A sneak peek of my bedroom


Since starting my blog, naturally my love for shabby chic has grown!! I managed to persuade my boyfriend to completely redo our bedroom and this is a sneak peek of what we (he) has done so far. My boyfriend used to be a joiner so he loves buying old furniture and doing it up. Both the bed and bedside table were bought for next to nothing off gumtree, they were both an awful pine colour but he sanded them down and painted them. We didn't want all the furniture to be white so he decided to buy some duck egg blue paint as well. The bed cover is so pretty and was from BHS in the sale, the owl cushion was also from BHS but was a Christmas present off Tim. I have recently developed a slight obsession for owls...god only knows!!!
We still have some work to do but I love it so far and cant wait to see it finished.

  4. This is so pretty, I really like the idea of resorting old furniture, it means that you can make it individual and personal. As for the duck egg, its a colour that I really love at the moment! xx
