Progress in My Little Boy’s Room | A Landscape Gallery, Bedding & More!

Now that things have finally settled down (in case you missed it I’d been helping my gran prepare her house for sale), it’s time to get back into some decorating for my own home! Starting with my little boy’s half-finished bedroom. If you’ve been following along with the makeover you’ll know that… The walls got...…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

From Modern to Farmhouse | A File Cabinet Hack

For the past four or so years, all of Charlotte’s craft supplies have lived in a big plastic tub on the top shelf in her wardrobe. Aside from the fact her room has limited storage space which means we can’t be too picky about where things are housed, they were stowed away somewhat out of...…READ MORE

Easy DIY Ruler Drawer Pulls

I’ve been meaning to add handles to Charlotte’s under-bed toy boxes for a while now. At first I was going to use some simple metal pulls. Though that seemed a little bit boring. Then I was going to DIY some leather strap handles. Though that felt a tad too mature. Then I was going to...…READ MORE
