My Bargins

Well off I went to the charity shops, and the greengrocers, today. The greengrocers is lovely every Saturday he gives me a box of greens etc for my guinea pigs free, and I get whatever veg I need for the week from him as well for me (not free lol )
Well went into the first charity shop and the lady in there saves me fabric that they can not sell and I buy it off them, which helps me as I only like using recycled fabrics. Well look at this gem of fabric, it was mucky and horrid, the lining had rips which was why they couldn't sell it at the shop. I have washed it and look how it is now, can not wait to turn this into something special.

Photobucket

and in the second charity shop I treated myself to some curtains for my bedroom, they have also washed up lovely and they were a bargain at £2.00 for the pair.

Photobucket

sadly they are not lined but that turned out not to be a problem as i found a pair of thermal curtain liners for a £1.00 so all now just waiting to be ironed and put up at bedroom window.
Hope you all have had a brill day ,

My ottoman

I have next to no storage space in our home, and it does create problems. So I came up with the idea of an ottoman for in the bedroom. So I asked on our local freecycle (does that make me a cheapskate?) and to my utter joy I was offered two Lloyd Loom type ottomans, which were a matching pair but in different sizes. So lots of storage.

The larger one a little battered and in need of a freshen up.

Now my bedroom I want to do in a shabby chic sort of style so I knew just what fabric I had that I wanted to redo them with. And which colour I wanted to re paint them in , as then they will go with my dream bedroom, that I am trying to achieve.

So here is the smaller one all finished, I think LOL

Photobucket

and my lovely fabric

hope you like it
