If you've not seen the Netflix show, you should give it a try!  Any way I love these retro stencils for gin and whiskey, and I thought this little table would be perfect for one of them.  I found it in a mercatino usato and bought it mostly for the curved drawer at the...

I've seen so many gorgeous pink painted pieces that I had to have a go myself!  I bought this little console table as I liked the detailing on the drawer which I thought would hold some nice dark glazing or dark wax, and I love the cute castors which are expensive and...

Just a quick one today to introduce you to this now gorgeous mirror.  It was originally part of a large chest of drawers that I wanted to use as a dining buffet for our large balcony, so I removed the mirror and it took on an identity of it's own! 

I needed to do a...

This old TV unit was too good to pass by, not because it was particularly attractive, but it was in good condition, a nice size (not too big, not too small) and it was cheap! Sometimes a piece is cheap enough to make it worth picking up on that score alone; assuming it...

I had this piece of old wood propped up outside our front door for quite a while before I got around to giving it a spruce up, and this sort of style is fun to do as it's messy, shabby, and imperfect!  Now this piece of wood was already lovely and old, with splinters a...

After a big storm, nearly all my plastic terracotta coloured planters blew off our balcony creating a huge soil-y mess and shattered plastic everywhere.  Bearing in mind these planters had soil and plants (albeit some very dried out old plants) in them, it was a pretty...

I don't actually have a before picture of this table! This is what I get like sometimes - I buy something full of ideas of what I want to do with it and jump right in before I've remembered I'm supposed to document it all!  But then that's what I'm really about, the do...

I love decorating for Christmas - usually I'm not allowed to decorate until after my husband's birthday which is at the beginning of December (and yes he did just turn the big 4 0 which is not what this display of unreasonable grinchy-ness might suggest!), but this yea...

I didn't really have a place for this in my home (or think that carefully about what exactly I was going to do with it!) but I liked the handle and I thought what home doesn't need a bar cart :) (or tea trolley if a cart of booze isn't up your street!).

It really needed...

This is another one of those pieces that I picked up aaaaages ago but have only just got around to giving it a makeover.  I did it in preparation for redecorating my hallway (much to my husbands dismay but the floor really does need to go!) and wanted a piece that woul...
