Brightening up our Son’s Bedroom

My son’s bedroom is a bit meh. It’s the last room of the house that could really do with an update. When we first moved in, it was probably the room that needed sorting the least. That’s why it’s been left until last. But now that the rest of the house has been revamped, his room really stands out. There’s nothing wrong with it really, it’s just meh. So we’ve decided to refresh it a bit, and we’re going to try and do it on a budget. Refreshing a child’s bedroom doesn’t have to cost the earth. A wee sort out and […]

Spring Cleaning My Life

Today is the first day of March, and although it may not feel like it, Spring is definitely on the way. I can’t say that January and February have been great for me. The beginning of 2017 definitely hasn’t been the best start to the year. Don’t get me wrong, nothing bad has happened.

Children’s bedroom Storage – Room to Grow

My children have too much stuff. There, I said it, it can’t be taken back. They have enough toys, enough clothes, enough books, yet I still continue to add to their collections. Adding to their collection of stuff is easy, the problem comes when you have a to find a home for it all. I think it’s a common thing with children. Too much stuff, not enough space. Hands up who has watched their child opening birthday presents secretly wondering ‘Where the hell is all of this going to go?’ When it comes to children’s bedrooms, the key is utilising […]

Our Living Room Makeover

I’ve been wanting to redecorate our living room for ages. Since before Christmas in fact. We’ve been buying bits here and there, wall art, paint, cushions. But, as with many other plans, we just never found the time or the money to get the project off the ground. There always seemed to be something else that needed to be done first It’s been getting to me, the state of our living room. It was getting to a point where I didn’t even enjoy spending time in that room. Dramatic, I know, but I’m dramatic about most things! Lets rewind a […]
