Sliding Wardrobe Door Update

Sliding Wardrobe Door Update

If you're a regular reader of this blog, you probably remember this simple robe door makeover from about a year ago.... When I re-decorated my master bedroom, I simply painted the ugly beige metal surround with enamel spray paint to create a more cohesive (i.e. less...

When I woke this morning I noticed a soft golden glow creeping in from beyond my bedroom curtains and when I peered out the window saw the tree limbs dancing in the type of gentle breeze which makes you want to hang fresh white sheets on the clothes line. It was one...

Our hive has three bedrooms. The master, along with two other teeny ones currently awaiting revamps - one of which is more of a glorified cupboard (okay, so I'm exaggerating slightly though you get my drift, they are SMALL). So anyway, the slightly less small of the...

Make Your Own Throw Blanket

Make Your Own Throw Blanket

I gave up my search for a beautiful natural linen throw blanket a while back now. It wasn't because I couldn't find one for a reasonable price mind you, it was cause I couldn't find one at ALL (though if I had I'm sure it would have cost a pretty penny anyways). From...
