The BEFORE. This bedroom is blah. The ceiling light fixture, the feature – or should I say non existent feature wall, the tired side tables and lights. Blase’ at best. I really, really love the wallpapers that look a bit like colour is bleeding on the wall, sometimes with the colour dark and intense washing… Continue reading Ikea Hack Extraordinaire
Here’s a little reminder of how the kitchen looked when we moved in. Note in the first picture there is an upper cabinet beside the window. To the left of it, above the fridge is another, shorter cabinet, slightly useless since it’s so far back. You know the type, you may even own one yourself.… Continue reading Big Beautiful Backsplash

Of course, I do my best thinking when I should be sleeping, and it was on one of those nights that I… Continue reading Black walls – Trending – And I’m all IN!
Is this not one of the coolest art installations ever?? I saw this in a coffee shop months ago and just had to take a picture. I stored the idea in my little brain and thought about it now and then and how I could do the same thing on a smaller scale in my… Continue reading Did Somebody say CAKE??
To put a brand spankin’ new WHITE spotted Ikea rug at the front door! Yes, the rug is indoor-outdoor worthy, yes, it cleans up pretty well, yes it hardly cost a thing…but those white spots still didn’t stand a chance of staying white. If you need it, here’s proof that walking in and out all… Continue reading Seriously, What Was I Thinking?
The technique of Board and Batten has been covered by many, and here are pictures of my foray down the B and B lane.
