I love my house, sure its not mine and I’m not actually allowed to paint the walls….but I can decorate and as I don’t have all the money in the world its all charity shop/presents. I love putting paintings up and I feel like they really let you get your personality across, and without lifting a paintbrush can really change the look of a room.
I am addicted to decorating/rearranging and I have planned out rooms I don’t even have …. I wholeheartedly blame Pintrest! Its so easy to type in one thing (take staircases for example) and a million things come up, who would have thought staircases could be so cool?!
Anyway, below are my favourite parts of my house and where the said items/bits came from.
Whats the favourite thing in your house? Please tell me I’m not alone in being a diy/redecorating addict! <3
