Is it too ambitious of me to hope there’s actually someone loyal enough they’re still around to read this post? I’m now nicely settled back in at home with beautiful baby Charlotte and between putting milk in one end and cleaning it up out of the other (plus spending way too long just gazing in wonder) I have ....Continue reading….
Don’t get me wrong, I love the fact I get to call Australia home, though a word of warning to anyone thinking of moving here (particularly if you’re a home DIY-aholic accustomed to a seemingly endless array of affordable and easily attainable supplies). Sure, we might have lovely weather (most of the time), beautiful beaches (almost exclusively) and kangaroos ....Continue reading….
I know repurposed light shades aren’t exactly a new idea though I did kinda just make this one up as I went along. I really wanted a hanging pendant in the nursery though the ceiling is just too low so I instead opted to transform a standard batten fix (flush mount) light.

Update: Check out my complete distressed coffee table tutorial here. I’ll be the first to admit I’ve been a very, very bad blogger of late (tist, tist to me). And whilst I wouldn’t be surprised if due to my month long hiatus there’s no-one still around here to actually be reading this right now, just ....Continue reading….
Firstly, thanks so much to everyone for all the baby well wishes – you guys are just too sweet :-) Now, on to some decorating stuff!!!

Thanks so much for all the lovely comments about my bedroom revamp. One of the most mentioned and asked about items was the armoire. Well, ‘armoire’ is perhaps a tad too fancy, it’s just a plain free-standing robe really. It was funny to read all the different comments eluding to its colour. Most of you thought it ....Continue reading….
So, while my bedroom makeover drags on and on at least I can share some insightful snippets of the journey thus far to (hopefully) keep you keen. I know a lot of you have been hanging out to know how I was going to create a massive wall map on a budget – cause, dang, those things ....Continue reading….
If you’ve read this blog more than just once you probably know I have a bit of a thing for using natural elements to decorate my home, and for a budget-savvy gal like me, there’s no better way of introducing this textural earthiness to a space than via a great-outdoors scavenger hunt. So, until money grows on trees, I’m taking my ....Continue reading….
Firstly, thanks so much to everyone for the lovely comments about my map cabinet makeover. I was seriously surprised and overwhelmed – you guys are just the best. There was a lot of interest in the compass knobs I created and some of you wanted to see a more in-depth tutorial on how to make them, so here ....Continue reading….
I found this cute little cupboard in the gutter. Needless to say within a few minutes it had magically teleported itself to the back of my car. I knew that with a little love someone would eventually prefer this little guy inside their home so got to work painting the body in rich ebony before distressing and sealing ....Continue reading….
