When there’s only a small budget and you want to update a look of a kitchen or bathroom, when the home is rented or you’d rather not a permanent design change or you fancy a quick and easy update to your tiles; tile stickers are a quick easy way to go with so many patterns and styles now available across the high street and online.
We love the bright coloured patterns from SirFaceGraphics, the minimal clean modern look from the stickers at josiecrafts on eBay and for a unique look head to Love Maps On for beautiful map image tile stickers (see main picture)
For some people there is nothing better then a relaxing evening in a bath with a book and a glass of wine. Putting said book and wine somewhere safe isn’t always easy, so have you considered a bath caddy?
This practial addition to your bathroom is straight forward in construction made fully of wood [ cedar is a good choice ], and if you have the correct tools, simple to make.
With a nod to our favourite style providers, the Scandinavians, these wooden beaded towel holders are simple to make and look great in a bathroom or kitchen.
This simple tutorial from SpoonForkBacon is easy to follow and can be adapted in size and colour depending on your interior preference. Beads and the leather straps can be ordered online from a craft supplier or there is plenty of choice on eBay, and then you just need a length of pliable wire that is slim enough to fit through the holes in the beads. The wooden beads can be dyed, varnished or stained to which ever colour suits the room.
This great project could be made large for bath towels, great in a kitchen for a tea towel or other areas in the home could look lovely as a decorative feature.
Sometimes it’s nice to go one step further when accessorizing your home or even giving gifts, by making or creating your own thing. Today we head to the bathroom, looking at how to make fab colour-blocked soap.
With the use of melt & pour white soap, some colouring, essential oils and a mould, you are good to go. You can pick any shape mould you like, and especially if it’s a gift you can be more adventurous. Play with colours that suit you and choose a scent you love for the perfect soap.
We have found three tutorials for you to give a go.
