Vintage-Style Mini Drawer Hack with Latch Handles

I hope you all had a lovely time over Christmas and New Year! Our days were filled with rollicking children, too much food, lazy mornings, too much champagne, and lots of laughter with friends and family. Getting back into the swing of things today by posting details of this simple IKEA hack I recently shared...…READ MORE

Boy’s Tiny Lodge Style Bedroom Reveal!

I never thought I’d be able to create another kid’s space I’d love quite so much as my daughter’s bedroom…but I may have done just that. In fact, I might even love it more! From the start I was excited about the rustic-earthy-vintage-collected-lodgey feel I was hoping to encompass in this space. I love moody...…READ MORE

A Simple Desk Makeover

You know that old saying, “Too much of a good thing is never a good thing.” Well, aside from the fact they forgot to exclude wine…and pistachios…and Friday nights, it’s pretty sound advice, and perfectly apt in the case of this cute little desk. As good as its original pine finish was, when teamed with...…READ MORE

Easy DIY Cross Base Table Tutorial

It’s finally done! Sorry it has taken me soooooo long. I’d like to say it’s because I was super busy, though the truth is, it’s because I was totally procrastinating over writing this tutorial due to the fact I knew it was going to be a beast! Not that making the table itself is a...…READ MORE

My First (decent) Christmas Tree!

I’ve never had a decent Christmas tree. The year we moved into our first home, we didn’t have one at all. The following year we bought the cheapest, nastiest faux tree from the supermarket…for $12…the night before Christmas. Needless to say, it wasn’t the finest of specimens. A few years later we ‘upgraded’ to another...…READ MORE

A “New” Vintage Desk & Swivel Chair

So, I know it’s basically December and publishing a post without any hint of pine needles or flocked snow is seemingly akin to impudence, though let’s be rebels! Over the past few weeks I’ve been chipping away at Riley’s bedroom re-do, with the most recently completed project being his new desk. A month or so...…READ MORE

DIY Book Holders Repurposed from Drawer Organisers

Around the same time I was designing the floating bookshelves for behind Charlotte’s bedroom door, I happened to notice some drawer tidies in Kmart. “You know what?” I remarked to my mum, who was shopping with me that day, “These would be good re-purposed as little bookshelves.” It’s funny how you think when you’re in...…READ MORE

My Little Boy’s Room | Part 2 (the paint!)

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…the difference some paint can make is amazing! Excuse the (slightly disturbing) chalk art! Usually I rely on the transformative power of neutrals, with their ability to freshen any space and create a nice, blank canvas. However, I’ve reversed things this time around, stepping way outside my...…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
