Home Office Reveal!

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...…READ MORE

Master Bedroom Mini Makeover

I first, and last, shared a complete tour of my master bedroom waaaay back in 2010. It was a time when I still ignored the kid’s department in Kmart, thought ‘twitter’ was simply the sound a bird made, could wear a white shirt and keep it clean all day long, and had no idea how...…READ MORE

DIY No Sew Rolled Window Valance

In our newly appointed home office space (which is almost finished and soon to be shared!) there’s a floor to ceiling double sliding windowed door (as briefly blogged about here). The natural light it affords the space is lovely. The blinding summer sun and frosty winter coolness which occasionally penetrates the glass…ummm, not so lovely. This was never an issue...…READ MORE

DIY Fabric Bunting Flags Tutorial

One of my closest friends recently had her second baby – another girl (which, for whatever illogical reason, makes me think I’m going to have another girl too!). Of course with a new baby comes the bestowing of gifts, which is sweet, though does anyone else find it difficult to buy for newborns who already have a...…READ MORE

IKEA Card File Drawers Hack

At the moment, amongst other things, I’m working on a totally new room makeover at my hive. It’s a little space I’ve not shared previously. I can’t wait for the final reveal though with a little pair of hands constantly clutching at my pant legs (with an accompanying unresistable “pick-me-up” whine), let’s just say progress hasn’t...…READ MORE

Industrial Sconce Light Makeover

At the moment I’m helping Mum organise and re-design the little nook (parent’s retreat) off her and Dad’s master bedroom. Whilst the complete room reveal is still a whiles away I wanted to share the finished upgrade of the wall sconces. If you’ve read this blog more than once then you’d probably know I like...…READ MORE

MAGIC Decal Tutorial with Free Printables

  Some of you may remember, a little while back I posted a tutorial for DIY waterslide decals. Among other things, I mentioned how awesome they are for creating custom embellishments without the need for any fancy-pants equipment. Yep, waterslide decal paper is a truly fab product, though as great as it is, there is...…READ MORE

Library Card Cabinet Upcycle

Whada you do when you come across something you really love? Something for your home that you know there is no practical place or use for? Do you buy it just because? Just because you might never come across one again? Just because it was a really good price? Just because your mother’s sister’s second cousin Mavis...…READ MORE
