Rustic wire spice rack

My pursuit of all things rustic is complete for a while, when I come across anything made of wrought iron, wire or wicker – ideally all three combined. For years I have been collecting rustic storage units made from wire, with leaf details. It started when one of my bosses in the hotel I worked in 11 years ago, bought a key hook, made of black wrought iron, with beautifully painted grapevine details. I pestered her for about two weeks before she gave in, and offered it to me – amazing! I still have it, my first treasured rustic beauty.

So when I came across this rustic wire spice rack, I knew it will fit perfectly with my collection (which grew with the years that followed). I’d love to keep it for myself, but I know that if I continue to keep all the vintage finds I love, I’ll run out of space at home – and the storage unit. So although I love it, it’s time to let go – I’m sure this stunning rustic spice rack will find a good home!

DIY driftwood spoons

I love nautical home decor. And anything inspired by the sea and the coast. So for me driftwood is the most stylish way to decorate the house. I love collecting it from the local beaches and putting around the house. Today I found really unique DIY project – driftwood spoons. They look amazing, and I can see them being popular on the summer garden party, or picnic on the beach – I love them! What do you think – would you try this project yourself?

Winter Garden Party…

Rustic Wrought Iron Candle Holder

This Winter (or still Autumn actually) is quite mild, especially here in Cornwall. I still get away with wearing my pumps and suit jacket, which is pretty marvellous, I absolutely love it. Not being a great fan of cold, I’m basking in the Autumn sun. But evenings can be rather mild too, and quite inviting. My neighbours still do barbeques in the garden! Yes, it is officially the 1st of December, but the weather is still good enough for garden parties. And it is also a fantastic excuse to show of your rustic outdoor decor.

Upcycling Inspiration

Upcycled teak vintage telephone seat

I’ve been browsing the web this morning, and I came across this stunning upcycled telehone seat… I have seen a number of these at the auctions, but never thought of buying it, as first of all, who is using stationary phones these days, and second, it’s not part of our lifestyles. we usually go for cordless phones, which we use wherever we’re in the house, instead of sitting by the phone in the hallway… But this beautifully restored table can be used in number of ways, as a little hall table to lighten your entryway, and work as a bench when you’re putting your shoes on. Or as a little seat by the bay window, little landing feature seat, and so on… I think the best way to furnish your home, is to go for the beautiful things that really grasp your attention, and then find a use for them. That way you will surround yourself with the things that make you happy! I will definitely be on a look out for a telephone seat right now and upcycle it into a hallway bench for my little space under the stairs!

Twine ball light garland as Christmas rustic home decor

This morning I’ve been searching for DIY twine projects, as I absolutely adore twine. I love using it to decorate around the house. Even if you take an old bottle and wrap a piece of twine around it, it magically transforms into the most sophisticated vintage vase! It definitely fits in very well with the nautical and rustic home decor.

So when browsing online, I came across really fantastic step-by-step tutorial by Pocketful of Dreams. It is a blog full of amazing DIY and craft projects, so really worth checking it out. Apart from stunning photos, which Michelle, the author, supplied and took herself, this tutorial gives you detailed instructions, which are written very well and are easy to follow. The said project on making Twine-ball light garland, is quite complicated on one hand, and a bit messy, but the effect is stunning.
