Aldi cushion covers (vintage floral & butterfly) £5.99 each
Crikey it's been a fair while since I wrote on here. A mixture of summer sun, camping with the girls, nights of cocktail recklessness and getting the house looking a bit more homely has taken up a lot of my free time recently, not bad excuses are they?
In case you don't remember, I promised a post every Sunday featuring one interior bargain I'm mad about to give you inspiration to pimp out your house without breaking the bank. And here we are again (about 20 Sunday's later!).
Raiding supermarkets is probably one of the most effective ways to pick up interior gems that look the part but cost so much less than designer items. We all know my love for Aldi's grub (seriously, you can do a whole weekly shop for half the price in there, what's not to love?) so when I heard they had a new home range - and VINTAGE at that - I absolutely pounced.
Available across Aldi stores from the 31st July, these cushion covers are a delightful country-bumpkin addition to my new sofa.
They're surprisingly good quality too. Usually if you opt for cheap vintage looks you compromise on the material and the pattern can be a bit off, but these cushions are heavy, tapestry-eque covers. Wow my vocabulary is on form today.
They're kinda passable as being hand sewed. As long as you don't turn them over. The opposite side is plain cream which loses points for me, but still a bloomin' good bargain.
High five to Aldi for expanding upon their 'odds and sods' section they have at back of every store. I usually by pass all the plants, crocs, power hoses and other miscellaneous bargain-age and skip straight to the crisps but from now on I'll be having a right old rummage for more interior finds.
Until next week!
