We love upcycling!.......... an old ercol coffee table.

For those of you that follow us, you will know that we love all things up cycled! and if its not up cycling old fabric to create our personalised fabric party bags its furniture!

We recently found an old Ercol coffee table, worn and tired with coffee cup stains. A beautiful design, however it needed a little t.l.c.

So we decided to do this......

Ta dah! what do you think? We chose a Habitat paint in kingfisher which is suitable for walls, metal and wood, and a dulux primer.

We now have the "itch", chairs next we think!!!

Have a fab week.

The box room transformation.....

On a recent visit home, my ma asked me to sort out the box room, it has been my brother's room, then my room, spare room and the junk room.

We were thinking, the box room mainly is use for the grand kids, and when the big kids come back to the nest, so, it needs to be fun for the little ones and big ones too!

We started to look out for inspiration...

Mood board of things we like.   

Floor plan.   

After a bit of shopping, a big trip to Ikea and a weekend of DIY, the box room is transformed.
