Before and After: Slip Cover

With a floorplan like this, you can’t re-vamp one area without it spilling out into the rest of the room. In the on-going attempts to get the home gym in order, this sofa is the first “victim” to conform to the new plan. Sorry little guy, colour palette is changing… time to get with the […]

Before & After: Master Bedroom

We all know its the most neglected room in the house right? Yep, been there, done that. Enough already! Time to get this show on the road! So we painted it originally with this goldish-green colour.
