White Painted Floorboards

One of my latest obsessions is white painted floorboards! It seems that they appear on every page of every Home book or magazine I read (and I read a lot!!). So what to do about this obsession, bearing in mind I have two young Children should 'white' and 'floor' be combined???

Here are some beautiful inspiring examples I have come across:

Before and After ~ Childs Chair

I bought this chair for a snippet at 50p from a carboot:

Selling on Etsy

I opened my Etsy Shop  a year ago in January 2012. It took a while to get my first sale on there, but when I did I was very excited, slight understatement!! I think with Etsy the customers like to see you have had sales and this gives them confidence in your shop, but getting those first sales is hard - its a chicken and egg situation!!

My Craft Business

My little craft business has been going just over a year now and has gone from strength to strength! I feel so proud that my Handmade Hearts are now decorating so many peoples homes and Children's bedrooms.

My most popular selling platform has been though my Facebook Page, I have built up a good following and get lots of orders and enquiries through there. I also attended lots of markets and craft fairs last year and made lots of sales, this was also a great way to engage with customers and find out which products sell (and which don't!).
