Styling the Seasons - January
29 Jan 2015
This circle shelf was a bargain I found in Homesense, in the sale section. It was a bit battered, had a distressed finish and a world map painted on hessian as the background. I took it home in the hope I could sand it all back and give it a new lease of life. And after a fair amount of sanding and a few coats of paint, I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.
I've been doing lots of de-cluttering and reorganising this month, but I've still purchased just a couple of new little bits. Like the letter C initial which I just couldn't resist, and the tiny bowls which are perfect for tiny treasures. Its nice to have another surface to put a few of our most recent finds on, like the heart stone and driftwood, reminding me of special days out with the kids.
I love bringing in plants and flowers at this time of year. I have little pots with bulbs dotted around the place and vases of cheery daffodils to brighten the place up. I've noticed the daffodils in the garden are nearly flowering and the snow drops have appeared this week. Spring is definitely on its way! x
