Upcycling, decorating and toastying

I've had a slightly more productive day today and it's been nice to get a few things done. I made the effort to get dressed in my what I call "posh clothes" and went to browse the local shops. Ended up buying a cheap toastie maker to enrich my day of painting.

Boots: Oasis, Jeans: River Island, Scarf: Fat Face,
Gilet: Joules, Jumper: Warehouse.
My second bedroom is now white and awaiting a new bed which is due to arrive next Wednesday. For the moment though, it's still a junk room!

I got a little bit adventurous with my toastie maker.....I made the most amazing concoction from banana, peanut butter and chocolate spread with popping candy! (All ingredients from Sainsburys)

Then I enjoyed eating it with a cup of tea and my copy of Prozac Nation by Elizabeth Wurtzel. Perfect way to spend a Sunday, in my opinion.


I've also been planning how to upcycle this retro cabinet that I got for £4 from my local charity shop. Unfortunately, before I could get it home, it got knocked over and the mirror broke. Sad face.
So I've smashed off the rest of the glass with a hammer so I can cover the front with some funky wallpaper. Possibly something Orla Kiely stylee!

And that's what happens when you smash glass without wearing gloves. Not recommended. Health and safety is, of course, very important......

What did you do with your weekend?
