Ma chambre dans le centre de mon coeur...

And so we begin the week of snooping around our bedrooms! There's nothing like waking up in the morning surrounded by personal possessions that shape who you are.  I've definitely got my favourites!!!  My bedroom is inspired by country chic.  Nothing beats the soft colours of duck egg blue contrasting with soft pinks.  I love looking around charity shops for one off pieces (which is where I get most of my furniture from now). Here's something I made earlier...

I made this photo frame by spray painting a simple wooden frame.  I found a really cheap plate with a nice design on it and smashed it to pieces (great stress reliever)!!! Stuck the pieces on and voila!!! Simples...

My next bargain has to be my beloved chair, literally rescued by my mum from the charity shop.  It was a horrible green velvet chair which was in quite good condition.  We re-upholstered it and love the end result.  It's also super comfy.  Thanks mum...


I love my bathroom just as much as my room!!!  I've only just got round to re-decorating it and gone for bright colours and old posters....

I just couldn't squeeze in everything so why not put all my other ornaments in together. And I just couldn't forget my big blue coffee jug.  Who knows what I'll use it for...it just looks nice... 

You'll be surprised my the amount of things you can buy in charity shops...so why not pop down today for some great deals!!!

Have a great week..
