It’s the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint prize pack I won from Kartina Chambers blog {I mentioned it HERE!}

I can’t wait to get into it!!! They are sew pretty!

I have recently upcycled a cheap TV cabinet for the boy’s new playroom {I am re-arranging and re-painting all the rooms}.

I used Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint for it. It is lightly shabbied and waxed.
This is the before and after :

Kids TV cabinet makeover

I will take some better pictures of it and share in a future post.

I recently tried my hand at making my own chalk paint and have started a little project with it :

I am in love with the colour! It is sooooo bright and beautiful!!

I am also going to try to make my own milk paint in the next few days!
When I have done so, and used it, I will do a special post rating the 4 in my own opinion. So stay tuned! 😉

I’d love it if you would head on over and ‘like’ it! And appreciate it muchly if you shared it with your friends too! Thanks in advance 😉 😀

The main reason I did this is cos sometimes I want to share something short …

For instance.

Last night I was doing the folding. I wash for all about once a week … And last night I folded 21 pairs of my eldest baby’s jocks. Twenty one! How does one kid wear 21 pairs of jocks in 7 days or less????

….. See? A funny line or two on a facebook post, but not something I can base a whole blog post on, right?

Or this.

I have been suffering from a dry scalp the last few years {Strangely enough my hair/scalp just hasn’t been the same since having the kids – #256 on the list of things ‘they’ don’t tell you before you have kids! 😉 } So I have been researching natural treatments on Pintrest. {Follow me on Pintrest HERE!} And last week I treated my scalp with warm olive oil and rinsed it with apple cider vinegar ….. Since then I have only washed with a water/bicarb mix and rinsed with a water/apple cider vinegar mix.
My hair hasn’t looked or felt this good in a looong time! I am off for a trim tomorrow, and I am very interested to see if my lovely hairdresser thinks it’s improved from her perspective too 🙂

Or this.

{Which I am MEGA excited about!!!}
I recently won an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint pack from one of my all time favourite blogs – Katrina Chambers {of The Block fame}
See? Excitement!!!!! I am hanging out for it to arrive so I can playyyy!
I made over a tv cabinet for the boy’s playroom last week using Milk Paint, and I will share a pic in the next few days 🙂

Well, I am off to crash as I have been on the go since 5.30am – a 10hr day at work! … A big one for me and for my poor tired little babies ❤
I will be back with some updated quilt and tv cabinet pics soon!
