TRASH TO TREASURE CISTERN | THIS LITTLE HOUSE

1

The phrase “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” has never been truer than with this old cistern.

My husband’s friend took it out of an old retirement home that were updating their sanitaryware and he immediately knew it would be something that would interest us. He sent a photo straight across to my husband to see if we wanted to restore it and use it in the house renovation.

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,

So we did it… we sold our first home and have bought a new one… which is why I have been absent on here for so long.

We have been working flat out on stripping out the new house as it was in quite a poorly state and is a much bigger project than the last house, but I’m here with a little update as we are now at the stage where we can take a breath and start to plan how we are going to put it all back together again!
