Tah- Dah!

Hi guys! 
I can't believe how long it has been since i blogged! Sorry!
As usual, life took over, and the decorating began in earnest. We are almost done, i shall do another post on that though later in the week.

Firstly, the wallpaper arrived! Woohoo!

The first thing i did, of course, was add it to my beautiful dresser :)
So... Ta-dah!

It finishes off the dresser perfectly, and i am so very proud :)

The second Ta-dah comes in the form of my "new" dressing table, if you remember, i got a new dining table from a friend who was clearing his late mother -in-law's house, well the day after i got the table he rang and asked if would like a dressing table and a wardrobe, so i of course said yes , i am in the process of painting the wardrobe so will share a pic of that when i'm done 
I forgot to take a before picture, but it was a rather 50's/60's style teak style, and i was just desperate to brighten it up and add my own personality to it.

 I made some storage by upcycling powdered milk tins and wrapping them with wall paper, the biggest one on the left is a little bin for cotton buds, face wipes etc the Middle one is a honey jar, used for cotton buds and the one on the right is for make up brushes (only one in it at the mo as the others needed to be chucked, i've had them for years and they were getting tatty haha)

I also upcycled an old baking dish into a brush/misc tray for bits and pieces
Now a soft blue and gussied up with a lacy doily 

Oh and i spotted this for 99p in a charity shop! It's soo pretty! The cover on the atomiser needs fixing as it is fraying a little but otherwise it is perfect :)

I unearthed a cardboard box in the spare room which is now doing duty as a make up box

I also painted a chair and sacrificed a pillowcase to cover the seat :)

The THIRD Ta-Dah (I know, i'm on a roll!) i finally finished my blanket, it's not too big, but just perfect to snuggle under :)

So that's my news haha
I shall be off to catch up on everything i've missed :)


  1. Cute wallpaper! I love what you've done with it. Your blanket looks great. I need a new project and I'm thinking a blanket might be the way to go. I like the colours you've used. X

It will go on my list of "Blogs to Visit When I Am Bored With Working" (don't worry, that's my only list of blogs to visit - it's not a "Special List"!) Your kitchen Ta-da! is lovely. I do admire people who are handy and talented like this - I'm not at all!!
