This is a D.I.Y project I did which took about 6 months and about a trillion vogue magazines, It used to my mums.
My bed side table - when I found this it was cream and the paint was flaking of and the top had some weird orange varnish on it that had dead flies stuck in it, the handles were also silver and pretty horrid.
I sanded down the top which took like 5 hours, I then stripped back the paint and re-painted it grey and bought these lovely crystal door knobs from eBay, I love the contrast of the wood and the grey paint.
I keep loads of stuff in Parfait jars, they make things look pretty.
I like to collect old throws and blankets for my bed, I think they look pretty.
Snippet of some books and cute candles.
I love to collect carved wooded boxes for some reason. I keep bracelets on a bottle neck and rings and stuff on the hand.
More Parfait jars
Pretty plate I found at a car boot, bell and some random shells I found.
GOLD DR MARTENS!!!!!!!!!!!! These have a story, and deserve a whole post.
I come from quite a thrifty family, I love to do D.I.Y projects and I'm always on the look out for cheap furniture and pretty nick-knacks at car boots and charity shops.
I haven't blogged in ages because I've had a virus that has lasted for about 3 weeks, also I have 7 GCSE exams in January that I've had to revise for. Another reason is that I have been staying up till about 3am, re-watching every single episode of the IT crowd.
I was looking forward to Christmas day for Dr Who more than any presents or the food, and that kind of got me thinking about my self and how geeky I used to be.
When I was younger I used to have an obsession with rocks and stones
I had a rock polisher, I HAD A FREAKING ROCK POLISHER.
I used to collect stones and get my dad to buy bags of rocks from eBay and I'd always look at the floor when walking anywhere in case I found a special stone,
I even did a talk to my class with all my rocks and geodes, I was about 9. I was not self aware.
I was a pretty geeky child I used to have square glasses and fangs that would even creep Chucky out.
But then I got braces and stopped needing to wear my glasses all the time.
I became more interested in Vogue than Geode.
