Upcycled

I went for a little wander in Kit and Caboodle the last time I was in Newburgh for knitting group. It's a cute little shop that sells a mixture of vintage, upcycled and hand crafted goods. 

This time I bought a chair for my spare room......it must have been the geographer in me that attracted me to it.


I also got new bedding.....it came from Marks and Spencer and I love the village pattern - I have towels to match for my bathroom.


Talking of bathrooms, I've painted the lower half, it is no longer mustard, now it is dark grey. It's still a pretty ugly bathroom but it has to look better than this.....mustard is never a good look for a bathroom!

Hahaha -- I guess I never thought about how mustard would look in a bathroom -- you're too funny. I love that chair -- very cool!

You're doing so well! Hope to do something around here soon too, but then again, I'm soon starting work after maternity leave. Mustard is not a good colour for a bathroom, however very 70s. Love the linens! And the lamp on the side.

I'm in love with your new chair!! That is great fabric, wherever it came from! And you have been busy! It's hard to remake bathrooms but just changing paint probably looks remarkably better. We've been watching home renovation shows, trying to get inspired here!
