About Me

My photo
I am a SAHM who does work from home occasionally, dedicated to raising 3 Godly, independent, healthy children. Loving the home building process though it is not without challenges. I have fairly free reign over the creative aspect of the project...just not the financial side!

Yearly garden spam

Our garden has just had its fourth birthday. Whilst the back and sides are flourishing, the front still is struggling in comparison. In the backyard we made the mistake of not cutting down the hibiscus trees and the bottom was starting to radically thin out. We have pruned them back to half their size recently in the hope of encouraging growth back down below.
Hopefully within the next year, we will have some good garden lighting installed.

New splashback

My kitchen splashback was one thing that never sat well with me - too dark, flat and heavy! We engaged the services of a tiler for another project so we decided to change over the splashback too.
Whilst I was led to believe this was a small, quick job, it actually involved demolishing the whole wall.

By the next day, it was all finished off. I couldn't be more pleased with the result.

Office/guest room

The room not yet seen finished. This room is near the front door on the right and is a multipurpose room. An office area for us with a sofa bed for guests. Fortunately we don't have guests too often as it is a little squeezy when the bed is folded out. 
The print is from Etsy which incorporates a favourite Bible verse and we have the World's Most Expensive floating shelf over the desk but that is a looooong story!

Lounge room finished

Finally! Nearly 2 years on, we received the final major piece for our formal lounge (the one that we don't really use much) A rug arrived from the U.S today wrapped in 5 different layers which was very frustrating. On a side note, I cannot believe that all those TV reno shows can dress a room in mere minutes. It took me about 25 minutes to get the plastic off one rug.

I just love the rug and how it changes the feel of the room. It really pulls the furniture all together.
