Ikea Christmas 2015

This will be the very first Christmas our families are coming to us - I'm really excited (and slightly apprehensive) in making the house nice in time and then for cooking and hosting and making everyone happy.

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

The nights drawing in mean I'm already looking forward to transforming our flat into a twinkly fairy light Christmas extravaganza!

Our before and after bathroom makeover

It's been so long since I put up a post I've almost forgotten what to do! I've been consumed by Christmas and New Year fun, and planning our wedding! All very exciting, but it's about time I shared some pictures of our bathroom, which is now finished!
