The Making Home Weekly Link Up #7

Welcome to the #MakingHome weekly link up!

Be inspired by posts all about home; moving house, decorating, DIY, family activities, recipes, gardening and more. It’s all here under one roof at Mrs Crafty B’s.

In light of actually getting some paint up on a few walls and of course finding my crafty self again, I have been having a think about the personal touches we can put on our home. Hubby B and I have very different tastes so this can sometimes be a bit of a challenge. I've decided to start with something simple. Lampshades. Much to the dismay of most of our visitors, we are still bare bulbed around the place with the exception of our front room which is sporting the lampshade I made for the Hillarys craft competition. I have a real liking for these lampshade making kits and I have picked up some superhero wallpaper to make one for the boys room. I love that I can have something that no one else has, even if it's neutral! A bonus is that they are quite easy and satisfying to make. Have you ever had a go? Here is a little tutorial. It also includes some matching washable coaster covers.
