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...

DIY Transfer Decal Tutorial

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...

The Industrial Dining Room Light

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...

Time Management and New Ticking Sheets

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...

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 covers...

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)...

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...

Firstly, thanks so much to everyone for all the baby well wishes - you guys are just too sweet :-) Now, on to some decorating stuff!!! I wanted to finally share the little face-lift I gave my master bedroom built-in robe. Remember how a little while ago I put out an...
