Hello again to my poor little neglected blog! I can’t believe that it’s been so long since my last post, but the last few weeks have really flown by.
The main reason for my recent absence is our new home! We moved in at the end of April, so our lives have been a flurry of planning, drilling, and bonding with our local hardware store. To be honest, it has been quite nice to take a break from the blog for a little while, to take time to focus on setting up our new space, and to become re-inspired. I have some fun projects lined up to share with you, so stay tuned!
Anyone who has bought a new home will be quick to tell you that your time, energy and money will disappear very rapidly! We’ve bought a lovely older home that needs some aesthetic work, but I’m really looking forward to the process. It’s such an incredible blessing to be able to buy our own home, so I’m trying to not focus on all the negatives! That being said, here are a couple of things that I’ve been itching to do…
The main bedroom had a cheap glass light fitting that is usually used in bathrooms, so I couldn’t wait to update it. I chose a more contemporary white pendant light from Eagle Lighting, and it has made such a difference to the space.
Our bathroom has a pretty awful pink and white striped tile (I know, it could be a lot worse), which is quite outdated. We can’t afford to completely revamp the bathroom just yet, so I’m planning on painting the tile in the meantime. There are a couple of new tile primers on the market, so I’m looking forward to giving one of these a try.
Likewise, the cupboards in the main bedroom are a pretty nasty shade of beige, with chocolate brown trimmings. I’m also planning on giving these a makeover with a lick of paint, and I can’t wait to see the results.
Stay posted for more updates on our DIY projects!
