Welcome to my home.

Entryway Makeover - January 2016

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


Lounge Room Makeover - February 2017

Paint Colour - Dulux Natural White

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.  We painted the walls Dulux Natural White to make the room brighter.

Wall Paint Colour - Dulux Natural White with Dulux Vivid White trim

We took the carpet out and polished the original floor boards prior to moving in. 
 We added a new chandelier light over the table painted the vintage sideboard white.
We painted the dining table and chairs white, and I faux planked the tabletop. 
I recently added the framed botanical wall gallery.

Holly's Pink Bedroom Makeover - March 2016

I also added new bedding, new pink storage baskets, and a new pink rug from Ikea.


Lochie's Blue Bedroom Makeover - March 2016

Wall Paint Colour - Taubmans Joyflight Blue & Dulux Vivid White

In the bathroom, I painted the vanity in Dulux Vivid White Enamel paint and added silver knobs.
I used an aged effect with white chalk paint on the mirror frame.
I also painted the floral wall feature tiles white.
Further, I added a white curtain from Ikea to the shower screen for a bit of privacy.
In the toilet, I added distressed crown moulding and painted the floral feature wall tiles white.
