A Sneak Peak instead of Tuesday's Farmhouse Fancy

Sorry lovelies but I'm giving this week's "Tuesday's Farmhouse Fancy" a miss this week. 

After the huge job or redoing the lounge room French doors, I've dove straight into another huge DIY project and honestly I'm exhausted. 

I can't wait to show you what I've been working on. I can tell you it involves a full room makeover incorporating new tiles and crown moulding. 

So instead of today's usual post, I'll leave you with a sneak peak of what I'm working on, complete with one inquisitive fluffy kitten.

Farmhouse Weathered French Doors


You may remember how I painted our lounge room french doors a few years back from woodgrain to white.

I liked the white, but they were always chipping here and there and I had already repainted them once, and then Pinterest started calling me and saying why not go for a weathered wood look. Damn that Pinterest.

Kids Hanging School Planner & Organiser


Usually when the kids come home from school their school bags are dumped by the door in a messy pile. We are forever searching bedrooms for library and homework bags. And their weekly planner is in the kitchen on the fridge. 

I wanted to keep them all organised neatly in one place. So I made them hanging planners/organisers.

TV Cabinet Chicken Wire Cut Outs



We have had this TV cabinet entertainment unit for years. We bought it new in a dark timber stain, then painted the bottom half white.

Here is how you might remember it ...


The only problem was our Play Station was getting overheated as there was not enough air circulation in the cabinet.  So the front sliding door was always left open. It looked messy and always annoyed me.

Wednesday's Projects Past - Numbered Grey and White Dresser


Would you believe the above dresser once looked like this ...


It was a roadside rescue that took me a long and embarrassing time to load.  I had to pull out 2 car seats and a pram and find extra muscles to heave it in the car. 

It was nasty on the outside. Dirty with lots of old stickers. But the shape was beautiful and the drawers were all clean and in good working order so I could see the potential.
