Recently, I came across Cable & Cotton‘s fabulous lighting products. The cotton light ball looks so beautiful and adds a splash of colour to any room.
We recently undertook two challenges and renovated our old nursery room and downstairs toilet which we are really happy with. However now every other part of our house looks like it could do with a revamp too. In particular, we need to update our Roman and Venetian blinds. These blinds were from Hillarys and they have lasted really well, but we had them installed when all our walls were magnolia from when we first moved in. Since then, we have renovated a number of our rooms and in truth, some of the blinds don’t match the decor of the rooms now.
Last month, I blogged about me transforming our nursery room to a study room. Here is a link to the post in case you missed it previously.
Now B&Q have compiled a transform video of the four Mumsnetters’ video reviews. I feature at the start of the video which you can see here:
Instead of spending your time painting a wild forest theme on your wall, why not invest in wall stickers? I love the idea of wall stickers. They are easy to use and are reusable. We were already fans of wall stickers. We had a wall sticker train set on Ms C’s wall and the children’s names on their doors.
Recently, I met +Annie Spratt at the Tots100 Blog Summit and found her amazing blog. I am an amateur gardener but I am very keen to learn and keep my garden in good shape. I am linking this post up with How does your garden grow? over at Mammasaurus.
A few weeks ago, I took up the blogger’s challenge to do up my cloakroom. Since then, it got me thinking for my next project. It will be definitely be my en-suite. It is boring and dated. There are no built in cupboards nor wall tiles. I would love to add wall tiles to make a feature wall but I have no idea how to get the perfect match. Mr C and I have different views on choosing wall tiles to door styles!
To help us to achieve our dream en-suite, I am using this new bathroom design tool called Visualise which has just been launched by Utopia Bathroom.
Utopia’s Visualise is an online interior design tool, available on the company’s website, which helps bring to life thousands of bathroom furniture and colour combinations available to choose from Utopia’s luxurious range. With an extensive variety of furniture, worktops, tiles, door styles and accessories, all available in a range of colour ways, the tool makes it easier than ever before to visualise exactly what your new bathroom, en suite or cloakroom will look like, before making that financial investment.
Recently, Mumsnet was looking for 20 MNers to revamp an unloved room in their home. I was one of the lucky ones to have been chosen by B&Q. I was sent a B&Q gift card to spend on a makeover for the unloved room.
The unloved room used to be the nursery room for our children when they were babies. They have long since moved into their own rooms and it has gradually been a dumping ground for toys and books. I wanted to use this fantastic opportunity to turn it into a study room for my children who is in primary school.
I love to keep a tidy home and am happy to tackle DIY projects. For example, after a long and harsh winter, I just recently cleaned my decking in the back garden and gave it a nice new coat of oil to protect itfor another year or two.
MoneySupermarket recently launched the ‘Room for Improvement competition where they challenged 200 bloggers to get creative and show how they can improve a room in their home for just £50. I really fancied the opportunity to freshen up the downstairs toilet because of all the dirty finger prints everywhere and marker pen drawings on the wall. This is how it used to look:
