Change Table – Before and After

Another tick off the “to-do list” today. The nursery change table, also given to us by neighbours, is ready to go. Time to remove the last remnants of our home office out to make room for this new piece. I guess I’d better get on a change pad too! Here’s a look at the before… […]

DIY Birch Tree Wall Mural

In the continuing effort to attempt a nursery, I was searching through my many inspirational web saves, jpg’s and clippings… and was reminded of this wonderful gem originally posted on Design Sponge last year. When I first saw Jen’s Bedroom makeover, I immediately wanted to put birch trees in my home somewhere, anywhere! Finally, the time had […]

Living Room Fireplace Makeover

Hallelujah! The Living Room Fireplace Makeover is complete! You may remember some of the work we’ve been up to in recent weeks. I’m so pleased to add that we couldn’t be happier with the results. It’s surprising what you can accomplish with a little imagination, and a lot of good old fashioned DIY handy-work. Here is […]

Fresh Tease – Living Room Reno

At long last, it’s time to share what we’ve been up to in that living room of ours! This was a big one for us. As I mentioned in our laundry reno, we wanted all our components out of the Living Room (ie: receiver, dvd player, sat box). This is what sparked the laundry room […]

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. Great colour. But there was no plan and the room ended up being this mish-mash of colours, & objects […]

Before & After: Buffet Cabinet

Ooooh this is an oldie, but we turned her into a goodie. This little gem was hiding under my stairs, possibly ashamed of its paint job from days gone past… but we turned that around! New paint, hardware, glass inserts, added moulding and lots (LOTS) of elbow grease, has her standing proud, front and centre, […]

Before & After: Flower Chair

This little beauty was destined for the landfill. We plucked it from the curb and brought her home. A little love, attention, (and elbow grease), and she’s good as new. Couldn’t be happier with the results here. What do you think? Like this post? Sign up for fresh content, and free printables!
