DIY: Update an old basket

Hi guys!

I had this old rattan basket in my storage room for ages. I didn’t really know what to do with it as it looked really “tired” so I decided to “upgrade” it. I used acrylic white paint to paint half of it and it looks so modern now!

If you want to try this with your old baskets, make sure you remember the following.

  1. Clean your basket with a wet cloth and leave it to dry before you start painting.
  2. Use masking tape to make sure you paint the basket in a straight line.
  3. Enjoy your new vamped rattan basket.

This can be used for toy storage, keeping cushions and throws in your living room or towels in your bathroom.

Would you try this?

Top 5 Picks #15

Hi guys!

It’s been a while since we posted a Top 5 and we couldn’t think of a better Top 5 comeback than a Bathroom one lol! Why you ask? Here at the Blingo HQ we treat all rooms equally and with the same love. Poor bathrooms are so often neglected – but with some effort you could have a bathroom that makes you proud.

  1. Clean it! Everyone loves a clean, decluttered bathroom. First step is to empty all the cupboards and give them a good scrub. Then check all your products for expiration dates, signs of spoilness or old age. Do you really need all these things? Make sure you keep only the items that you use or really love. Use plastic containers or cute baskets to sort your things. Continue with the rest of your bathroom.
  2. Dress it! Once your bathroom is nice and clean you can dress it using matching textiles – towels, bath mats, shower curtains. Matching towels are a must!
  3. Decorate it! Now the fun part… use small frames, decorative objects and luxurious candles to create the perfect atmosphere.

A clean, sparkling bathroom is very relaxing and it will make a big impact on your mood.

Colour Schemes 2016 #2

Hi guys!

How have you been?

Autumn is here! No, I’m not being funny, I know it’s mid October lol, but where I live autumn usually comes around this time of year. And so, I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate Fall (school starts, there is a cold breeze in the air, so many changes and decisions to be made… for some people autumn is considered to be “the beginning of the new year”) with the Autumn Colour Schemes for 2016.

As the weather gets cooler, we covet a cosier and warmer environment, so browns and beiges and neutrals are always welcome. Visit the Benjamin Moore website for more ideas.

Textiles and different textures are also very important. Try to pick warm and fuzzy textiles for a cosier look.

Have you ever felt like there are so many thoughts in your head that make it impossible for you to make up your mind? Well that’s how I feel with all the things I like right now lol. So I decided to create this new theme called “Obsessions” to try and keep track of all the lovely stuff I find online and would like to buy for my flat.

So today’s obsessions are:

  1. The Alana Collection / MADE.com
