Champagne taste on a beer budget?

Hi everyone! 

So I'm going to do a post on being thrifty! Iv been doing a bit of up cycling recently on some items of furniture and just want to share some ideas on how the have and make fabulous expensive looking pieces but in a shoe string budget.

Firstly I just want to apologise for not having more consistent blog posts, iv had a few changes in work so have been quite busy the last two weeks but I will vow to do more posts even if there just short and sweet. 
I will start to do some ootd posts too! 

So the reason why I started to up style furniture is because after buying my first house I seen all these fabulous French furniture pieces in the shops but unfortunately the price tags weren't anywhere near my budget but I still wanted pieces that looked fab and not to waste money on items I didn't really want.

In my older blog post on the interior workshop I attended is where I got the idea to paint furniture. I was introduced to the fabulous Annie Sloan chalk paint! 
So one rare Saturday that I had off I headed into town and picked up a tin for €27 from a shop called the find on Cows lane in Dublin City centre.
