More Progress at the Flip House

Needless to say I didn’t meet the “end of next week” deadline. Still, things are on track to be completed super soon! Of course, I’ve only been sharing little snippets here and there, as I haven’t had the time to compile any full-on blog posts yet (plus I don’t want to give too much away!),...…READ MORE

Creating a Fourth Bedroom at the Flip House

I touched briefly on this project a few posts back however thought it deserved a bit more of the limelight. As many of you will know, the flip house originally had three bedrooms and one study. The study couldn’t be classified as a bedroom because it was an “open” room with no dedicated door. Of...…READ MORE

Staging the Flip House!

It’s full steam ahead as we race to have everything finished by the end of next week! Oh man, did I just say ‘next week’? That’s like super soon! I’ve been scouring second-hand sites like a crazy person and although it’s been slow going I’ve made some progress. Of course, the problem with being on...…READ MORE

Flip House Interior Plans & Progress

Thank you so much for all the love on my flip house facade reveal! I was a little bit nervous to share (as I usually am before any major post) though I needn’t have been. Of course, nothing is for everyone though the overall response was super lovely and positive and I’m incredibly grateful. Now,...…READ MORE

The Flip House Entry

With the exterior finally nearing completion (yay!), it’s time to turn our attention to the flip house interior (double yay!). As much as I’ve loved transforming the facade, and as exciting as working on my first ever curb appeal makeover has been, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t looking forward to getting cracking...…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
