I also love to create unique home decor items like trays, coasters and planters with beautiful colours and prints.โ€

Cranberry Red by Doesnt it pair well with this red William Morris print on the shelves โค

What else can I paint red or green?! I'm looking at my tired, faded purple boots and thinking they could do with a festive upgrade... ๐Ÿ‘ข๐Ÿ‘ข๐ŸŽ„

One of my favourite colours to paint with, navy blue.

I had purple plans for these nightstands, but was thrilled when they were swooped up by a friend who requested this Midnight Blue colour, with the brass Marrakesh pulls and wooden top.

They had previously been painted inside and out, but had obviously been bashed about and well used. Definately ready for a sophisticated new look!


Happy Friday!

What's everyone's weekend plans? We've just finished building our new garden fence (thanks dad!) So I can finally start planning some glorious flower beds ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒป

Can you tell I was in a really "gardeny" mood when I took this photo ๐Ÿ˜„๐ŸŒฟ

Evening all! Quick refurb for this quirky vintage shaving mirror.

The varnish was flaky and needed removing, then I decided this navy blue shade is what it needed for it's new life!

As pretty as it looks on my shelf, I'll be taking it to my stall at tomorrow!



Time to de-dust and show my shelves some love!

I took everything down from around the living room so I could have a good look at what we have, and move things around.



Fine before, but let's have some dark botanicals! ๐ŸŒท

So many lovely colours to pick out of this paper, but that purple went *Zing!* in my head and i'm eager to try out So let's start with Black Cherry ๐Ÿ’œ


Black decor, timeless and classic ๐Ÿ–ค

We like to fill our home with interesting and beautiful findings that feel like they've lived a life already. Sometimes with a splash of otherworldly, but one theme you'll find on every shelf, is nature. ๐ŸŒฟ

I gathered up a little collection of natural elements for this tray, maybe next week I'll switch to old books and some dried flowers!

How would you style these trays?

Available to buy from and my Etsy.

Ah last year I launched Resurrection Furnishings! ๐ŸŽ‰

Things are ticking along nicely, I'm glad I took the step to have a physical space to act as a showroom, and I'm proud to be part of family! ๐ŸŒŸ

Onwards and upwards for this year. I have plans to start a YouTube channel... ๐Ÿ˜ฌ Will I be brave enough? Who do I think I am?!

Thanks for following! Let's paint! ๐Ÿ–Œ๐Ÿ–Œ

Blakemere visit yesterday! Took this cabinet to my stall, and a few small pretties ๐Ÿ–ค

I love gathering up treasures from around the house and giving them some time in front of the camera ๐Ÿฆ‡๐Ÿ’€

Really enjoyed refinishing this Jacobean corner cabinet. It was pretty tired and needed some care. I was originally going to distress the edges, but once I'd decided on this metallic print for the interior, it seemed natural to use a beautiful bronze to highlight all those details.

Available on my stall at or in my Etsy shop! ๐Ÿ–ค


Beautiful customer photo of one of our blue round trays. How lovely! ๐Ÿ•ฏ๐Ÿ”ฎ๐Ÿ’Ž๐ŸŒธ

*Edit - Sorry I'm not sure what happened to that 2nd image!! Glitchy.*

Love this paper! I have a little bit left, so next time I might try it against another paint colour, because why not ๐Ÿ’›

Tried it out at the bottom of my stairs, doesnt really suit the purple paint and stripey carpet ๐Ÿ˜† But it's the perfect size for that area!

Taking it to The Design Shed next week!

I've had my fix of smaller flowery projects now! I wanted to chip away at the mountain of pieces I collected last year ๐Ÿ˜…

Now it's time for another big beastie, and get back to black! ๐Ÿ–ค

๐ŸŒฟ Beautiful foliage in Autumnal shades on this print, it was a tough decision for which colour to pick out for the table base ๐Ÿ’›

I'm working with the reverse colours today on a small green corner stand, which will have a mustard toned floral print, with green paints.


Lovely visit to yesterday. Shifted the pieces around in my booth to make room for the newbies!

Getting ahead of myself and already thinking of ways to style the space for Halloween and Christmas ๐Ÿ˜… Love having a physical space to display everything!


Another fresh Spring colour used on this latest piece ๐ŸŒž

I have something really exciting happening come March, so for now I'm a busy bee creating lots of lovely decor pieces ๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ–Œ

Here's a sneak peak at some of the tray designs, which will also have matching coasters.


Funky inside and out! ๐ŸŒฟ

I used the yellow background version of this paper to line the drawers as nothing else felt right!
So much colour! ๐ŸŒˆ

๐ŸŒด๐Ÿฆœ Tropical blues!

My Goddaughter has just moved house and now has her own room, so I painted her this teal dressing table with tropical print.

I love this colour! Steel Teal by ๐Ÿ’™


From pretty pastels to moody forest vibes.

๐Ÿ’ก I was kindly given this lamp stand by a friend. It had been given a pale blue chalk paint makeover. I loved the carved details and knew I wanted to give it a moodier darker look.

It waited patiently for months whilst I pondered what type of shade it needed. Until one day, there it was, this green Victorian beauty with orange flora. Yes please!!

Possibly my favourite combination, wood with dark green.


Evenin' all! I've had the glue gun out this afternoon with my daughter, together we found lots of things we could do with it whilst it was out.

We glued the wings back on her fairies, fixed some Xmas decs that I can finally put away in the attic, stuck the doorbell up outside and the most fun of all - secured twine around bunches of dried flowers, and hung them up ๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿฅ€๐ŸŒพ
