Over the xmas break, I delight myself in taking on a challenge. Last year, it was painting our study, this year it was revamping our bookshelves. With painting, I always think you need a few solid days to really get to grips with it. Plus its one DIY job that makes such a difference but only really costs £20-£30.

I am in love with Farrow & Ball's paints, they look so chic and have great coverage.However, a top frugal tip: take the match card to your local paint shop and get them to make up the colour for you with their own paint to save money!
I love the new dramatic look it gives to the shelves, plus it gave me a chance to re-organise and recycle loads of books. It feels like a different room, now.
