So then guy you know I told you about me redesigning my old chest of draws I brought .. We’ll I have to say I have the creative bug now I haven’t stopped yesterday I made curtains for the first time they are so pretty (I’m completely made up with myself) I’ve got them hung up in my little bedroom they look beautiful they are falling so nice. But most importantly they have finished my room of so much, they catch your eye as soon as you enter the room and have made it feel so warm and welcoming .

I’ve just created myself an Instagram that is linked to my blog so get on over there everyone and check it out !
So last week I was watching a program and it gave me a idea about restoring old used furniture.. So I started shopping about and looked on eBay! There was a perfect cabinet, used and all scratched and ruined because it had just been abounded so I brought it. Therefore when it arrived it was in a little worse state then I expected, so I sanded it down using a hand held electric sander instead of just sand paper and left it to stand over night so all the left over dust would either fall off or get blown off, I then painted it all over in a pure white colour because I knew the colour of the wood would shine threw so it’s made the white look as if it is a off white and slightly used… Because it was all scratched and didn’t over the top I was hoping that once it was painted it would all blend together but it never really went so smoothly. Then I had a brainwave when I woke up in the morning i received a email saying a local department store was having a flash sail and there I had it .. A brilliant idea that was about to create and amazing piece of furniture.. Shopping around in the store I spotted the perfect wallpaper… Yes wallpaper covering the top and once I had finished it was absolutely beautiful the paint an paper complimented each other so well ! Also when I was at the store a brought new handles for the drawers, they set it off so well they made it look so classical !
I can not wait to do my next project… And here is a picture of the finished project
This beautiful fairy tale was made by an inspiration of mine the wonderful Laura Day. I admire everything that Laura does she is such a classical designer that takes antiques furniture into a modern space and makes them compliment each other so beautifully. Another thing that I love and completely understand is how much Laura stresses to use natural elements to. Rear clean environments up making sure it’s always comfortable. She limitless designs are always beautiful and functional.
She will always be a leading lady in the land of Interior Design which I admire!
Seasons are changing and so is the light, sometimes rooms can become to feel boring and drab when the sun is shining so brightly into your home… Never be afraid to add an accessory or a item of furniture to brighten your home up.
Square rooms can feel completely different by adding different shapes and sizes to create more definition and change up the solid pattern that you have in your room, its so easy to get into the routine of pushing everything up against walls and into corners when you have a set shaped room so mix it up and add such things as round coffee tables, different shape rugs.. the simplest things can be so breathing taking when it is created so right. Also like neutrals rooms can take on a whole new feeling by adding a bright bold colour into it or onto a existing piece of furniture. Summer time can bring a whole new creative side of people out that i just love, everybody seems to always go a little bit more daring with everything so why not bring that feeling of adventure into your home.
Textures and patterns help create that magical feeling you start longing for also do mirrors. Surrounding a mirror by a pattern make you or you guests feel as if your being pulled towards a whole new universe of diversity, never be a afraid to try new things as long as you love what you have done and are proud of it everybody will to love it.
Trust me you’ll become and inspiration and trend setter for beating the boring and bringing the brightness!
Much Love ❤
