Staging the Flip House!

It's full steam ahead as we race to have everything finished by the end of next week! Oh man, did I just say 'next week'? That's like super soon! I've been scouring second-hand sites like a crazy person and although it's been slow going I've made some progress. Of...

Flip House Interior Plans & Progress

Flip House Interior Plans & Progress

Thank you so much for all the love on my flip house facade reveal! I was a little bit nervous to share (as I usually am before any major post) though I needn't have been. Of course, nothing is for everyone though the overall response was super lovely and positive and...

The Flip House Entry

The Flip House Entry

With the exterior finally nearing completion (yay!), it's time to turn our attention to the flip house interior (double yay!). As much as I've loved transforming the facade, and as exciting as working on my first ever curb appeal makeover has been, I'd be lying if I...

A New Budget-Friendly House Flip!

A New Budget-Friendly House Flip!

It was this time last year when I was in the final stages of readying my gran's house for sale. It was a challenging yet super rewarding project which must have whet my appetite for more because now, almost exactly a year to the day of listing gran's house, I'm...

$100 Kitchen Refresh

$100 Kitchen Refresh

There are two types of room make-over (well, in reality, there are many, many more though for the sake of poetic licence let's just pretend there are two, mkay?). The type you plan for. And then the type which just sorta happens... ...maybe late on a Friday evening......

The New Furniture for the FREE Dining Room!

The New Furniture for the FREE Dining Room!

I've found stuff! This pendant light on eBay for $72... I knew I wanted something modern and gold and somewhat impactful and this seemed to fit the bill. Let's hope it also fits the space! On Gumtree I came across a set of four Windsor style chairs for $40 (listing...

A Plan for the Free Dining Room

A Plan for the Free Dining Room

The furniture is sold! The dining setting fetched $180 and the light went for $20. This gives me a grand total of $200 (I know, don't be too impressed by my amazing math) to overhaul the space. What a nice round figure. In all honestly, I was hoping for a tad more...

The Dining Room is Listed!

The Dining Room is Listed!

There's something exciting about listing old stuff for sale. The anticipation of an offer, the fun of playing "shop", and the prospect of a little windfall. More than anything though is the sense of freedom which comes from purging those extraneous items, and the...

A Dining Room Makeover…for FREE!

A Dining Room Makeover…for FREE!

UPDATE You can now find the finished room HERE. This should be some fun! When my sister mentioned she'd like to makeover her little dining space, in virtually the same breath she dismissed the idea due to a lack of funds. You see, my sister's not really into thrifty...

Gran’s House is SOLD!

Gran’s House is SOLD!

If needed, catch up on things by finding my original post about the house flip HERE. Sorry, I kinda drank all the champagne already. Seriously though, for a rural house which had proved impossible to sell prior to our flip we achieved a great result. It was certainly...
