tape measures! Yes, it's like the bulky must-have that I can't live with in my purse, but can't live these dashing alternatives!
