It’s been over a month since we shared our last Ikea Hack. So, as true Ikea addicts we thought it was high time we shared another! Today we’re sharing our Ikea Hemnes Hack, which is now taking pride of place in our guest bedroom.
I’ll be the first to admit, we don’t really do Valentine’s Day. We get each other a card and perhaps go out for meal (or more likely stay in with a bottle of wine) but that’s about it. However, this year, I’ll be away with work on the day itself which does seem a little sad. It feels like this year might be the year to make more of an effort, you know?
With that in mind, I’ve found some really creative DIY Valentines gift ideas on some equally creative blogs. So, check them out! I’ll let you guys know whether I manage to attempt any of these awesome ideas myself, or whether it’s another bottle of wine for us love birds!
Shutters have always been a “one day I’ll have these in my home” goal. I’ve always thought they looked incredible, but due to the cost never thought we’d realistically be able to afford them. Well this was until just before Christmas, when my “one day” goal came true!
I was browsing Instagram and came across a post by The Home That Made Me where they’d installed DIY shutters into their home. They had a discount code for 30% off, so we took the plunge and ordered some for our Living Room, Kitchen and Landing. They arrived in the week leading up to Christmas and today I’m so, so, SO excited to be able to share them with you.
For the first post of 2017 we’re really spoiling you with a DIY tutorial, and a fairly simple one at that! Sea Urchins seem to be hugely popular as a styling accessory within home decor, but traditionally they tend to be finished in gold or brass. I don’t know how popular they are in the UK however, as I’ve never seen one for sale anywhere. So, what’s a girl to do? DIY her own of course!
So here we are, the end of 2016 with 2017 nearly upon us! 2016 has been a big year for us personally as we spent the first half of the year in what felt like the world’s longest house chain. Thankfully everything finally completed in early May, and since then we’ve really felt like we have a real home. We have some exciting house projects and DIYs to share in early 2017 but until then read on over for our 2016 review.
