DIY Repurposed Basket Ceiling Light

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)...

Budget Living Room Makeover

Budget Living Room Makeover

Recently, I took up the creative challenge to help my Mum make-over her sitting room on a non-existent (and I mean 'zero dollar') budget. Course we did have a little more than zero dollars though we just wanted to see what we could come up with. Here's the space...

Refurbished Dining Setting

Refurbished Dining Setting

Whilst not necessarily in-keeping with my usual style I knew this was a special find. A stunning 13 piece vintage Drexel dining setting comprising a table with three optional leaves, two carvers and ten standard dining chairs! The enormity and repetition involved in...

Distressed Coffee Table

Distressed Coffee Table

Update: Check out my complete distressed coffee table tutorial here. I'll be the first to admit I've been a very, very bad blogger of late (tist, tist to me). And whilst I wouldn't be surprised if due to my month long hiatus there's no-one still around here to...

Enhanced Natural Timber Furniture

Distressed White Cabinet

Distressed White Cabinet

Remember this little cabinet from my bedroom reveal? I reckon this early 1900's cupboard was originally some kind of kitchen dry store or food safe though I picked it up for $60 off eBay knowing it would be a perfect new house for all our shoes. This was the simplest...

Chalky Washed Armoire

Chalky Washed Armoire

Thanks so much for all the lovely comments about my bedroom revamp. One of the most mentioned and asked about items was the armoire. Well, 'armoire' is perhaps a tad too fancy, it's just a plain free-standing robe really. It was funny to read all the different...

The Painted Hive Master Bedroom

The Painted Hive Master Bedroom

Update: Check out how my bedroom has evolved! View more recent posts here. Some interesting wall angles and the need for tonnes of storage really dictated the design for our master bedroom. Function and budget were high priorities so I decided to work 'pretty' around...

Tea Cart Sheet Music Revamp

Tea Cart Sheet Music Revamp

Although I must admit I don't actually have any tea trolleys in my home (hmmm, that might need to change) I do just love them. So when I spied this little guy on the curb I knew he'd be coming straight home with me. I gotta say that he did kinda just sit around for a...
