THE WET ROOM | THIS LITTLE HOUSE

Hello my lovelies,

We are almost at the stage of the house renovation where we will have to take a step back and let the professionals in to do their thing.

We are pretty capable when it comes to the basic house renovation things, but plastering and major tiling projects are out of our remit.

HANDY SHELF | THIS LITTLE HOUSE


Hello my lovelies,

I’ve added a handy little shelf to the outside lavatory where we can store toilet roll, room spray and the like and I thought I’d share it with you.

We didn’t want to add a toilet roll holder or anything to the room as its only a single skin block wall with lathe and boards on the inside, so it may at times have some damp in the air – and I don’t want mushy toilet roll!

IT’S GETTING THERE | THIS LITTLE HOUSE

IMG_8020

We’ve been working on the new house since November – staying with my parents while we get the big stuff done – and we are starting to see some light at the end of the tunnel…

While all the thingsΒ we have been doing between the two of us could easily have been done super quick if we had the money to get a tonne ofΒ professionals in, we aren’t in a position to do that, we have to pick and choose what we can and can’t do ourselves, which is why everything is taking so long.

House Update | Onwards and Upwards…

Hello my lovelies,

Well we’ve finally done it… the house is as complete as we can make it and we’ve decided to move on to another project, so this week we went ahead and put it up for sale.

It was a BIG decision, trust me on that, but although we love this little house and we have loved spending these past two years renovating and decorating it, it is time for us to move on to pastures new. We live in a pretty rural, costal village and we like the general area so we won’t be moving too far, but having lived in and renovated our current house over the past two years we know exactly what we need in the next house that we don’t have/can’t create in this one.

Master Bedroom | Offset Window Problem SOLVED!

Hello my lovelies,

Things have been moving full speed since we last spoke and I feel like I’ve so much to tell you but not enough time to explain it all right now, so to make things simple I’m-a-guna-break-it-doooown and start with a master bedroom update. Remember waaaay back in February I mentioned a few ideas we had about sorting out our off-set windows? Well we finally got the problem solved. It was a pretty easy job to be fair – an extra long Ikea curtain pole, two pairs of the Red Genevieve Pencil Pleat curtains from Dunelm Mill and a little effort – we had it fixed up in no time.

Operation Good-lookin’ Garden | Painting External Wood

Hello my lovelies,

Since the sun is (mostly) shining and the weather has been relatively dry, the hubby and I have started to focus a bit more on the outside of the house again. Last time the weather picked up we got the back garden turfed and seeded and fenced off the front. Now the race is on to get the second stage of ‘operation goodlookin’-garden’ finished before the poor weather strikes again!

Hidden Danger | Vertical Blinds

Hello my lovelies,

Things have (as always) been pretty hectic this month, but I just wanted to take a few minutes to share this with you as I think it’s very important to get this out there – and this may be a long one… there’s a story involved!

We had to put the bedroom on hold while we worked out a cheap (and safe) solution for the bay window in the living room and we really neededΒ to get that done ASAP…. and this is why…
