If you hadn’t realised from my blog I am a massive fan of all things shabby chic and floral. I also like to make things and when I have the time, making new from old.
My other half and I recently bought our first home after renting for far too long. The house does need quite a bit of work, and as we get married VERY soon, we havent had the time or the money to do too much.
I have managed to make our bedroom pretty and girly though, much to my hubby to be’s horror.
Here’s the story so far ….
The walls are painted in Dulux matt First Dawn.
I love this bed. It’s so pretty and girly, and I think it was a bargain. We only needed to buy the frame as our previous bed was an Ikea bed so we already had the mattress.
B & Q light – £39.98
This light is so bright. It looks old and worn and is exactly what I wanted. It fits in perfectly.
The start of my photo wall. I bought the frames from various charity shops – they’re all wooden. It probably cost me around £4 for all 6. I then painted them with Annie Sloan (watch out for another review on this lovely stuff coming soon) paint in Old White and Louis Blue and wax and sanded them for a shabby chic vintage effect. I just need some prints to fill them with.
My wardrobe is solid pine and was purchased on Ebay for the fantastic price of £25. Again I painted it in Annie Sloan Old White and waxed and sanded them.
I picked this little beauty up from Tu at Sainsburys for £4. I love it. It sits nicely on the wardrobe knob, and annoys my other half every time he opens the door. I love it though. It looks so cute and pretty. Its made from metal and the flowers are so intricate.
The gorgeous shabby edges on the wardrobe that I did.
Another Ikea purchase. I’ve actually had this around 6 years. I’m not sure whether they still stock it but it’s gorgeous.
It’s really heavy and I have it stood against the wall. I wish we had more space because I think a mannequin in white metal would look great stood next to it.
Floral bedside lamps from Asda – £12
The white wooden hearts were picked up from The Range whilst I was looking for wedding related goodies. I have one set hung on each side of the bed, now although they look pretty the make so much noise when you turn over during the night.
Another little corner containing my wicker bin picked up at The Range for £2.99.
This is our room so far. I’m not finished but it’s well on its way!
