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 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...

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...

I don't usually buy big pieces of furniture at the mercato usato, simply because I can't get it home with my son in the back of the car and he's usually always my shopping companion!  This one however I got a delivery guy to bring home for me, for an extortionate cost...

I came across this old footstool at my local Mercato Usato - it was dirty and faded and I didn't have a footstool in my life, so this was perfect!  The base was plain, but sturdy, and the seat springs were in good condition, so after checking that the upholstery was go...

In this video I'll explain how I've attached a wooden applique to a footstool during a makeover.  The sides were plain and boring, so I decided to add some embellishment!
