So lets start with bedding. As both boys will have new beds I needed to stock up on a ton of new bedding, I found it very difficult to decide on bedding especially for Eli as I didn't want anything to babyish. In the end I bought this this lovely retro car patterned bedding set from John Lewis which I absolutely love and as a spare this yellow and grey geometric bedding set which was a bargain in Wilkinsons for only £9! For Wesley I had already purchased a set from Vertbaudet but also picked up this spare truck print set from Asda again for only £9. I needed some curtains for Eli's room and I found it really difficult to find reasonably priced curtains that were big enough, in the end I settled for this bright blue pair from Ebay they are thermal and light reducing making them great for a child's bedroom.
These tin signs were an Aldi special buy and were only £3 a set the retro signs will most probably go in my kitchen and the Paris ones possibly in the bathroom. I managed to get some more of my favourite vintage bunting from thedotcomgiftshop it was on sale and i'm saving it for Eli's birthday. Lastly I have a brand new dinning room table and chairs that have been in storage for over 7 months, it is an absolutely stunning shabby chic restored country kitchen table and to make sure that the top does not get damaged I bought these pretty heart shaped place matts from Ebay.
This is my beautiful table and again to prevent damage to the top especially from my fruit bowl, I have also bought a couple of table runners from H&M in these two fabric prints both of which were only £6.99 each.
From Next I have a wipable table cloth to use when we are eating dinner because my boys do like to make a mess!! We also got a little storage box in the shape of a house, this will be going in our porch to keep out keys, any change and doggie bags in to keep it nice and organised. Lastly we decided to treat ourselves to a brand new kettle, in fact the prettiest kettle I think I have ever seen. It is actually ceramic like a tea pot which means we have to be extra careful with it but it does make the most fabulous tasting cup of tea!
I also already have a shoe cabinet and mirror for the porch and also two new curtain polls and two new baby gates. Everything may look a bit higgldy piggldy at the moment I cant wait until it all comes together and can share with you what our new house looks like.
Thank you for reading.
