Our before and after kitchen makeover

Our compact kitchen is now a much nicer room to spend time cooking in. The makeover is finished, and Stuart did it all himself (apart from the gas work) in two weeks - he's getting very good at fitting Ikea kitchens! We needed the kitchen to be finished quite quickly and to a budget. So things… Continue reading Our before and after kitchen makeover

Our before and after hallway makeover

Our one bed basement flat may be small in many ways, but we do have our own front door and a really good sized hallway (both plus points in small London flats). When we moved in it was a damp and dark space, with dodgy floorboards and dirty magnolia walls. It had one sad looking… Continue reading Our before and after hallway makeover

Down at the bottom of the garden…

As we live in London, we're really lucky to have a good size garden. This does mean though that due to lack of time and money to do anything with it, a large section of it had become a dumping area for wood, stones and weeds.

The bathroom in our London basement flat before… Continue reading Our before and after bathroom makeover

We have finally finished sanding the rest of the floorboards in our flat! The whole flat now has the original floorboards on show, and it's looking so much better. We even sanded the bathroom floor, to keep a flow of flooring throughout. As the flat isn't very big, this makes it feel more spacious. The… Continue reading Sanded floorboards

White with a pop of yellow

We are currently redoing our bathroom. I roped in my wonderful Dad who came to stay for four days to help us sort out all the initial daunting prep bits. As I mentioned in my previous post, Bathroom blues, the bath was sinking into the floor. So for the last few months the three-legged bath… Continue reading White with a pop of yellow

Growing our own update

Everything seems to have suddenly gone crazy in our garden. We've had so much rain it's resembling a mini jungle at the moment, but at least things are growing, including things in the vegetable patch. This is the first time I've attempted to grow my own food, so it's all new to me. I hadn't… Continue reading Growing our own update
