Country Kitchen Makeover Plans..


Over the years; when I decorate a room in the house I like to complete it as fast as I can. I hate decorating and all the mess that goes with it. I like to get the whole room finished asap!!

The end result is usual looks nice, very clean, acceptable, modern and OK I suppose!!Never the WOW factor or I love it!!


I have always wanted a nice country cottage and mostly a country cottage kitchen. Can you archive this look in a modern house!?

I love the mixture of old and new.

Shabby and chic.

Modern and vintage.

Modern with a vintage twist!!

I love the thought of my kitchen being full of things on a Welsh dresser. 

Baking things on shelves being in reach instead of having to get on my hands and knees to eventually find something right at the back of my cupboard.

Kitchen Makeover : Pasta Vase...


I picked this vase up from Ikea £1.00 what a bargain!?! Use and old vase, new vase or a recycled large jar.

You will need

  • Glass vase
  • Candles
  • Dried pasta
  • Fake leaves
  • Glue

What to do
  • Grab your vase.
  • Placed some candles in the middle for display.
  • Fill the jar with some dried pasta around the candles.
  • Stick the leaves on with a glue on each leave.
  • Then tie some garden twine around.
*Leaves and glue was gifted to me for review on my other blog clairejustineoxox.
*I was not paid for this post.

Shoe Cabinet For Under £30.00...


Having a large family, hiding all the shoes away can be a big task. I have been looking for ages for a big shoe rack that looks nice and tidy, holds lots of shoes and is trendy in the hallway too. Having broken our last shoe rack how could I add all our shoes onto the little shelves that you see in the shops?
