♥ Cute Homewares ♥
I bought this plain wooden dining table & chairs from Argos a while ago, and painted it to make it more me! I took inspiration from some Cath Kidston plates I have, and did a scalloped edge design with rose centre on the table, & then painted all the chairs different pastel shades. This took what seemed like forever, the chairs were actually the hardest part, because they were so fiddly to paint and varnish.
The lovely people over at Joules recently sent me this duvet cover & matching pillowcases. The design is lovely, and the fabric sooo soft compared to all my other duvet covers. Definitely the most luxury bedding I own, now to get some sheets that match!
Today I made this lampshade, using this kit I bought on Amazon. I used my leftover Spoonflower fabric, and made it in about 30 mins or so. It's not perfect, but not bad for a first attempt. There was lots of leftover tape, so I also added some lace that I had to accent the edges. What do you think?
Finally, how cute is my kettle? I keep calling it a teapot, because it looks so much like one. It's ceramic, I'd been putting off buying a kettle for ages because I couldn't find any I liked, but then I spotted this one at Dunelm Mill, & had to get it.
