The New Furniture for the FREE Dining Room!

I’ve found stuff! This pendant light on eBay for $72… I knew I wanted something modern and gold and somewhat impactful and this seemed to fit the bill. Let’s hope it also fits the space! On Gumtree I came across a set of four Windsor style chairs for $40 (listing states $50 however the price was...…READ MORE

A Plan for the Free Dining Room

The furniture is sold! The dining setting fetched $180 and the light went for $20. This gives me a grand total of $200 (I know, don’t be too impressed by my amazing math) to overhaul the space. What a nice round figure. In all honestly, I was hoping for a tad more though this will...…READ MORE

We received several offers (the first...…READ MORE

To be honest, the idea of looking back through my archives was a little daunting. I was...…READ MORE

Charlotte’s Bedroom Makeover | Product Sources

Hi there. Remember me? Sorry I kinda disappeared for a little while there. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – at times I can be a bad, bad blogger. I’d love to have a really great excuse, though in reality I can only blame lethargy…and laundry…and life. Anyhoo, I’m back, and as...…READ MORE
