Bargain / Ikea / Living Room / Painting / Picture Post / Stool

I did a little make over on a stool this weekend. I really enjoyed it and feel like I am a real blogger now because I can offer a before and after! Hooray for me. Anyway, I found this stool at my local Salvation Army charity shop. It had some dubious stains which the man in the shop assured me I could just scrub out. Y’alright love.

Bathroom / DIY / Painting

We F-I-N-A-L-L-Y managed to get started on some pretty basic DIY this weekend! It only took a month of owning a house to be able to bring out a paint brush. Le sigh. We’ve been so effing busy though that everything’s been put on the backburner until now.
