This is part two in a three post series covering the transformation of bi-folds into barn doors. You can read the first post here. When I was hunting down inspiration for the transformation of Charlotte’s bi-fold doors, I came across an old photo on a woodworking forum of some interior doors with decorative head trim. ....Continue reading….
I’ve coveted barn style doors for almost as long as I can remember. Something about their exposed hardware, diagonal trim and gracious nod to yesteryear just gets me. A few years back I tried quelling my desire for them with a simple barn door-esque update of my built-in master bedroom wardrobe… …though still my craving lingered. So, ....Continue reading….
I have about a zillion project ideas whirring around in my brain at the mo’, though for now I’m still sloooowly grinding through my ‘To Do’ list for Charlotte’s bedroom. My most recently crossed-off project being this cute little table… I should probably mention that the ‘after’ shots were not actually taken in Charlotte’s room ....Continue reading….
As mentioned in my last post, I’m trying to capitalise on the modest proportions of Charlotte’s new little bedroom by making use of as much space as possible. This includes taking advantage of the often forgotten area behind the door. One of the first elements I envisaged for her room was a series of simple ....Continue reading….
Every now and again, I get a question from a reader asking why I haven’t yet shared photos of my kitchen, bathroom and laundry. My usual response is generally along the lines of “because they’re pretty darn crappy”. Yep, I know it might seem hard to believe, though all of our ‘wet’ areas still remain ....Continue reading….
I know what you’re thinking. “Home tour? What the? I already feel like I basically live in portions of your house I’ve seen that many self-gratifying photos of it”. Yeah, I know. Sorry ’bout that. Though in my defence our little house is kinda the heartbeat of this here blog :-) And I think some of you ....Continue reading….
As promised, here is the reveal of my transformed home office space! It’s nothing spectacular, and there’ll probably be some future tweaking, though for now I’m calling it done! Oh, and if you missed the awards ceremony, don’t worry, you can congratulate me later. Huh, what’s that? You didn’t hear? Well, I broke the world ....Continue reading….
When I first became a Mum (almost two whole years ago now – yikes!) I felt the need to share with my readers my intentions regarding my blog, so I mentioned that whilst it was always my ambition to continue blogging (’cause I LOVE it!), family would inevitably be my top priority, so posts might ....Continue reading….
Something slip-covered, something leather or something with loose cushions. Something timeless, something with a little pop and something kinda statement-y. This was my loose criteria when deciding on a new chair for our home office space. You see, our home office space is just that; a space. It’s in a prominent and highly trafficked area just off ....Continue reading….
So, I know the post title is kinda an oxymoron though it actually does make some sense. You see, there are elements of both ‘actual’ and ‘artificial’ in my experimental process. Anyhoo, read on to see what the heck I’m on about… With a new baby due in (gulp!) just four weeks time (when did ....Continue reading….
