Transforming my Bathstore Bathroom Cabinet

I was set a challenge by Bathstore to customise one of their fab bathroom cabinets.  We chose the Savoy mirrored cabinet and decided that it was going to go in our downstairs loo.

So first things first we went to install the cabinet and decided that we needed to paint the room!  So I set MadDad to work with the paintbrush, whilst I put my thinking cap on for the customisation project.

Now the thing is this cabinet is beautiful.  Well made and finished and I contemplated painting it bright yellow, but the boys used their veto!

So I decided to get creative with my Cricut mini and I made a vinyl decal to stick on the mirror in grey saying "smile you are beautiful".

I love positive affirmations and I always tell the boys that they are beautiful on the inside and the outside, so this seemed really apt for us.

The room is so small that it is hard to get a good picture, but we love it and are really happy with our small, but significant change.


  1. Clever! I like the way the mirror gives it a shadow effect behind the writing. Gives it a lovely depth

  2. That's such a lovely quote. And such a great reminder to have on a mirror. Sometimes having these little reminders round the house really helps you change your mindset a bit. And I can't believe you made it, well done you. x

  3. Simple but effective, it looks great :-)

  4. I think your cabinet looks lovely. I have 'shabby chicced' a few items myself and it is well worth the effort to upcycle a solid item you have already for a few pounds rather than buying something cheap and mass produced that falls to bits in no time.

Bissell Vac and Steam Machine Review and Giveaway

I have hard floors downstairs which I love.  They are much more practical than carpet with 2 mucky boys and a dog. Over the past 8 years I have tried all sorts of ways to keep them clean and I think I have finally found the product that does that for me. It is the  Bissell Vac and Steam Machine .  This amazing suel action machine vacuums and steam cleans either independently or at the same time.  It means that I have done away with my vacuum and steam cleaner downstairs (which I gave to my brother in law). What I like: You can either vacuum or steam clean or do both It is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre The handle is adjustable great for a home with people of different heights and for getting the kids involved. You need no chemicals The pads are washable and reusable It comes with a two year guarantee It warms up fast (within 30 seconds) so no long wait to start cleaning It costs under £100 It is space saving.  No need for a separate vacuum, steam cleaner or mop. 

Tissue paper poppy badges

Remembrance Sunday will soon be upon us and my boys take part in the annual church service and march as Beavers. This year MadDad will also be marching in his capacity as Manager of the U7's football team.  We are great believers in remembering what people have done for us and the boys have been busy making tissue paper poppies at Beavers.
