Its been a month or so since I finished the major work needed in my craft room, although the main work is done, the rest is a long way off. Already though, I love to spend as much time as I can in there. As I mentioned, all the major work has been done – … [Read more…]

DIY: Autumn twig wreath.

I first tried this project back when I lived in Germany, using the array of bushes and trees we had in our garden. Its so simple and cheap, also makes you wonder why the ones in the shops are so expensive. Once we moved back to the UK I cherished it even more, knowing I … [Read more…]

A very DIY halloween.

  Its officially the week of halloween! We love this holiday in our house.

DIY: From wooden pallet to farmhouse shutters.

  A few weeks ago, I mentioned I had a little ‘Pallet project’. Heres the finished product. I am so, ridiculously in love with them. So much so that I’m already planning the next pair to be made for the kitchen. Anyone would be pushed to find something similar for less than £100 – if … [Read more…]

Crafty stencilled bathroom floor.

We’ve lived in our current home since November 2013. During this time the living room has been decorated three times, the kitchen & girls’ bedroom twice, and every other room once. Except the bathroom – its never been touched. Bare walls and an awful blue rubber flooring, hardly the relaxing retreat in which I want … [Read more…]
