End of the week round-up!

A visit to TK Maxx brough fruitful rewards yesterday!
I managed to bag some gorgeous thick glasses with a little cow on the front of each, they say Fresh Milk too so will be fabulous for the dessert tables!  2 decanters, more glasses, a stunning huge display plate, Spongebob baking tin (£3.99 bargain!) and those beautiful cake stands and dishes!
Did I tell you how much I love that store!

Thought I would share a little update on the downstairs loo redo!
As you know im taking part in Sandras Pretty Crafty Home and the loo is getting the first overhaul.  Chandelier paid for with Tesco vouchers, wallpaper bought partly with the refund from the wallpaper left over in the living room means that it hasnt been an expensive make over at all (the blind was reduced to £4 in B&Q and the other bits picked up from....yes, TK Maxx!) lol
This is in progress, as you can see we dont have the lights sorted yet as Stu was still putting them up and it turns out the wiring is shot! We will go tomorrow and pick up the bits needed, the voile for the window and then once the mirror etc is back in place we are done :)
I love it!!


  1. Looks great - but need more piccies!! My downstairs loo is being started tomorrow - can't wait! I hardly use it at the mo, as it is so grim. Didnt know you could use chandeliers in a toilet - thought it still had to be a closed in bathroom light because of the close proximity to water???!! -x-

  2. Hi Hun
    I wouldnt put one in a bathroom but since our downstairs look doesnt even have a sink then we are ok. Theres no risk of condensation :)
    I will share lots more pics once its finished - thanks for your post :)

  3. Beautiful. I love the wallpaper and it all looks so glamorous! Very thrifty and barginous too - well done!

  4. there's a huge TKMaxx opening out of town Derby very soon, hope it stocks some of these gorgeous goodies you always seem to find - the one in town always seems sadly lacking.

  5. such good bargains at TK Maxx, I must visit soon as it appears they have come up trumps for you recently! Great makeover!
