What I’ve been up to…

things have been a little quiet here- but very busy behind the scenes. Last year we bought our first house and, although we have not had structural work done, everything has needed updating. The house was rented, and run into the ground. 

Most of the rooms have been dramatically improved by a clean, new carpet, and a lick of paint. But the kitchen was another matter. It was a real bodge job, and uncared for. Bad tiling, bad paint job, bodged cupboards and a washing machine and dishwasher stacked on top of each other. 

I’m a real scrimper, will DIY when I can, but the kitchen was all done by Homebase, and I don’t regret a thing! 

Cupboards: Chancery gloss white 

Tiles: White subway gloss 

Counter: light bamboo laminate 

Our experience was on the whole positive.
