Save Time and buy a Sander

If you're in the process of decorating or planning your next DIY, please save yourself time and buy a sander. I managed to strip the remaining paint from my skirting boards and paint rails, sanded and painted them all in a day without breaking a sweat. By far, my best purchase this year! There are hundreds... Continue Reading →

My not so Tiny House

I spent my entire Saturday in bed and loved every minute of it! I caught up on my reading, ate a ton of junk food (don’t tell my trainer) and spent hours perusing Netflix categories. Normally, I’ll get my teeth stuck in a T.V series and I’ll be lost to the world but this weekend,... Continue Reading →

Peeling back the layers

The skirting boards have been my latest project. Currently they are painted in a cream or an off white but continuing with the current theme, these too will be painted in bright white. I chose to strip the old paint from the skirting boards to ensure I achieve a nice smooth finish. I purchased a... Continue Reading →

Electrician for the day

I'm a perfectionist. No point denying it. Everything must be as I have envisioned it or it just doesn't work, this is why I decided to change the wall socket and light switch, as I thought they could and should look better. So off I went to my local Homebase to pick up these beauties.... Continue Reading →
