The Deal with Teal

Following on from my previous post and the reinvention of the dining area I thought id show you all the update on my upcycled dining room table, I wanted to introduce lots of different colours into this room, its the area where all the kiddies congregate (I think mainly because its right next to the kitchen.. so easily accessible to the cookie jar!)but for this reason I want it to be a little more fun and less grown up than than the main living room. Teal is cheerful yet calming and with the white walls as a background it really stands out, its also a far more practical colour than the white I had originally painted the legs, spills and splatters will obviously still be cleaned off, but at least the colour will temporarily disguise the madness that is dinner time.

Upcycled Danish Retro Drawers

Good morning all, a little update on what ive been upto this week, Ive been upcycling my little heart out! We, or should I say ‘I’ have become a little bored of our dining/living room area so ive decided to freshen it up and change pretty much everything about it. Ive always loved retro furniture, particularly Danish designed pieces, I managed to pick up some preloved mid century drawers for the knock out price of £30! The shape and style was exactly what I was after and after some searching I found this lovely set

Living Room Makeover

So ive been busy! My husband finally cracked and let me into ‘his room’ and to top it off he let me make all the decisions, its been fun! This room used to have a big bulky brown leather sofa in it which i disliked immensely, however my hubby said it was comfy so for a while it became untouchable.
