DIY Shutters for the Suite Extension House

If you’re anything like me, then you probably consume quite a bit of design and decoration content online, either through social media, blogs or other websites. And, like me, in your time you may have come across the odd article or two about exterior shutters and their supposed “right and wrongs” (perhaps with a heated...…READ MORE

DIY Pergola-Style Balcony Millwork

Firstly, thanks so much for all the love on the bathroom reveal post! You guys are just the best.

Painting the Suite Extension House Exterior

You were probably expecting to see the suite extension bathroom reveal this week, but sorry, something unexpected happened I needed to share first (the bathroom will be coming up super soon!).

Easy Upcycled Terracotta Herb Pots

I don’t do a lot of crafts, though every now and again I get a hankering for an easy little project.

And after just a few...…READ MORE

More Progress on the Flip House Facade!

You know how on home renovation shows they can completely transform an entire house in just five days? Yeah, well, this in’t a home renovation show. Clearly. We’ve been grinding away at just the facade for over a month now and the finishing line is finally coming into view! I know it’s not the fast-paced,...…READ MORE

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

Quick & Easy Spray Paint Update

It’s not always easy to see the potential in things. Take this incongruous collection of second-hand planters I was gifted… At first glance it’s not the most attractive assembly of items, is it? I mean, if you were looking to create a pretty co-ordinated cluster of pots, this renegade group wouldn’t even turn your head,...…READ MORE
