AD Welcome to the Jungle

A Guest Bedroom makeover with Rebel Walls and Oak Furniture Land We’ve pretty much flew through renovating the house; moving from room to room one after another but after a little break I was desperate to do something bold and I had a full guest bedroom to do from scratch!

Budget Bathroom Makeover

Doing a full house makeover is only easy if you have a BIG money pot right? WRONG! Now I do think there are certain jobs you probably do need some money for there are others you can certainly do on a budget!

Andy will of course be happy with this news but what will we talk about? Any suggestions please let me know. Recently I started a little makeover on the bathroom…

And if you’ve been following me a while you’ll know I’ve been at it for a while now too! Alice’s room for example has those gorgeous layered mountains and I have a corner of pink in my living room.
