Sliding Wardrobe Door Update

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you probably remember this simple robe door makeover from about a year ago…. When I re-decorated my master bedroom, I simply painted the ugly beige metal surround with enamel spray paint to create a more cohesive (i.e. less ugly) look. I thought some readers, who may be entertaining...…READ MORE

Fern Study Prints with Free Printables!

Do you ‘member I mentioned there had been lots of tissy-ing up going on over at my hive? Well, something I had been wanting to change for a while were the bird prints in my living room. Above is my living room as it was around 18 months ago. They are cute and I do like...…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

DIY Transfer Decal Tutorial

Sure, there are a heap of different embellishing methods out there though did you know you can make your own custom, professional-looking, easy to use decals at home with no expensive outlays, time-consuming crafting or specialty equipment? All you need is some waterslide decal paper and a printer (plus a cute design of course!). Waterslide decal paper comes...…READ MORE

The Industrial Dining Room Light

After I blogged about my mini dining room update I got a lot of questions about the light fixture so thought I’d dedicate a little post to it. I’d been inactively looking to replace both the original fixtures in my conjoined living-dining room since we moved in. Yep, that was them. Except they were originally green...…READ MORE

Time Management and New Ticking Sheets

Check out pics of my updated bedroom here. I pretty much never publish posts like this (with potentially boring ‘real life stuff’). I know many of you visit purely for decorating inspiration, so if you’re simply interested in seeing some pretty pictures then scroll straight to the bottom where you can read more about this…. Anyhoo, in non-decorating related news,...…READ MORE

Tolix Chairs for the Dining Room!

Have I mentioned my complex? The one about buying furniture brand new? Seriously, I mean complex. The whole concept is just an enigma to me. Don’t get me wrong though, I know second-hand is not always the best way to go though if I happen to spy you buying something so generic they sell one every five seconds on eBay for just fifty...…READ MORE

The Nursery Reveal!

Before Charlotte actually out-grows her cot I thought I’d better finish off her room! Well, for that reason and also cause it’s about time I finally shared it on my blog! Of course it would have been completed four months ago, before she actually arrived in the world, if it hadn’t been for my pesky eight week...…READ MORE

Rocking Chair for the Nursery

I have a confession to make; I’m not really much of a sewer. There, I’ve said it, and the truth is, I don’t even own a machine! I mean, I can do basic straight lines – like pillows and the like (as you may have seen in previous posts) – though ask me about slip...…READ MORE

DIY Repurposed Basket Ceiling Light

I know repurposed light shades aren’t exactly a new idea though I did kinda just make this one up as I went along. I really wanted a hanging pendant in the nursery though the ceiling is just too low so I instead opted to transform a standard batten fix (flush mount) light. I started with this cool...…READ MORE
