Kidston Rosali Op Shop Find -My First Post

While visiting the Gold Coast this week I found an amazing Op Shop. I say this because I found an $8 bargain and I thought I would share it with you. I picked up a Queen Doona Cover and two pillow slips in a discontinued vintage Cath Kidston print. I understand this print was sold through Ikea. I love this print and in a creative mood....what to do with it?

I had a lampshade in the lounge which was just waiting for a makeover. It was a plain cream colour- a canvas for me.

Grabbed the glue gun and fabric adhesive, chopped up a pillowcase and voila, instant  change!!  Love it!!

 I added white braiding and a handmade beaded fringe I bought on Etsy a few months ago.

What to do with the rest? mmmmm..

A bayside moment for you...

I really like how you have transformed the lampshade, it looks so pretty like that.

You are lucky to have such stunning views on your doorstep, it looks beautiful. It's always interesting to see where other bloggers live.
