Bathroom Update

My Bathroom is so tiny I have to take a few pics to capture it!
I found this cabinet in a skip...
I painted it and used left over vinyl floor tiles for the door inserts.
Still to add handles, and a nice anthropologie hand towel (in ma dreams)
 
 
The antique chair a friend gave me a few years back and I found this gorgeous turquoise tweed in the charity shop.
 
 
I decoupaged the drawer fronts a few years ago now!
 


I painted this sugar skull for my teenage son then stole it back and put it in a frame I found in the charity shop. hehe...
 

 

Vintage Wood Advertisement

I was out in Galashiels doing the local charity shops,
 when my friend spotted this little guy..
And too be quite honest Im actually a tad scared of his eyes!
don't ask me why...
 
 
My son who is an avid collector of Gas masks came up with a solution...
To be honest I prefer him like this..hehehe
 
 

Building a fake wall

So it all started with the Provence fire..
Sitting in the corner of my hallway..
 
 
I decided on a corner fireplace.. well I had no choice actually!
I found the corner fireplace awkward to display.
 
 
 
So I decided on a fake wall...
B&Q here I come..
It cost £28.00 in total...
4 panels of thin hardboard,  2 bags of panel pins and 2 tubs of no nails..
 
 
I left the shelf up behind the wall...how lazy is that?
Maybe a cup of coffee too!
 
 
And all finished...
But im sure the display will change a few times as the wall is new.
It takes me a while to get the feel of things.
I will panel the top of the wall..but not today :)

Re-Decorating The Kitchen

Well it has been 3 years since I last done it !
OOoh all nice n fresh.
 
Chairs painted in white and recovered in a beautiful vintage sanderson fabric.
 

I found this little cabinet in the skip it used to be an old BBC radio cabinet.
A few coats of dove grey paint and some Decoupage on the doors.
 

 
I revamped the cupboard doors with some grey and white paint and some new knobs.
I also had to make a new drawer because I broke the old one trying to hammer in the drawer knob!
Use the drill its much easier.
I stained the pine drawer with some tea and coffee and the oiled it.
 


I made the table top with gingham fabric.
I glued the fabric to the table,
let it dry,
thenvarnished as many times as I could possibly be bothered!
 

 
 
 I bought this old plate stand at a car booty.
Painted it and added some chains to hang as a ceiling pot rack.
 

 
More Knobs!

 
 
I call this the Jester Bunting.
I ran this up in a few hours for the kitchen window and I love it!
