    27th July 2015

    It’s been another busy week of decorating, and I’m starting to get good at this! This time I targeted the toilet, as I was sick of the aged tiles and wanted them to match the rest of my camply-decorated toilet. I love my teal and white walls with random gold, tacky material and sparkly light…

    This Christmas was the fourth year I’ve lived in my flat, and the fourth year I’ve told myself I will not go another year with my disgusting, aged bathroom. And this time I managed to sort it in the first few days of the new year! The bathroom is completely tiled, and me not having…

    When I got home one evening this week I noticed someone had left an under the sink storage unit next to the communal bin, so I saw a prime opportunity to do some more upcycling! It was a light wood colour, but also had a green tinge, so it was definitely in need of a…

    The saying “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” has yet again been proved by yours truly. I visited my mother the other day and as I rolled up the drive I noticed her neighbour had left out an old, wooden shoe rack with their rubbish.
