DIY Duvet Cover!

DIY Duvet Cover!

I still haven’t learnt from my last DIY post so again I am very sorry for the lack of photos!! Ok, so I have been super indecisive about what colour duvet I want on Cortez’s bed, since his bed and canopy are grey I have to be careful which colour I choose. I had two colours in mind…plain white or a light elephant grey but I didn’t want to fork out hundreds of dollars for the ones I have my eyes on incase I wasn’t happy with the colour so I decided to give…

I’ll start by saying that I SUCK at taking photos as I go when I do DIY projects! I do plan on taking good photos as I go but I get far too excited to get stuck into it and I forget! So apologies for the lack of photographs but I do have snapchat photos and sneaky pics (not great quialty so sorry about that!) that I had sent to people and I shall do my best to explain what I have done!

I originally wanted a tall French wardrobe with double doors or even a French cabinet that…

DIY Blog Planner and Diary

DIY Blog Planner and Diary

Im a bit of a stationary geek and I love cute notebooks and diaries, since starting my blog iv been on the hunt for the perfect planner and diary but iv been rather disappointed in the ones I have come across so far, most looked boring or just didn’t have the correct pages that I wanted so today I decided to make my own!  I wanted something that I could keep important dates, ideas, appointments organised all in one place without the need of multiple books to carry around. I’m pretty happy with how this turned…
