Home sweet home



This is a super quick post today but I wanted to share with you the new things I have bought for the house. On Sunday I was sat in the living room and was frustated by the decor as none of it really matched. The majority of the room was brown and cream but then we had lots of black and silver ornaments (from Tims old bachelor pad) that just really didnt go. I decided it was time to buy some new things so off we popped to ikea on Monday night. I decided to inject a bit of colour into the mix and went with green.
The table that they are on was an absolute bargain, it was £40.00 from ebay and came with 6 chairs. It is absolutely beautiful and it just goes to show you dont have to spend a lot of money to get nice things for the house.

Lantern- Ikea £3
Large frame- Sainsburys £4
White pot- Ikea £2
Fairy lights inside pot- Ikea £4
Small white frame- Ikea £4
Pot with flower- Sainsburys £4
Round candle holders- Poundstretcher £4
Green candles x 36- Ikea £1.95
