homesense event

Last night i had the privilege to attend another lovely HOMESENSE PR event at the Trafford centre branch. AS i stated before homesense is my all-time favourite decor shop.
Not a week passes without me purchasing a treasure from their mind blowing stock.
I got some lovely things last night and i will show you how i apply then in my home very soon. :)
it was great to meet fellow bloggers Sarah, Samio and of course my friend Anna.

The cosy club in Manchester

Have you been to the corn exchange lately? wow what a jaw dropping transformation . The historic building is Manchesters hottest dining destination. I decided to check out the COSY CLUB. the decor is a mix of Victorian , shabby chic with quirky modern elements. i loved the idea of providing games for the guest, like collect 4. what a great icebreaker for a first date. i chose to sit in the bar area with the doomed ceiling overlooking the inner atrium.
Their menu includes brunch, sandwiches, burgers, tapas and more. i decided to try the avocado toast with a poached egg. delicious.
i had a really good time and will go back.

HOW TO UPCYLE A BEDSIDE TABLE

I had this bedside table for a while but i didn't like the way i up-cycled it in the first place.
i bought a can of Rustoleum chalky furniture paint in power blue. i usually apply two coats of paint with a little roller. that works best for me. obviously i use a brush for the corners. after the paint dries i distress the piece with sandpaper to give it a vintage look. i have a little drawer full of decorative knobs. however i am going to a homesense event organized by ANNA so i ll get some more. i always match it with the piece itself but also the decoration around. it. final thought i will embellish it with a little bird. don't forget to drink loads of green tea!
message me if you have any question. love
