A Few of My DIY Projects

I was browsing through my blog today, and I realised that it’s been sooo long since I’ve done a DIY project! Well while I dream up my next project (I have just moved house, so there will be plenty on the way…) I though I would share some of my past projects from the archives… I hope you enjoy them! Please feel free to share your own DIY projects in the comments, I need a bit of inspiration!!

How to make tissue paper Pom Pom’s! 

This quick and easy tutorial shows you how to make colourful paper pom pom’s to decorate your party (or your bedroom, hehe)


My DIY Campervan- The Inside So Far! 

So basically, Martin and I bought a van, and decided we were going to turn it into a campervan! We built a bed and some storage, and drove from London to Portugal (it was very comfortable actually!) It’s getting a makeover this Summer, so keep your eyes out for that if you are into that kind of thing.


Nursery Makeover

My friend, Silvia had a baby, so we thought we would give her room a makeover! See the full post for before and after pics, and the rest of the room!

How to make a white feather lampshade

I wanted a white feather lampshade, but they were sooo expensive in the shops… So what did I do? I made one myself! This was a while back and the pictures are really bad, but I loved this tutorial, and the lamp looked amazing. I’ll try to do a better one in the future so I can get some better pictures 🙂

DIY Chair Maeover

This was super quick and easy to to, and great if you are on a budget! I would definitely recommend fabric paint if you can’t afford to re-upholster and old chair!
