Welcome to corner by cornerMe. My husband. Three small girls. A house needing lots of attention. No money to spend on it. No free time to speak of. No discernible DIY skills. An addiction to home improvement magazines and dribbling over expensive homeware. More ideas than I have time to describe.

Join me on my quest to make my home look lovelier. Bit by bit. Corner by corner.

Time for a little playhouse update? Yes- I think so. You may remember that I shared some grand plans for the playhouse a while back. Have those plans been realised? Hell – no. Not in any way. I do have … Continue reading
