Kerb Appeal

This weekend we undertook our first mini-renovation of the year. The front door was something that I did not dislike or wasn't completely against my taste, so it was fairly off the radar in terms of my priority list of jobs to do. However, after a few incidents of Honey destroying post and delivery slips… Continue reading Kerb Appeal

Bedroom Refresh Ideas

So, I'm starting the new year right by coming up with a new design for the next room I want to redecorate, even though it was only decorated less than 2 years ago, naturally.  I know, I sound crazy!

Transformation Thursday #3 – The Snug

So, I… Continue reading Transformation Thursday #3 – The Snug

DIY Window Seat

Last week I was finally able to post a tour of our bedroom, I say finally because there was still one element of our room which was incomplete and really irritated me, so I delayed showing it on here until it was done. From the title of this post you can probably guess what it… Continue reading DIY Window Seat

Garden Spruce-up

A month or two ago, with the world renowned British summer imminent, we decided that the garden was in need of a bit of a spruce up. With our house being a Victorian Terrace, a large garden was never going to be very realistic, however the garden size we have is perfect for us. Enough… Continue reading Garden Spruce-up
