The Suite Extension Bathroom Reveal!

It may have been a long time coming but the bathroom reveal is finally here! Just to recap, and for anyone new to my blog, this bathroom is part of an upper level suite extension at my parent’s house. So, in a departure from my usual “make the most” style of decorating – where I...…READ MORE

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!). With everyone being stuck at home, and thanks to a streak of perfect painting weather, my parents abruptly decided it was time to “render”...…READ MORE

Installing the Suite Extension Flooring

What better thing to do when stuck at home than have a go at laying your very own floor. I mean, what a fun little isolation project to get stuck into? Right? And surely not difficult at all? Right? In all honestly, we decided on the suite extension flooring quite a while back (Arbre Engineered...…READ MORE

DIY Stair Newel Post Update

I touched on this project a few posts back though wanted to re-visit it because now it’s totally done! And looking pretty schmick! If I do say so myself :) If you caught the past post, I shared how this newel-post-meets-half-wall was left in a bit of a mess after my parent’s builders made some...…READ MORE

Suite Extension Progress

If you follow me socially (via Instagram, Facebook or through my Facebook Group) you may have seen some progress snippets over the past few weeks.

Easy Kmart Stool Hack

Why, hello there! Remember me? I’m sorry I’ve been so absent. Things have been busy, just not in a super productive way. With summer holidays comes lots of family time which means completing projects and writing blog posts isn’t always a priority, or sometimes even a possibility. Still, I have quite a bit of suite...…READ MORE

Suite Extension Update

I know it’s almost Christmas and everyone has better things to do than catch-up on other people’s house progress, but I really wanted to share this quick update on the suite extension. Our original plan was to have the build aspect entirely complete and signed-off (with official Certificate of Occupancy) prior to Christmas, and whilst...…READ MORE

Wallpaper for the Bathroom

If you caught my last suite extension update, you might recall reading that I was in wallpaper town trying to decided on something for the bathroom. As mentioned early on, my parents like simple classic interiors which can stand the test of time, so injecting a bit of whimsy and interest through changeable elements (such...…READ MORE

Suite Extension Happenings

Things are flying along at the suite extension at the moment! I think it’s partly because we’re just at that stage where things seem to go quickly, though also partly because the builder is keen to have everything done and dusted well before Christmas. In terms of progress, the tiles have all been laid and...…READ MORE

Bathroom Vanity Decisions & Extension Progress

If you caught my last post, you may have read that a “custom” bathroom vanity was included in the extension build contract, so we assumed we could request pretty much whatever we liked (within reason of course). My initial plan was to go with solid timber, so we could then choose to stain or paint...…READ MORE
