DIY Outdoor Cushions

As part of our recent garden update, the new table and chairs we picked up were crying out for some seat cushions, not only for comfort but I love adding fabrics to a space to add texture and pattern. On our recent visit to the Summer Country Brocante at Cowdray Castle I spotted a bistro… Continue reading DIY Outdoor Cushions

Bathroom Renovation – The Inspiration

It's been a whole 2 weeks since my last bit of DIY, so naturally I was having withdrawal syndrome and said to Toby that I was fed up of waiting for our new bathroom and that we were just going to do it.
