Redecorating our Home - Haul #1

It may be quiet around the blog for a while as we're currently in the midst of redecorating our ENTIRE house before the baby arrives - why did we think this was a good idea at 33 weeks pregnant!?

Anyway, Chris is doing all the DIY jobs and won't let me paint! He says it's 1) 'I don't want you breathing in the paint fumes' pfft! And 2) he thinks that I will mess it up! How dare he!? :P

We've decided on a nautical themed bathroom, red kitchen, green & cream living room, our bedroom will be purple and C's room will be pirate themed. 

We had a bit of an impromptu shopping trip and managed to find some bargains that will tie in with our chosen themes. 

We picked up this gorgeous whale plaque from Next for just £3! I'm not sure on the original price though. 

We bought two of these cushions from Matalan at £6 each (they were originally £10 each). 

Chris chose this photo frame also from Matalan and it was £10 down to £6. 

He also picked out another frame which was an amazing £5 down from £15! A little bit of the glass is broken at the top but that is easily fixed. 

We also recently ordered the two kids beds and bedding and we built those up last night. 

For the new baby we purchased the Mothercare Gliding Crib. This is £99.99 to buy but as I'm such a bargain hunter, I got it when it was on sale a few weeks ago at £74.99. We bought the Mothercare Crib Mattress with Coolmax to go with it. This is £34.99 to buy but I got it on sale at £24.49. The bedding is the Little Lane Crib Bale which is now £39.99 but again, I got it at the bargain price of £28.99 on sale. 

C also got his first ever toddler bed! The bed itself is the Mothercare Darlington Toddler Bed which is originally £69.99 but is now on offer for £55.99. We accompanied it with the Mothercare Foam Mattress (£39.99). His bedding is the Mothercare Jersey Fitted Cotbed Sheets - 2 pack (£13.99), Mothercare Duvet & Pillow Bundle (£16.99), Mothercare Essential Cotbed Pillowcase & Duvet Set (£19.99) and I won a £50 voucher for Lovably Me so that was spent on his cool Pirate Quilt

I'm so excited to get all of the rooms completed but I will be sure to blog my way through it!
