Every so often you write a piece that you’re over the moon with. So to make them easy to find they’ve been added to the featured section of the blog. Here you’ll find my latest offerings along with older posts that I particularly love but you may not find as they’re buried deep down in the depths of the blog. I hope you enjoy reading my favourite posts as much as I enjoyed writing them.

Hello lovelies, can you hear the fanfare playing in the background? No! How about the drum roll? No?? Surely you can. I’m letting you into a little secret, guess what? Yep, that’s right. The clue is in the title. I’m only launching a THE shop here on Raspberry Flavoured Windows! Eeekkkkk! Please be gentle with me.

Monochrome Hallway Makeover Reveal

Monochrome Hallway Reveal

 

That’s it, I’ve decided on the epitaph for my gravestone. ‘Here lies Rachel, she hasn’t decorated her hallway since 2019!’ I am never, repeat never, decorating the hall, stairs and landing ever again! Talk about cut off from the world. My every waking moment for the last three weeks has been spent painting. I had the walls and ceilings done in less than a week, but OMFG there is A LOT of woodwork. And cutting in! No masking tape was used or harmed in the process of this makeover. Mainly due to nothing being straight! Are you ready to see my monochrome hallway makeover reveal? As usual everything was striped, painted, sanded, painted, undercoated, painted and finally designed by moi. Continue Reading…

Small Teenagers Bedroom Reveal

Small Teenagers bedroom reveal After

If you’ve been following my Instagram Story’s or read the post on my design for youngest RFW’s bedroom you’ll know I’ve been a busy bee the last few weeks. Actually, before I go any further I should apologise for the lack of posting on Instagram. Or for that matter commenting too for the last week or so. I am slowly getting back into the swing of things. But boy has this room makeover caused chaos in the rest of the house! Like epic mess!! Thankfully apart from a few little bits. And what feels like 742 tip runs the house is slowly getting back to normal. Well our normal anyway. And so I thought you might like to see my youngest teenagers small bedroom now it’s finished, ready for the reveal? Continue Reading…

Vestibule Makeover

Vestibule Makeover from Raspberry Flavoured Windows

Vestibule, a small room or chamber which separates the outer door of a home from the interior of a building. I’m not quite sure why some homes have them. Maybe it’s so we can greet a visitor and decide whether we want them to come into our home. Maybe it’s to reduce heat loss?? Whatever the reason I’m lucky enough to have one. It may be small in stature but as with all my small rooms I want it to be big on style and so I decided to give my own vestibule a makeover.

Transform A Mirror With Gilding Paste

How To Transform a Mirror With Gilding Paste

 

As you probably know by now I’m a lover of a bargain! And where better to pick one up than at a car boot sale? BTW, never come to boot sale with me. I treat the whole thing as a military exercise. My husband hates going with me because I tend to go at speed, like duurrrhh! What if you miss a bargain.  Sometimes you find something and just have to have it even though you’ve no idea what you’re going to do with it. Nor where it will going to go either. And that was exactly the case with this mirror. It was in my dining room for a while but as that had a revamp a little while ago it’s sat forlorn and unloved in the outhouse. A light bulb moment a couple of days ago had me running in there to dig it out so here’s how to transform a mirror with gilding paste for anyone who fancies a go at it themselves.  Continue Reading…
