Bedspread Love

I posted yesterday about the simple shelf I was making from the sides of a broken chest of drawers.
Well here it is with my bedspreads on ity...
I love my bedroom....I love sleeping in here...I love sleeping though!!! lol


Bedspread storage idea.

Sometimes its just the simple things..not the most ornate or elaborate..just making a simple shelf from something that would be going to the skip.
My son got a new chest of drawers for his room so I took apart his old one which was really falling apart and used the sides to make a deep, high up shelf for my bedspreads.
I put it together in an less than an hour, the painting took a few days a wee stolen hour here and there when I got the time.
Ive still to dress it...its so simple and useful I think it will look nice once it has the bedspreads on it.




Sewing Nook

I was a machinist in a factory as soon as I left school so having a sewing machine has always been a part of my home decor.
My wee sewing nooks have grown over the years.
The ever changing sewing nook...
Im sure it will all change again.. :)



Sweet Peas and Wild Flowers.

More picture from a long time ago...
Charity shop picture frames joined together to make a wall hanging.
Metal flour tins found in the skip used as my vases.
Re-vamped singer sewing case.
Lots more ...lol...


Random crafts.

I was online searching for some of my older products when I came across some images I hadnt seen in ages.
My house doesnt have any of these things in it anymore...
Red fridge and kitchen floor are still here...
I miss all of the interior crafts I used to do...its not until now I realise how creative I was in my house.
All my creativenessesss goes into my shop now :)
Its a bit of a mismatch...
Theres a wee bit of decoupage, fabric flowers, painted furniture, handmade boxes, suitcase shelf and D.IY breakfast bar crafts in there...

Upcycled paraffin heater

I thought I would take a photo of my paraffin heater upcycle.
I use it as a solar lamp plant stand now :)
Ive tried to take a night time picture to get the full effect of the lamp but it just wasnt happening.





Pattern Storage.

Im needing a little inspiration for the studio.
I have my patterns hanging on a modern valet stand at the moment.
I wouldnt mind some new fresh ideas on how to store these.
Maybe something coming down from the ceiling to hang them on..


Painting your door.

I had some time off yesterday so decided to put it to good use and paint the ever flaking, cracking door...:(
So I went to get my paint out the shed and nearly everything was off.
Must have been the extreme cold and then the extreme heat we are having.
I found a tin of Ronseal fence paint in what looked like really good health lol..
I re-painted the door, the window ledges, the front doorstep and some of the surrounding bricks :)
Not bad for half a tin of paint.
Ive just ordered some fairy lights to put in the paraffin heater for a wee night light. :)

Over the rainbow..

Some of my rainbow coloured makes over the last few months..


New shop in town

So we have a fab new shop in town and its called room 7A.. More important its a second hand shop what more could I ask for...
The owner has great taste and the little shop is filled to the brim with lots and lots of simply divine things.
I was in for a visit the other day and picked up this gorgeous Kingsize Bedspread.
I dont actually need one..
What I do need though is storage to hold my ever growing collection of bedspreads...
I need to build a high up deep shelf in the alcove in the bedroom..
