Flip House Facade | The Plan & Progress

I must admit, from the start it’s been the ‘street appeal’ transformation which has had me most excited about this house. I haven’t had the chance to work on many (any!) full facades so it’s something I’ve always been super keen to tackle. Whilst the original state of things was clearly far from spectacular, I...…READ MORE

A New Budget-Friendly House Flip!

It was this time last year when I was in the final stages of readying my gran’s house for sale. It was a challenging yet super rewarding project which must have whet my appetite for more because now, almost exactly a year to the day of listing gran’s house, I’m excited to reveal there’s a...…READ MORE

$100 Kitchen Refresh

There are two types of room make-over (well, in reality, there are many, many more though for the sake of poetic licence let’s just pretend there are two, mkay?). The type you plan for. And then the type which just sorta happens… …maybe late on a Friday evening… …after two (or more) glasses of wine…...…READ MORE

The New Furniture for the FREE Dining Room!

I’ve found stuff! This pendant light on eBay for $72… I knew I wanted something modern and gold and somewhat impactful and this seemed to fit the bill. Let’s hope it also fits the space! On Gumtree I came across a set of four Windsor style chairs for $40 (listing states $50 however the price was...…READ MORE

A Plan for the Free Dining Room

The furniture is sold! The dining setting fetched $180 and the light went for $20. This gives me a grand total of $200 (I know, don’t be too impressed by my amazing math) to overhaul the space. What a nice round figure. In all honestly, I was hoping for a tad more though this will...…READ MORE

The Dining Room is Listed!

There’s something exciting about listing old stuff for sale. The anticipation of an offer, the fun of playing “shop”, and the prospect of a little windfall. More than anything though is the sense of freedom which comes from purging those extraneous items, and the ensuing promise of a fresh start – for both yourself and...…READ MORE

A Dining Room Makeover…for FREE!

UPDATE You can now find the finished room HERE. This should be some fun! When my sister mentioned she’d like to makeover her little dining space, in virtually the same breath she dismissed the idea due to a lack of funds. You see, my sister’s not really into thrifty decorating, and having a non-existent budget...…READ MORE

Gran’s House is SOLD!

If needed, catch up on things by finding my original post about the house flip HERE. Sorry, I kinda drank all the champagne already. Seriously though, for a rural house which had proved impossible to sell prior to our flip we achieved a great result. It was certainly bubbles-worthy. We received several offers (the first...…READ MORE

Best of 2017 & Gratitude

I don’t usually do these ’round-up’ kinda posts, though given we’re already into the second week of January and I still had a Christmas-themed project at the top of my blog I thought I’d better publish something new. To be honest, the idea of looking back through my archives was a little daunting. I was...…READ MORE

Charlotte’s Bedroom Makeover | Product Sources

Hi there. Remember me? Sorry I kinda disappeared for a little while there. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – at times I can be a bad, bad blogger. I’d love to have a really great excuse, though in reality I can only blame lethargy…and laundry…and life. Anyhoo, I’m back, and as...…READ MORE
