My Home Tour

Welcome to my home. 

I hope you enjoy the tour!

FRONT PORCH


BEFORE:


AFTER:

March 2018

The main changes to the front verandah are the posts which were black and are now white.   

I've also added a new door mat, a fragrant Ginger Cardamon plant, Ikea lanterns, a wooden bench seat and Ikea check cushions.


ENTRYWAY

BEFORE:


AFTER:

Entryway Makeover - October 2018

Wall Paint Colours - Dulux Limed White Quarter and Vivid White


This was once a very plain entryway.  
I've since added gorgeous white board and batten walls with a Dulux Limed White Quarter accent.




LOUNGE ROOM

BEFORE:
 


AFTER:

Lounge Room Makeover - November 2017

Paint Colours - Dulux Natural White walls and Vivid White trim.

This would have to be my favourite room in the house.  
When we moved in we had the carpet removed and the original floorboards polished.
The Plantation Shutters were a huge selling point when we bought the house.  They let in so much light and look divine.  I added wainscotting to the walls and painted the top half in Dulux Natural White. And I sanded back our french doors to their natural wood.

We also installed a free standing fireplace. We made the hearth ourselves (which I'm very proud of), and I made the faux wall mantel and surround behind it.


DINING ROOM

BEFORE:



AFTER:

Rustic Farmhouse Style Dining Room - February 2018

Wall Paint Colour - Dulux Natural White and Vivid White trim.

We took the carpet out and polished the original floor boards prior to moving in. 
 We added a new chandelier which I painted black and wrapped with jute twine.
We painted the dining table chairs white.  I made the large interchangeable Cafe sign. 
 And added wainscotting to the walls, then painted the top half in Dulux Natural White.
We also added an internal door leading into the garage.
