A Simple DIY Framed Poster

A Simple DIY Framed Poster

Does this really require a tutorial? No, it does not. It was super simple and took all of twenty minutes. Am I going to give you one anyway? Damn straight. So, I bought a length of rounded wood trim, costing about £2.50, and cut four equal lengths, all a little wider than my poster. I already had string, but if I’d had to buy that too, it would’ve made my total supplies come in at about £4.50. The print I used… View Post

How To Create A Polka Dot Wall (Quickly)

How To Create A Polka Dot Wall (Quickly)

The polka dot wall was one of my favourite parts of Eleanor’s old nursery. It took me less than two hours and it had such a big impact on the room.

You can probably figure it out from the photos,… View Post

It was an easy process – I just pulled out the staples and peeled the fabric back around the corners so that I could get to the screws (and around the middle of the foot board, because that’s where the support beam is attached). It had been working… View Post

With S in his big boy room and out of the nursery once again (he gets downgraded to toddler status when we have guests, poor guy), said nursery is calling for its new occupant. And baby E, who is now seven months old, is well and truly ready for her own bedroom, just as we are well and truly ready to have our bedroom back to ourselves – I’m losing count of the number of times I’ve realized at lunch… View Post
