10 DIYs of Summer: Part 4

A brand new renovation has just been completed at Casa Ribena. I've gone classic and affordable with the permanent fittings, and now what we need are the unique personal touches. Stay tuned for my 10 DIYs of summer - maybe you can be inspired to do something for your own space! Here's part 4...

 I've always loved this chair, though I always knew the fabric wouldn't look good for long. Pretty quickly the kid's vegemite and yoghurty fingers had it ruined and a makeover was much needed. Better to keep it safe in the new divine setting of my bedroom with some glamourous peacock teal damask, which once had been a bedspread!

 Now it has a thicker, softer layer of fabric on it and it's the perfect chair to perch on by the window to put on a select pair of shoes from the collection! Oh, the shoes!


 A little bit nanna, and a lot contemporary. Another bold pop of colour in our new bedroom... I LOVE!
