My Home Tour

Welcome to my home. 

I hope you enjoy the tour!

FRONT PORCH

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

Entryway Makeover - March 2020

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

Lounge Room Makeover - April 2019

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

Rustic Farmhouse Style Dining Room - January 2020

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.


HOME OFFICE

Farmhouse Style Home Office January 2018

Wall Paint Colour - Dulux Limed White Quarter & Dulux Vivid White

DIY White board and batten walls were installed and the room repainted.


MASTER BEDROOM

Rustic Farmhouse Master Bedroom Makeover September 2018

Wall Paint Colour - Dulux Limed White Quarter and Vivid White Board and Baton

When we moved in, we removed the carpet and polished up the original floor boards.
Since then, I have installed extended white board and baton around walls.
I also restyled our chandelier for a more rustic farmhouse look.





HOLLY'S BEDROOM

Holly's Bedroom Makeover - July 2019

Wall Paint Colour - Dulux Limed White Quarter & Dulux Vivid White

For Holly's room we removed the carpet and polished the original floor boards when we first moved in.  A few years later I added the white board and baton around the entire lower half of her room.
We are currently updating her room.

LOCHIE'S BEDROOM

Lochie's Bedroom Makeover - March 2020

Wall Paint Colour - Taubmans Joyflight Blue & Dulux Vivid White

In Lochie's room we also removed the carpet and polished the original floor boards when we first moved in. We built him a loft bed using Ikea chests of drawers and are in the process of updating his room.


BATHROOM and TOILET

Farmhouse Style Bathroom and Toilet Makeovers - March 2020

Vinyl adhesive planks were added to the tiled floor to add warmth and for their aged wood effect. The vanity doors and drawer fronts were replaced with new natural pine. A black shower rail and black hardware was also added. The mirror had a pine makeover and a shelf added. A fabric Ikea curtain was installed rather than a plastic shower curtain to add softness and privacy.


KITCHEN

Kitchen Makeover - October 2016

Wall Paint Colour - Dulux Natural White
Cabinet Paint Colour - British Paints H2O Enamel in White

All cabinets were detailed with board and batten, skirting boards were added, the benches were repainted, and the drawer and door hardware updated.

New vinyl plank tiles were added to cover the ceramic orange tiles and curtains hung to cover the door and window, both adding warmth and light. Wood offcuts were added to cover the wall taps and the sink adding natural textures and tones. And greenery to bring in nature.
