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. I also have to admit that even though […]

Designer Storage

Bathroom / Picture Post / Things We Need

I mentioned a while back that I’d ordered a  Componobili replica from bluesuntree.co.uk for some bathroom storage. Well it arrived last week and I love it! It fits the awkward space between the sink and the bath perfectly and stores everything we need! The original owners of the house had renovated the bathroom about a year before we bought it so not much really needs doing urgently aside from the massive crack in the tiles on the floor. It’s like […]

Impatience

Bargain / Dining Room / Picture Post / Things We Need

Just bought four of these babies in Sky Blue for the dining room table. What was the rubbish I was talking about ‘waiting and making sure they were what we want’? Christ I’m impatient. We were always going to come back to them though, I know it (ahem). £207 for four chairs including delivery. Not exactly cheap but I’ve always loved the original Eames chair so it’s a bit of love struck madness. In other news my […]

An Unintentional Shrine

Art Work / Lighting / Picture Post / Things We Need

Our living room fireplace is looking a bit like a rubbish attempt at a shrine to Bob Dylan at the moment. He’s not dead, FYI. It’s an attempt to hide the fire insert that I’m not really a fan of. I need to get a bigger/wider/darker frame and put something that isn’t human in it. I also thought about a fire grill instead but I can’t find anything big enough or opaque enough to hide […]

So we went ahead and bought a dining table last week and it arrived yesterday. We ended up going with No Name table from John Lewis (as mentioned in this post) because he was on sale down from £299 to £199 with free delivery. (He’s no longer available so I can’t link to the site which is annoying and ruining my link flow, but here’s what he looked like). So anyway, he arrived and it […]

Hanging

Art Work / Picture Post

To cheer myself up a bit after yesterday’s Damp Gate, I decided it was time to get some more art up on the walls. Putting pictures up was always the first thing I did when moving into rented places. I love how homely it makes a place feel and I’ve been desperately missing it since we’ve moved in. I was given two Stanley Chow prints for my birthday and Christmas and have been saving them […]

It’s Curtains

Curtains / Dining Room / Ikea / Living Room / Picture Post

The reason we discovered the effing damp in our dining room last night, was because I was about to go and put up our new curtains when I noticed it. Due to the mini meltdown that was had following the damp discovery I’ve still yet to take ANY pictures of the dining room, with curtains, without curtains, with paint, without paint…you see where I’m going here. I do, on the other hand, have pictures of […]
