I have had the good fortune of getting myself some lovely second hand furniture that has totally revamped my daughter's bedroom and made her extremely happy indeed! I didn't cost us anything (just the cost of a thank you bottle of wine). We spent a few quid to make it all work for us and so I hope it qualifies as a Magpie Monday find!!
My friend who is uber house proud has refurbished her daughter's bedroom with some ultra deluxe solid wood built-in furniture. Consequently, the old stuff was no longer needed so she asked me if I wanted it. Bless her, she thought I was doing her a favour taking it off her hands!
The Wrought Iron Double Bedstead is in perfect condition. We bought Kizzy a duvet and a double duvet set from Dunelm Mill (the kids' designs in double size are obviously not best sellers and consequently were a steal at £8.99!!) She was chuffed to bits! Plus this has given us an extra sleeping space when the big kids come home to visit! She feels like a princess in her room.
***Having them has given us an excuse to sort through Freddy's clothes meaning his little cousin Dylan (son of QWERTY Mum) will be in line for a whole load of hand me downs! This is my favourite form of re-using and re-cycling!***
