I haven’t done a room tour for a while and as I was having a bit of a tidying frenzy at the weekend I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to take some photos! I spent hours cleaning out my wardrobes (even under my bed!) and dusting all the little trinkets on my shelves and window sill.

Back in March I took part in a blogger competition (see my entry here) to renovate a piece of furniture, and I was lucky enough to win first prize! I was so so excited as the prize was a £300 NotOnTheHighStreet voucher and I love their website. I picked out all of my goodies right away and eagerly awaited their arrivals.

I was recently invited to take part in a creative blogger challenge with housing and regeneration specialists Keepmoat to create an affordable DIY home project. With a budget of £50 to come up with something inspiring and imaginative, I started thinking about what I could create right away. I began thinking of making a kitty cabin for Merlin to hide in, as he loves sleeping in boxes, but then I stumbled across a wooden cabinet in a charity shop.  The finished look  I…
