Most popular pins

I have been on Pinterest now for over a year and can easily say I'm addicted, I thought I would have tired of it by now but I use it as my constant source of inspiration.

I thought I would share with you my most pinned pins to date:

This gorgeous living room - I love the grey sofa and chevron rug. 

This Ikea Living Room - more grey and white loveliness! 

Another beautiful Living Room - definitely a theme occurring! 

I have these curtains in the playroom and love them!

Love this idea for adding height and interest to your stall!

I love that some of my most pinned pins are also some of my favourite pins! I enjoyed going through my boards to find these, I found lots of forgotten about pins and also noticed I need to do some tidying up!!

Do you use Pinterest? Which have been your most popular pins? Please leave your Pinterest name below so I can have a nosey :)

Thank you for reading ~ Happy Pinning!!

New Old Door

We have wanted a new back door in the kitchen since we moved in but they are just so pricey. I was thinking about just re-painting the one we had and adding a new handle to spruce it up, but then I noticed that it was just a panel so we removed it (in the hope that underneath couldn't be much worse than what we already had).

So, here is the before:

And here it is with the panel removed, awful colours but loved the style...phew!! Please excuse the tools and mess :)

Before and After ~ Playroom Floorboards

Once we had put the children into a bedroom together, we wanted to turn the nursery into a playroom. First job was to rip up the laminate floor (see this post for pics), we were planning on putting a carpet down but luckily the floorboards were ok so we decided to paint them.

Before and After ~ Chest of Drawers

Hello, today I wanted to share with you a makeover I recently did on a chest of drawers.

The bow front drawers were an absolute bargain from the charity shop at £30!!

Crochet ~ Lampshade Cover

I had a very plain white lampshade on my lamp, so decided to give it a makeover with a crochet cover!
I used Stylecraft Special DK in shades white, silver and grey.

I measured the foundation row around the top of the lampshade, then did 2 rows of double crochet, followed by 24 rows of Granny stripe. The cover snugly fit onto the lampshade.

What do you think? I can see lots more of my lampshades getting a makeover!
More of my crochet makes can be seen on Instagram using the hashtag #thechimneypotcrochetmakes
