As the title of this blog post says – hello there! It has been a while since I posted on my own blog. I am still posting a lot over on the Papermilldirect blog, and managing my Mullen Makes Instagram alongside my regular Instagram. Life just got a bit hectic and I needed to simplify, take a moment, step back and take a break. But now, we all seem to have a lot of spare time on our hands, don’t we?
But I saw that I got mentioned in a blog post today, so it inspired me to pick up the digital pen, and write a quick post, by way of thank you. Lee Hall, the brilliant indie writer whose books I have reviewed on here a few times is celebrating a blogging milestone of 500 followers and is doing it by giving others a shout out – how decent a human being is he, eh? He not only writes great books, but he also does very good blog posts too, so head over and check his blog out, and maybe give him a follow while you are there!
In the meantime, I shall endeavor to post with more frequency than Halley’s Comet! I will leave you with an image of a project I completed with some tester pots of paint and a cheap Ikea dresser. This is how I pass time when bored – even before lockdown!

Office makeover continued – This @ikeaie Tarva dresser was perfect for the storage we needed, and we liked that it was solid wood. Combine it with some @craigandrosepaints tester pots of paints (painting the hall is next!), add some gold washi tape accents and it goes from a tad bland to fab! I (Nicole) really went to town on it, and made leather pull handles for it too. The Craig and Rose paints are amazing, no primer needed and the coverage is amazing, consider me a total convert (not sponsored, I wish!!). I had too much fun on this piece and am eying up what I can start masking off and painting next 😆 . . . . #creative #painting #upcycling #paintingfurniture #furniturepainting #ikeaatmine #ikeahacks #tarva #craigandrose #bestpaint #washitape #storage #officerenovation #followyourtrend #converted #mullenmakes #creativity #furniturepainting
