Other Rooms

This is where you will find all the other rooms in my home like the boys bedrooms and bits that don’t fit into any other category. If you love a good ‘before and after’ then this is the section for you. The Boys bedroom have undergone amazing transformations and this category is fast becoming my favourite. I hope you love it as much as I do.

My Plans for a Glam Man Cave Bedroom

My Landing

Way back at the beginning of this year I created 2 posts. Both were wish lists for the things I’d like to achieve with the house. A bit like a decorating New Years resolution list. One list is for all the boring practical things that need doing. The other for the more exciting decorating and faffing. I’m secretly so happy that I wrote these posts as I’ve been going back to them to tick them off and link them to posts as I go along. And actually I’ve given myself a pat on the back too, I didn’t realise I could achieve this much in 6 months that’s for sure. So now’s the turn of Eldest RFW. Here’s my plans for a glam man cave style bedroom for him. Continue Reading…

Making The Most Of A Small Bedroom

Making the most of a small bedroom

If like me you have one bedroom that is so tiny you can barely swing a cat in it then this is the post for you. Having a four bedroomed home and three children means what was once the nursery is now the home of youngest RFW. Who  at approaching 17 is also six foot two and still growing. So when it became time to redecorate his bedroom you can imagine the design dilemmas it gave me. Making the most of a small bedroom though is not as hard as you think. Here’s ?? ways to make the space feel much bigger. Continue Reading…

DIY Leather Cabinet Pull

DIY Leather Cabinet Pull

Once I’d made the wardrobe in youngest RFWs bedroom I quickly realised that. A. I am so happy with my work. OK, it’s not perfect but come on, it only cost me around £90 to make. Can you imagine the extra noughts that a professional would add to that?? And. B. It looked a little bland from the outside, so much so that youngest RFW asked if we could remove the door again. And that’s the thing about an initial design you have to be flexible in your approach. What works on paper doesn’t always work in practise. Originally we were going to have an open deisgn but youngest RFW didn’t want everything on show and this evolved into a wardrobe. It was a good choice too as it was cheaper to make without the extra scaffolding. Anyhoo, to continue the rooms theme I came up with this DIY leather cabinet pull. Continue Reading…

DIY Round Mirror With Leather Strap And Hanging Peg

DIY WALL MIRROR WITH LEATHER STRAP AND HANGING KNOB

If you’ve been following youngest RFW’s bedroom makeover you will already know that I am limited by budget. Never one to be put off I enjoy finding ways around this. As you already know I made most of the furniture myself but when it comes to accessories I thought I would just have to buy everything. That is until I tried to find a mirror that suited the room and more importantly my budget! Well, could I find anything? You got it, not a sausage! As I was saying though, where there’s a will, there’s usually a way. So the cogs in my brain began to whirr (as they do) waiting for that light bulb moment. Why does it always come to you in the middle of the night? And here you have it, my DIY round mirror with leather strap and a hanging peg. 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…
