1. Coffee Table
After a lovely morning catching up with Nell and meeting little baby Josephine, I popped into the nearby charity shop where someone had just dropped off this vintage coffee table which I promptly snapped up for the grand sum of £12 - I literally couldn't hand over the cash fast enough as I didn't want any one else to nab it. It is utterly perfect for our front room as we needed something more long and thin. Plus it has rounded corners so it's happily baby proof.
2. Sofa Covers
Having bought a cheap 3 seat Ikea Karlstad sofa, I found the fantastic Bemz company online from which you can order covers for any Ikea furniture, current or discontinued. They will happily send you five free swatches so that you can check the fabric colour and quality before you buy, and when our covers arrived we were bowled over by the gorgeous texture and colour of the fabric we chose. Now I just have my eye on some Pretty Pegs although I think that might be an Ikea hack too far!
After a morning meeting in Clevedon, we popped into a nearby furniture project store and found this cutey pie little cabinet for £4.95. Our mouths literally fell open when we heard the price and before we knew it, it was in the boot. I love it, although I still need to work out where's best for it to end up.
