Make It Yours – Meet the Bloggers

First up, a behemoth thank you for all your sweet comments and messages on our little announcement last Friday. All the feelings were and are happening all up in here (on top of a healthy dose of hormones = mini sob-fest! :P) xx 

This month I’m featured in an exciting mini magazine by Rust-Oleum included with the May edition of Your Home magazine; their Make It Yours mag all about fixer uppers and the people behind them. Yours truly is featured in the Meet the Bloggers section along with details on our basic secondhand bedside tables which I gave a faux marble makeover late last year.

It’s been 5 months since I updated our bedside tables and they’re looking as good as the day I painted them. I’ve repainted a number of pieces of furniture in our apartment to date using a variety of brands, and honestly our bedside tables have held up the best. Better than that actually as they’re still in perfect condition despite our level of wear and tear. I don’t feel obliged to say this because of the nature of this blog post; this is my honest opinion. I genuinely wouldn’t say it otherwise. I find their furniture paint exceptional and as I still have a bit of paint left over, I’ll be updating another piece soon.

You can find the Make It Yours mini mag along with the Your Home magazine on shelves in Ireland and the UK [and possibly elsewhere?] from now! And thank you again Rust-Oleum for featuring me 🙂

      Thank you so much Pat ^____^ We're both so excited and can't believe we'll meet our little bun in just over 5 months. Crazy stuff.

    Hi Alex, where did you get the satin finish Rustoleum paint please? Can only find chalky finish in my local Woodies. Like the idea of not having to wax or varnish over. Thank, hope you are feeling well ☺

      It was actually sent to me, but I'll get in contact with Rust-Oleum and find out exactly where they stock their satin finish paint!

      p.s. Where abouts are you based? So I can see if I can give you specific details 🙂

      I just heard back from Rust-Oleum this morning and they said they don't stock it in Dublin just yet. It was suggested the safest bet would for you to order it through your local B&Q. I've found them quite helpful so fingers crossed they can order some in for you! Do let me know how you get on regardless. I hope that helps! x
