been a while since i've shared some links huh? sorry about that, i've missed it so here i am again! so i have a pretty chilled weekend ahead fingers crossed, thanks to a week of torrential rain (apparently the weather did not get the memo that's it's june) we're all just relieved that it's dry enough to take gabe out to play at the park and stretch our legs again. i've actually managed to remember that it's fathers day on sunday so of course i've got to panic buy (or make?) something last minute for my pops (and gah, also for james! i still find it strange buying fathers day gifts for anyone other than my dad, is this normal?) we're hoping to squeeze in some chill time catching up on tv when gabe has gone to bed in the evenings, we've fallen behind on so many series we've resorted to writing up a list of shows we've not finished to encourage us to cram them in before the next series arrives. hope you've got something ni...
Post in collaboration with Gorilla Glue   I've wanted to try making my own picture frames for a while, it just seemed logical to make some frames for the posters that I've not had time to frame. I researched making traditional frames but to be honest they're pretty boring and I'm not looking to reinvent the wheel here! I decided to make magnetic frames instead, you can easily open them to switch your prints in and out in seconds which suits me waaaay better.  Not only are they great for hanging art, posters or calendars but you can also make your own framed botanical artwork for them. (Since I'm slowly trying to turn my house into a mini rainforest why not display my plant collection on the walls as well as on my shelves?) I've teamed up with Gorilla to show you how to make this framed botanical wall display, read on to see how. You'll need: Pine stripwood  (mine was 6mm x 15mm x 2400mm) Gorilla Super Glue Precise Gel Neody...
my name is caroline and i have a rattan addiction... seriously, i just can't help myself. since cane furniture can be ridiculously expensive i'm finding it impossible to resist DIY-ing my own with the help of some cane webbing. it's easy to source and gives you so many options for giving your furniture a quick makeover. this table is the most basic of IKEA purchases.. a £12 nesna nightstand. (yup, £12. not exactly breaking the bank right?)  i'm so happy with my new boho addition i had to share it... you can find the step by step tutorial for how i made it over on hunker .. go take a look at how easy this IKEA hack was to achieve! caroline x ps. if you're looking for cane webbing in the UK this is where i source mine....
happy easter guys, hope you're all enjoying a few days off? (have you made the compulsory pilgrimage to the garden center and hardware store yet?) i love to fix up the house over the holidays so i figured i'd share a quick little project for this s-hook shelf in case anyone was interested in making one!  in my marie kondo-esque mission to utilise all the wasted storage space in our house i decided to make an easy shelf that would work in cupboards, closets or small spaces like bathrooms to hang all our stuff on. ...
rainbows are having a bit of a moment.. or is it just me? i'm always looking at nursery decor and lately i can't stop obsessing over rainbows, especially ones in more muted tones.  i've wanted to make a wall hanging for ages so when creative rox asked if i'd like to make something with their products a rainbow wall hanging was an easy choice. ...
i feel like storage is always pretty high on my home agenda- we don't have much built-in storage so every cupboard and unit counts! with an ever-growing collection of toys and clothes breeding in every drawer i'm having to get more and more creative with how i'm storing my stuff. i've been doing a few things to maximize the unused spaces in my home and i thought i'd share a few with you.. i figure some of you might be bursting at the seams too and hey every little helps right? one of my favourites is this hidden door storage, all you need is this grid panel  -I've shared the idea and how to quickly install it over at hunker home , go check it out. it's a really quick way to utilize cupboard doors as they're such a wasted space!!  (i styled it up with cleaning utensils for these photos but after a wardrobe reshuffle i'm now using it to hang handbags and totes- it works SO well as it keeps them super tidy and easy to browse. no more ...
