Oufit of the day - F&F Chain Detail Dress

Bag - Primark
Watch - River Island
Earrings - H&M

I have been on the lookout for a dress with chain detail for a while but couldn't quite find the right one. A few weeks ago I spotted this dress by Florence & Fred on the Clothing at Tesco website in blue but it was the red* version that really caught my eye.

I'm a big fan of tunic style dresses and the gold chain across the neck line looks great. The dress is a lovely floaty chiffon material so would keep you cool on a warm summer's day.

 Round neck chain collar

But it's the cross over cut out back that really makes the dress. I wore it with a high bun so I could show it off - it would be a shame not to!

 Loving the cross over/cut out back!

Upcycled coffee table

My upcycled coffee table

I have been looking for a country style wooden coffee table for my living room but so far all styles in stores are not quite the style I was looking for.

I decided that I would find a second hand coffee table and paint it myself! I found this one in my local charity shop and decided it was perfect for my living room. 

Before

I cleaned and sanded the legs and top of the coffee table then painted the legs using Annie Sloan Old White Chalk Paint.  After painting the legs two coats of paint, I waxed and buffed the legs and then painted the top with clear varnish.

After

I am so happy with the final product! It is exactly how I wanted it and really love how the colour came out on the coffee table legs.

Would love to see what other people have upcycled let me know of your favourite projects!
